I am an associate in the Dispute Resolution Group of our Singapore office. I provide solutions to our clients on a wide range of contentious commercial matters through Bird & Bird's global platform.

My primary area of practice is commercial disputes. I have acted for and advised clients in various contentious commercial matters at the Supreme Court and State Courts of Singapore, as well as the Singapore International Arbitration Centre.

I have worked with a diverse range of local and international clients across different sectors, including retail & consumer, technology & communications, and life sciences & healthcare.
