About Me

I'm a partner in our international Employment group based in Singapore. I am head of our highly-regarded Singapore Employment practice, which is made up of a group of talented Employment lawyers.

My work is about making sure that things run smoothly in all stages in the employee life cycle for our clients. I believe that sound employment law advice goes beyond legal risk management or crossing regulatory hurdles – employee experience is something we think hard about when we give HR advice.

My team and I regularly advise multinational clients on the full spectrum of employment law issues in Singapore and the ASEAN region. Clients know us to be responsive, insightful and commercially-minded. You will find us ranked in most major legal directories.

I am an active litigator and an experienced advocate as well as an accredited mediator with the Singapore Mediation Centre. In addition, I am also a member of the Association of Workplace Investigators.
