In recent years, we have acted in the largest cheating cases under the Casino Control Act, been appointed by the Court to act in a high profile double murder case involving an off-duty police officer, as well as numerous other complex white and blue collar crime matters.

We are experienced at defending companies facing regulatory action, and in conducting prosecutions for government authorities. As one of the few firms in Singapore with a dedicated criminal practice, we have been instrumental in advancing criminal procedure in the republic.
