Features Thio Shen Yi, SC, Stefanie Yuen Thio, Melvin Chan, Jennifer Chia, Ian Lim, Ong Pei Ching, Felicia Tan, Nicholas Ngo, Derek Loh

We are pleased to share that TSMP Law Corporation has been well ranked in the Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2020 edition.

Our Corporate and M&A, and Labour and employment practices have been ranked Tier 2; Construction, Dispute resolution, and Restructuring and insolvency practices have been ranked Tier 3; and Banking and finance, and Capital markets practices have been ranked Tier 4.

Three lawyers have been named “Leading Lawyers” in their practices. Thio Shen Yi, SC (Dispute resolution) and Stefanie Yuen Thio (Corporate and M&A) retain this accolade from the 2019 edition, with Ian Lim (Labour and employment) joining the ranks this year.

Senior associate Nicholas Ngo (Labour and employment) has also been named Rising Star.

The following lawyers received shout-outs in the editorial:

Banking and finance:

Jennifer Chia is a corporate real estate specialist with an extensive finance background”

Capital markets – equity and debt:

“Despite a slump in capital markets issuances, the firm has remained active in Catalist deals, rights issues and MTN programmes. Stefanie Yuen Thio heads the transactional group and has extensive capital markets experience.”

Construction:

“Co-heads Derek Loh and Melvin Chan have extensive experience resolving disputes in the construction and engineering industry.”

Corporate and M&A

Stefanie Yuen Thio has an outstanding reputation for dealmaking, while Jennifer Chia is noted for corporate real estate deals.

Dispute resolution

Thio Shen Yi SC has plenty of big-ticket case experience; he is noted for commercial and trusts litigation, along with contentious insolvency and restructuring matters. Adrian Tan has an impressive record in TMT, IP, data and collective sales disputes. Melvin Chan is recommended for construction cases, acting primarily for contractors. Ian Lim leads on employment and data protection disputes.

Labour and employment

TSMP Law Corporation provides ‘prompt, friendly, expert and practical guidance on Singapore employment law’ and has a strong track record in non-contentious employment advisory work, as well as advocacy in employment claims tribunals and High Court disputes. Practice head Ian Lim is singled out for his ‘legal acumen and remarkably sound advice’, particularly in relation to the employment aspects of international  transactions. Also of note is senior associate Nicholas Ngo, who is highlighted for his ‘impressive legal knowledge and understanding’.

Restructuring and insolvency

The practice has bolstered its litigation and transactional bench strength with the recruitment of Adrian Tan and Pei Ching Ong from Morgan Lewis Stamford LLC in 2018 and Felicia Tan from Incisive Law LLC in February 2019. Shen Yi Thio, SC and Stefanie Yuen Thio are the key partners.
