“Always do the right thing.”

Among Melvin’s most prized possessions is a modest business-card holder, a gift from a transient worker client for whom he had successfully fought pro bono. It is symbolic of fact that while Melvin has triumphed over many landmark commercial cases, nothing quite gratifies him than when he finds justice for the indigent. As TSMP’s pro bono director, he partners with various charitable and non-governmental organisations including the Law Society Pro Bono Services Office, Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics and Transient Workers Count 2, to represent those unable to afford legal services.

Nevertheless, the Co-head of Construction & Engineering brings the same focus and commitment to pursuing every claim, whether it is over a billion-dollar petrochemical refinery dispute, or regarding overtime salary owed to a migrant builder. His mainstay is in civil and commercial litigation, where he has extensive experience in contentious construction and engineering disputes, both in Court and arbitration. He takes particular pleasure in breaking new legal ground, for then the Court decision not only benefits his client, but also all the clients after his. His work has been recognised by top global journals including Chambers, Benchmark Litigation, The Legal 500 and Asialaw.

An inveterate marathon runner, Melvin believes that the sport’s discipline and rigour translates to practice, bringing competitiveness, commitment and dedicated preparation into the courtroom. Besides: “You’ll be amazed what novel legal arguments one can come up with when faced with the banality of a 30km training run,” he says with a laugh.
