WongPartnership Tops Bloomberg's Global Legal Adviser Rankings 2016
WongPartnership has emerged as the top legal adviser to Lenders to Singapore Borrowers (by volume as well as market share) in Bloomberg’s Global Legal Adviser League Table report for 2016. WongPartnership pipped 14 other local and international law firms to first place with deals amounting close to US$3.8 billion (about S$5.45 billion). The Firm also gained 8.5% in market share from 2015 to close 2016 with the highest market share of 23% by a single firm of the Singapore Borrower loans market. In the APAC ex-Japan Loans market, WongPartnership also scored highly, being the only Singapore law firm to be ranked in the Legal Adviser (Borrower) league table by deal count and the top-ranking Singapore law firm in the Legal Adviser (Lender) league table by volume and market share.
WongPartnership has achieved the rare feat of being awarded Top Tier rankings in the major transactional practices of Corporate and M&A, Capital Markets and Banking & Finance as well as in Dispute Resolution, in the recently released The Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2017. This is the first time any Singapore law firm has received top rankings in all these major areas of practice over the last 10 years. The guide which is one of the world's most renowned and reputable circulating legal ranking publications has for the past 28 years, provided clients with insights to the global legal market by assessing the strengths of law firms in over 100 jurisdictions and feedback from 250,000 clients worldwide.
Mr Alvin Yeo, Senior Counsel, WongPartnership's Chairman and Senior Partner has once again been acknowledged as one of Singapore's best arbitration practitioners. In the latest edition of Who's Who Legal: Arbitration 2017, Mr Yeo is lauded as "a leading light in the market who possesses strong arbitration credentials and experience". In the inaugural edition of Who’s Who Legal: Arbitration – Future Leaders 2017, Partner Ms Koh Swee Yen has been recognised as one of the "outstanding members of the next generation" under the age of 45 and is one of 16 lawyers from Singapore to receive this endorsement.
In a long-standing legal battle between the Astro Group and the Lippo Group, the Hong Kong Court of Appeal has dismissed an appeal by the Lippo group with respect to its challenge in the Hong Kong courts to the enforcement of an arbitral award in favour of the Astro Group.
This matter was of international significance as it involved novel and complex principles of arbitration law, some of which have not been specifically determined by any court of law elsewhere.
Partners, Mr Chou Sean Yu and Ms Lim Wei Lee from WongPartnership, represent the Astro Group.
