Doris is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) and a Fellow of the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators (SIAC). Our team has acted in several arbitration matters involving regional and local parties.
We provide strategic advice to our clients to help them solve their legal problems. If necessary, we go to court for them to help them achieve their legal goals. We have appeared in the Court of Appeal, the High Court and the State Courts on many different kinds of cases.
We have advised and acted for many clients with their divorce, maintenance, care and control, variation orders and other orders.
We have acted in many cases where one party breached the contract in cases involving construction, sale of goods and provision of services etc.
We have advised and acted for clients in respect of shareholder’s disputes, special investigations, defamation, minority oppression claims and companies winding up applications. We have worked with lawyers in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda when representing public listed companies in Singapore that are incorporated in those countries. We have extensive experience in matters relating to hedge funds.
We have acted for high-profile clients to obtain protection under the law for the various types of harassing conduct they face. These range from physical stalking and threats of violence to the publication of untrue, abusive, and offensive content on the Internet and social media. We are also skilled in online investigation techniques that allow us to track down anonymous content posters.
We have advised and acted for corporate clients in relation to injuries suffered on their premises by third parties and liaising with their insurers on the claims made by third parties.
We have advised and acted for major creditors in Scheme of arrangements and when a Receiver & Manager is appointed. The cases we have acted in are:
We have advised and acted for clients who experience disputes with their neighbours arising from noise, disturbances or inconsiderate behaviour. We help our clients draft complaints or requests to relevant authorities such as the Housing and Development Board, town councils or the Building and Construction Authority. We also represent our clients in mediations before the Community Mediation Centre and the State Courts’ Centre for Dispute Resolution.
When a disagreement cannot be resolved by settlement or mediation, we will file a claim in Court under the Community Dispute Resolution Act. This allows our clients to obtain court orders prohibiting their neighbours from continuing to engage in the disruptive conduct. We also act for clients who face threatening, abusive, or violent conduct in the lodging of a criminal complaint, or in the initiation of a civil lawsuit.
