In the Singaporean law firms section, our lawyers were mentioned alongside prominent figures in the Singapore legal industry. GRR also highlighted Meiyen’s experience “working for creditors in Pacific Andes”, “acting on a US$1.11 billion hotel group’s restructuring” and “acting for luxury plan operator Zetta Jet’s US Chapter 7 trustee”.
The article commented how Singapore has a commonly recognised “big four” in its legal market but acknowledged other local firms with their own offerings such as Oon & Bazul. On the latest developments and biggest industries for restructuring in Singapore, finance and shipping, in particular the offshore support sector was emphasised.
GRR profiles the top firms and individuals in Singapore through an extensive research methodology done on the ground as well as combining information gathered from the GRR100 annual guide and its sister publication Who’s Who Legal: Restructuring & Insolvency, which conducts an annual peer-to-peer survey of the most highly respected lawyers in the restructuring space globally.
