16 September 2020
Cavenagh Law, the Formal Law Alliance partner of Clifford Chance in Singapore, has appointed commercial litigation and international arbitration expert Paul Tan as partner.
Tan has deep experience advising on complex issues of public and private international law. His clients have included leading multinational organizations, global insurers, financial institutions and Asian governments.
“We are delighted to welcome such a well-regarded litigator to our team,” said Cavenagh Law managing partner Paul Sandosham. “Paul’s skills as lead counsel on high profile trials, appeals and arbitration-related litigation, will complement our talented team and bolster our support for clients on contentious matters in Singapore and the region.”
Tan brings particular knowledge and experience in managing disputes across Southeast Asia and will be actively engaged in the firm’s cross-border litigation practice in the region.
Recent cases include successfully advising on the setting-aside of a treaty award for the Government of Lesotho before the Singapore courts, defending a government against a multi-billion claim on an oil exploration service contract, and leading a successful claim for losses caused by a joint-venturer to shares pledged under a complex non-recourse loan agreement before the Singapore International Commercial Court.
