THE FIRM

TAN KOK QUAN PARTNERSHIP is a full service law firm providing legal services across a broad spectrum of industry sectors. Our firm’s principal founder and first managing partner was Tan Kok Quan, Senior Counsel, a well-respected litigator who was among the first batch of lawyers to be appointed senior counsel in Singapore. From 2007 to early 2015, our firm was helmed by Kannan Ramesh, Senior Counsel, the first senior counsel to be groomed from within our firm and under whose stewardship, our firm grew to more than 35 lawyers, becoming one of the leading legal practices in Singapore. Today, our firm is jointly led by Marina Chin and Eddee Ng, and continues to have a reputation for top-quality legal services, frequently garnering plaudits from clients and independent leading legal publications such as Asian Legal Business, Euromoney and Chambers Asia-Pacific. We recognise the importance of our legal advice integrating with our clients’ larger commercial picture. We are passionate about our work and actively look for ways to build upon the success of our clients and our firm. We are also well aware of our corporate social responsibility role. We are strongly committed to giving back to the society and making a difference. Our lawyers regularly handle pro bono matters under the various legal assistance initiatives led by the Singapore Law Society, such as the Community Legal Clinic and the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme.

TKQP Scores Victory in Precedent-Setting Case

TKQP has secured victory in a first of its kind case in the common law world involving the legal consequences of certain SWIFT messages. SWIFT is commonly used as a means of communication between financial institutions around the world.

The case, which was heard by Sir Jeremy Cooke in the Singapore International Commercial Court (“SICC”), involved issues relating to the allocation of risk/liability between a sending bank and a beneficiary bank, in a cross-border transfer of funds where the payment information and the settlement instructions are sent in two separate message flows. The SICC’s decision will have ramifications on the jurisprudence and practice of bank payments around the world.

The team was led by Joint Managing Partner and Co-Head of Disputes, Mr Eddee Ng and assisted by Mr Siew Guo Wei and Ms Vinna Yip, both Senior Associates of TKQP. TKQP was very pleased to have worked alongside Mr Raymond Cox QC in its first matter before the SICC.

NUS Centre for Banking & Finance Law Presents The Project Finance Academy Workshop – 14-16 November

A recent Asian Development Bank report indicates that Asia needs to invest US$26 trillion from 2016 to 2030 if the region is to maintain its growth momentum. Given the pressing need to accelerate the pace of energy and infrastructure upgrading and developments in this part of the world, Singapore is positioning itself as the Infrastructure Hub for Asia.

This three-day practical “hands-on” workshop will take participants through the main legal considerations in structuring project finance transactions. Participants will gain an understanding of the real-life considerations and tensions that underlie key provisions of a typical Concession Agreement, and related Project and Financing Documents. Participants will learn how to structure and negotiate documents that anticipate and deal with potential issues. The focus will be on project finance practice as it happens in Asia. Participants will also get to interact with a panel of experienced market players active in the region. Participants will be expected to participate actively in role-play exercises that illustrate the evolving dynamics of a typical transaction.

Participants may obtain up to 15 public CPD points for this workshop. For more details or registration, please click here Project Finance Academy.

Careers

At Tan Kok Quan Partnership, we pride ourselves at being a great place to work. We are always on the lookout for driven and self-motivated individuals who are good team players. If you think you might be a good fit, get in touch with us!

Our firm culture
No one is overlooked in our firm. Trainees will have a chance to interact with all the lawyers in the firm both professionally and socially. Whilst we expect our lawyers to give the best of their time and effort in their work, we also recognise that they need to have a good quality of life and develop pursuits outside the law. We also have a very collegiate environment here, and our associates are a wonderful bunch of people.

If you are a dynamic and motivated individual with good academic results and would like a challenging and exciting career with one of the leading law practices in Singapore, contact us.

By sending us your application and/or curriculum vitae, you accept the terms of our Personal Data Protection Policy.

Practice trainees
Our key areas of practice are Disputes, Banking and Finance, Infrastructure and Projects, Restructuring and Insolvency, Insurance, Real Estate and Corporate.

The emphasis of our practice training contract programme is to train our practice trainees to become competent lawyers with great depth of experience in the shortest time.

We recognise that each individual is different, and we nurture each trainee accordingly so that they can realise their own potential. In training our practice trainees, we aim to give them as much hands-on experience as possible. All our trainees will be assigned one or more supervising solicitors to guide them through their practice training. They also work directly with the senior partners, giving them the opportunity to learn from some of the very best legal minds in various fields.

Internships
We place great emphasis on nurturing the next generation of lawyers, and aim to value-add to every intern who comes through our doors. Interns are assigned two mentors each, and will be involved in their mentors’ active cases.  Interns are encouraged to communicate their goals and objectives for the internship, and to proactively seek exposure to areas of interest.  Interns will experience real-world legal work, and will be encouraged to contribute positively to the work done by their mentors.  Interns can expect a steep learning curve, but also instruction and training to guide them through work assigned.

Internships are available with our Disputes, Restructuring and Insolvency, and Insurance practice groups.  Internship applications should include a Curriculum Vitae with supporting documents, and a cover letter with the desired period of internship and practice group, and explaining why you would like to intern. Please send your application to internships@tkqp.com.sg.
