About

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.

We also have a very collegiate environment here, and our associates are a wonderful bunch of people.
