TKQP wins Asialaw Asia-Pacific Dispute Resolution Awards’ Matter of the Year 2016 award

TKQP is pleased to announce that the Accent Delight International Ltd v Bouvier, Yves Charles Edgar matter has garnered the Asialaw Asia-Pacific Dispute Resolution Awards’ Matter of the Year 2016 award. These awards celebrate the achievements of lawyers in various practice groups across 14 jurisdictions. In selecting the winners, Asialaw undertook detailed research from a variety of sources and consulted private practice lawyers, in-house counsel and barristers.

TKQP acted for one of the defendants accused of defrauding Mr Dmitry Rybolovlev, a Russian Oligarch and owner of AS Monaco Football Club, of some US$1 billion from the purchase of numerous masterpieces, including works by Picasso, Monet, Rothko and Da Vinci. We successfully obtained the discharge of a worldwide Mareva or freezing injunction that had been previously obtained against our client. The Court of Appeal’s judgment is now the leading case on worldwide freezing injunctions. This complex cross-border dispute has been publicised and followed all over the world.

The matter was led by Senior Partner, Paul Seah and supported by:

  • Of Counsel, Calvin Liang; and
  • Associates, Eugene Low; Kristy Teo; and Rachel Chin.
