Market Recognition

“I have found him to be amongst the leading lawyers in the world of corporate trust advisory - and not just among his PQE peers but across the entire market….He is one of the handful of lawyers in the market I would turn to with almost any question. His status as the l‎eading corporate trust lawyer in the APAC region is already established.”

He invariably provides alternatives or solutions to problems and is able to navigate complex transactions with a commercial approach whilst not increasing the risk profile for his clients.”
