Employment Disputes

Employment disputes are usually sensitive in nature, emotionally charged and can affect the reputation of the parties involved. While knowledge of the applicable employment laws and regulations is important, we recognise that empathy is key to being effective in this area of practice and we have considerable experience advising a range of clients, including listed and private companies and directors, on a spectrum of employment disputes, such as breaches of contract, wrongful dismissals, breach of fiduciary duties, and the enforcement of non-compete covenants.

    Thank you for reaching out to us. Kindly fill up this form and we aim to reply you as soon as possible. For more urgent matters, please call us at +65 6323 8383.
