The firm: Legis Point LLC was established in 2006 by senior practitioners to provide independent, specialist and bespoke legal services to domestic and international banks, financial institutions, corporations, domestic and international law firms as well as high-net-worth individuals.

The firm was established by Young Chee Foong and Samuel Chacko, both recognised experts and consistently ranked as leading practitioners in their respective fields.

Since its inception, the firm has grown in terms of its services and has more than doubled the number of its fee-earners. The firm also has an established network of counterpart firms in the region and beyond. The firm positions itself as the ‘go-to’ law practice for clients, an ’employer of choice’ for lawyers and staff, and a ‘responsible citizen’ for the community at large with a policy of encouraging diversity and pro bono initiatives.

Areas of practice: Legis Point LLC provides premier legal advice and representation to clients in its specialist areas.

The firm is highly regarded for its banking and finance work. This covers structuring, documentation and advisory services for all forms of loans and financing, including domestic and international syndications, secured transactions, share and asset financing, aircraft/vessel financing, as well as debt restructuring, private banking, and banking, regulatory and compliance advice and services.

The firm’s highly respected dispute resolution practice handles mediation, litigation, arbitration, adjudication and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. The practice covers all commercial areas and includes pre-emptive and pre-litigation advice, strategy and representation. The reach of the practice extends over and beyond Singapore and, in the area of arbitration, covers all the main internationally recognised arbitration regimes and rules.
