The firm

Established in early 2010, Nicholas & Tan Partnership LLP is a specialist litigation firm with the capability to handle complex litigation across a broad range of practice areas, including banking, finance, company, real property, intellectual property, tort, administrative and criminal law particularly commercial (or 'white-collar') crime.

Areas of practice

International standards and personalised service at lower cost: the firm has extensive expertise litigating a wide range of civil and criminal disputes in all the Singapore Courts, and in handling domestic and international arbitrations. It has the capacity to handle, to the same exacting standards and at lower cost, complex commercial and criminal disputes which traditionally has often been perceived as requiring the experience and expertise of the larger local and international firms. The firm provides a personalised service without the administrative procedures, distance and formality common to many larger firms. And, unlike the usual practice in such firms, each matter undertaken by the firm at all times receives the direct personal attention of the principal partner.

Holistic client relationships and business-oriented solutions: the firm approach's its clients' legal issues within the larger framework of their strategic business goals. It believes in not only helping its clients to find a solution to the immediate problems at hand, but it also believes in seeing its clients' situation whole and addressing all the issues presented. Its aim is to provide timely, business-oriented and value-added services (it is readily available, often at short notice and during unsociable hours, to assist its clients) customised to the legal requirements of its clients, always bearing in mind the practical and commercial realities of each particular matter.

The firm is committed to the pursuit of excellence through passion, and to providing cost-effective solutions to clients operating in Asia and beyond.
