Lawyer Rankings(Firms to watch)
Withers KhattarWong LLP has latterly been strengthening its technology offering in Asia, most notably with the recent hire of Jonathan Kok, formerly of RHTLaw Asia LLP; he joins an increasingly recognised team which fields well regarded practitioners such as Jim Lim.(Leading individuals)
Withers KhattarWong LLP has a fine reputation in contentious IP, particularly in transactional-related and licensing matters. It is also noted for trade mark infringement and passing off actions at the High Court, along with opposition and revocation cases before the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore. The arrival of Alvin Lim as special counsel from Ravindran Associates in 2021, broadens the firm’s offering in contentious IP, including in the patent, trade marks, copyright and trade secrets segments. The wider team continues to be known for its work in the tech sector, though it has a breadth of experience across multiple industries. Jonathan Kok leads the team with Jim Lim retiring from the partnership to become a consultant.
