Tan Kok Quan Partnership, a renowned Singapore based law firm, recently announced the promotion of Paul Seah to the position of Senior Partner. Paul graduated from the National University of Singapore in 2005 with a 2nd (Upper) class Honours, having been on the Dean’s List while he was in school. He began his legal practice in 2006 at Tan Kok Quan Partnership where he did his pupillage.
Paul’s main area of practice is in civil and commercial disputes, where he has represented clients in a sterling list of high-profile cases, many of which have been reported widely in the local and international press. He also acted for one of the accused persons in the City Harvest trial, which is the longest running criminal trial in Singapore’s history. In addition, Paul specialises in insolvency and restructuring work, and has advised Singapore’s leading accounting firms and financial institutions on some of Singapore’s more complex insolvencies in recent years.
Paul’s work has garnered plaudits from independent legal publications, including Asian Legal Business’ “40 Under 40 – Asia’s Brightest Young Legal Minds” and Singapore Business Review’s “Singapore’s 20 Most Influential Lawyers 40 and Under”.
Joint managing partners, Marina Chin and Eddee Ng, said: “We are proud and pleased that Paul is admitted as a Senior Partner, and congratulate him on achieving this well-deserved milestone. Paul’s career growth demonstrates the Firm’s commitment in nurturing and retaining talented lawyers. He will be playing a substantial part in the Firm’s plans to grow, and we look forward to his continued contribution.”
