Managing Partner

Judy graduated with a Bachelor of Laws degree from the London School of Economic and Political Science in 2009. She was admitted as an Advocate and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Singapore in 2011.

Her areas of practice include Contract, Criminal, Divorce, Wills and Probate, Child Custody, applications under the Mental Capacity Act and International Child Abduction Act.

She is also a legal writer in her spare time. She was involved in the following projects:

  • one of the authors for the LexisNexis Singapore Family Law Practice Guidance notes; in particular, notes relating to the divorce process, maintenance applications and nuptial agreements.
