Rajah & Tann Singapore’s Deputy Managing Partner Patrick Ang has been inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy, making him the first Singaporean and the fourth lawyer from Asia to be admitted to the prestigious organisation for leading bankruptcy and insolvency practitioners globally.

Mr Ang joined the 29th Class of Fellows at a ceremony last weekend in Washington DC. The American College of Bankruptcy recognises professionals from around the world who meet the highest professional qualifications and ethical standards in the area of bankruptcy and insolvency practice and education.

Membership is by invitation only and Mr Ang is among over 900 esteemed professionals who have been honoured since the College was formed in 1989 as an honorary public service association of bankruptcy and insolvency professionals. The College is the largest financial supporter of bankruptcy and insolvency-related pro bono legal service programmes in the United States. It also conducts educational programmes, sponsors the publication of scholarly reports, as well as maintains the National Bankruptcy Archives.

Mr Ang is considered one of the top 25 thought leaders globally for restructuring and insolvency by Who’s Who Legal, a UK-based leading publisher of legal directories known for its annual listings of global leaders in business laws. He has also received accolades from other publications such as Chambers Global, IFLR1000 and The Legal 500.

Mr Ang, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of Rajah & Tann Asia, has acted in some of the biggest corporate failures globally and in Singapore including Lehman Brothers, Sogo Department store, Nortel Networks, China Aviation Oil, Asia Pulp & Paper, and Swiber Holdings.

Rajah & Tann Singapore Managing Partner Lee Eng Beng SC said: “On behalf of everyone at Rajah & Tann, I congratulate Patrick for being made a Fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy. No one else deserves this honour more than him.

“I hope Patrick’s passion for the law, commitment to exemplary client service and dedication to uncompromising ethical standards, will inspire young lawyers everywhere. In an age of rapid change, they need to abide by such good old values if they are to reach the pinnacle of the profession like Patrick.”

Mr Ang said: “It is a rare honour to be invited to be a Fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy. I share the recognition with my clients and colleagues at Rajah & Tann who have been very supportive of me over the last two decades.

“I have devoted more than half my life to this practice area of bankruptcy and insolvency and it has been a most satisfying and exhilarating experience.”
