Rajah & Tann Singapore is the highest ranked Asian firm for Global Restructuring & Insolvency

Rajah & Tann Singapore has been ranked #18 in a global ranking of law firms for cross-border restructuring and insolvency, the only law firm from Singapore to make it to the top 20 in the widely-followed Global Restructuring Review (GRR) annual ranking.

In GRR’s latest ranking of 30 leading law firms by practice, Rajah & Tann Singapore jumped nine spots from #27 last year, overtaking other global firms. This is the third time the law firm has been featured in the GRR’s prestigious top 30 list.

GRR is a leading UK-based information service website providing cross-border restructuring and insolvency news. Honourees are selected based on the size of their top 10 most important cases during the research period as well as how multi-jurisdictional these cases were. It also takes into account the performances of the law firms in its sister publication, Who's Who Legal: Restructuring & Insolvency 2020.

Commenting on the awards, Patrick Ang, Managing Partner at Rajah & Tann Singapore, said: “We are honoured to be considered one of the top law firms in restructuring and insolvency globally by a reputable media such as GRR.

“We are seeing a surge in restructuring and insolvency cases in Singapore and worldwide as the Covid-19 pandemic deals a heavy blow to businesses big and small. I am grateful to my colleagues for rising to the occasion and serving our clients with the same discipline and standards of excellence despite the heavier workload. Most of all, I am grateful to our clients for the opportunities they have given us to guide them through the legal minefield in these difficult times.”

Rajah & Tann Singapore has been involved in nearly all the major insolvencies and restructurings in Singapore in recent years including the judicial management of Hin Leong, the restructuring of Hyflux, Swiber, Asia Pulp and Paper, and Bumi Resources.
