(MEDIA RELEASE) Rajah & Tann Singapore's Patrick Ang Named One of Top 25 Lawyers Globally for Restructuring & Insolvency

SINGAPORE, 20 March 2017 – Rajah & Tann Singapore’s Deputy Managing Partner Patrick Ang has been named as one of the top 25 lawyers globally in the restructuring and insolvency practice. He is the only Singaporean and one of two lawyers from Asia to be recognised in the list of Who’s Who Legal (WWL) Thought Leaders.

WWL describes Mr Ang as continuing to garner praise for his truly “outstanding expertise” in contentious and non-contentious restructurings and insolvencies. He emerged tops in an extensive research into the restructuring and insolvency legal markets around the world that saw a listing of 568 lawyers from 47 jurisdictions.

Thought Leaders are individuals who have received the highest number of nominations from peers, corporate counsels, and other market sources which identify them as truly outstanding practitioners and the very best in their field.

WWL is a sister publication of Global Arbitration Review and Global Restructuring Review, under Law Business Research, an independent London-based publishing group, which provides research, analysis and reports on the international legal services marketplace. Subscribers include leading international corporations, government agencies, law firms and individual private practitioners.

Managing Partner Lee Eng Beng, SC said: “Patrick is the pre-eminent authority in insolvency and restructuring and have advised on many high profile cases in this practice area in Singapore and the region. This recognition comes as no surprise to those of us who have worked with him for many years. His expertise and experience have been key to Rajah & Tann’s dominance in restructuring and insolvency.”

Mr Ang said: “I am extremely honoured to be listed as one of the 25 Thought Leaders in restructuring and insolvency by WWL, and thankful to my clients and colleagues who have supported and encouraged me along the way. Together with my colleagues at Rajah & Tann, we are committed to providing clients with legal work of the highest quality.”

Some of the high-profile restructuring and insolvency cases led by Mr Ang include advising in the Asia Pacific restructuring of Nortel Networks as well as advising the liquidators of various Lehman Brothers entities in Asia, the Judicial Managers of Swiber Holdings Limited and Swiber Offshore Construction Pte Ltd, as well as the Interim Judicial Managers of Swissco Holdings Limited and Swissco Offshore (Pte) Ltd.
