Dispute Resolution

While not a core focus of Consigclear, our founder has handled a range of contentious disputes on behalf of clients, including appearing in various Singapore courts and tribunals ranging from the Court of Appeal, the High Court, the State Courts, the Trade Mark Registry, the Singapore Mediation Centre, to the Strata Titles Board, in both civil and criminal matters. He has also overseen litigation, mediation and arbitration in territories outside of Singapore. We believe that this experience helps us in spotting potential issues in drafting agreements, as well as in managing relationship bumps later.
