Michelle is a partner at our Singapore office. Her core areas of specialisation are energy, shipping and international trade.
  • Profile
  • Services
Michelle has experience acting for banks in finance litigation matters, ship yards in complex ship and rig building disputes, oil majors, wind farms, national airlines and other multi-national corporations. She also regularly provides risk management and litigation advice on corporate and ship finance matters. Her experience in disputes is beneficial in negotiating, drafting and advising on potential risks in commercial contracts on shipbuilding, ship charters, ship sale and purchase, offshore contracts and commodities contracts.

Being dual-qualified in both Singapore and in England and Wales has placed her well to advise on international disputes as well acting in Singapore-based arbitrations. She is knowledgeable in the law, but is always mindful to adopt a commercial and sensible approach in finding solutions for clients. Having specialised since the inception of her career, she is recognised by the shipping market as credible and committed to the industry.

Michelle is regularly invited to speak at industry seminars, sit on panel discussions and assist in events to boost Singapore's reputation as a maritime hub.
