Top Litigation Lawyers in Singapore

Where can you find the top litigation lawyers in Singapore?

While it is true that Senior Counsel are experienced litigation lawyers, and that they are one of the best litigation lawyers, one must note that they are fairly expensive, with rates of S$1,000 per hour.

Senior Counsels also need to lead large teams so the aggregate hourly rate would be in the few thousands.

In the City Harvest Trial, it was reported that legal fees ran up to S$15 million.

The question you should be asking is not who is the top litigation lawyer in Singapore, but who is the most cost effective litigation lawyer in Singapore who can assist you in getting the results you want.

To assist you in the process, these are the questions which you should ask when engaging or changing your lawyers:

  • What is the fee estimate if we go to Trial?
  • What is your recommended strategy in approaching this dispute?
  • How long will the litigation proceedings take?
  • Who will be the point of contact in the legal team?
  • How often will I be updated of developments?
  • Will my approval be sought before you agree to or consent to anything from the other side?
  • Are your lawyers contactable through mobile phone?
  • Do your lawyers work after office hours, on weekends and on public holidays?
  • How do you manage my legal costs so that they remain low?
  • How much do I need to deposit with you?
  • If I cannot afford to pay the bill, is there an instalment payment plan?
