RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s Managing Partner Tan Chong Huat shared his vision and thoughts with Asian Legal Business (ALB)

RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s Managing Partner Tan Chong Huat shared his vision and thoughts with Asian Legal Business (ALB) on the Firm’s evolution and progressive growth. Since RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s inception in May 2011, Chong Huat commented that there are now 12 companies in the RHT Group of Companies. This offered clients a suite of professional services under one roof, something that has not been seen in Singapore. Each of the 12 companies are managed by professionals and is run independently of the law firm. Chong Huat also announced plans to list its professional services arm, RHT Holdings, the Leading Professional Services Group in Asia, on the Singapore Exchange Catalist Board scheduled for Q1 2016 or earlier. RHT Holdings is the holding company for four leading professional services companies: RHT Capital, RHT Corporate Advisory, RHT Compliance Solutions and RHT Management Services. Chong Huat added that as clients are looking beyond Singapore for business opportunities, the law firm’s establishment of the ASEAN Plus Group (APG) was imperative. The APG firms provides clients seamless access to responsive and quality legal services in the ASEAN+ jurisdictions, with over 750 lawyers in eight countries - Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Philippines and South Korea. The Firm’s membership with the Taylor Wessing network also allowed clients access to Europe, the Middle East and North America. Chong Huat attributed the achievement of RHTLaw Taylor Wessing and the RHT Group of Companies to the industrious and passionate leadership who have led their respective teams to excellence. The full article can be found in the April 2015 edition of the ALB.

In Memoriam of our late Senior Partner Subhas Anandan, by RHTLaw Taylor Wessing Chairman Professor Walter Woon SC

In an article written for the Law Gazette, the official publication of The Law Society of Singapore, RHTLaw Taylor Wessing Chairman Professor Walter Woon SC pays tribute to the dedication and passion Mr Anandan encompassed as a criminal lawyer. Professor Woon describes how Mr Anandan’s efforts helped shape the landscape of criminal law in Singapore and how Mr Anandan saw hope in cases where others deemed hopeless, simply because he was a firm believer in second chances. The full story can be found in the March 2015 issue of the Law Gazette, the official publication of The Law Society of Singapore.
