Osborne Clarke's Singapore office, OC Queen Street (OCQS), has been shortlisted for TMT Team of the Year at the inaugural Southeast Asian Legal Awards organised by The Legal 500. This event is set to be the largest and most prestigious awards for the legal industry in the region, with both general counsels and private practice lawyers recognised from each market across the region.
This recognition is preceded by OCQS's recent Legal 500 rankings, which were backed up with client testimonials such as “(OC Queen Street) are the go-to lawyers with your new digital business models. In fintech, they are probably the only two-in-one lawyers in the industry who excel in both financial services and the business of technology. Osborne Clarke’s payment services department is renowned.”
The rankings also remarked on Managing Director Chia-Ling Koh’s expertise as a “leader of a solid pack of digital business lawyers. You should involve him early in your projects. He can help you strategize and not many lawyers can value add in this way." Another client said: “No other senior lawyer in Singapore is as knowledgeable as Chia-Ling Koh in the business of new technology in particular fintech, AI, blockchain and cyber security.” These testimonials are validation of OCQS's commitment to providing value added services that are bespoke to its clients' needs.
In addition to The Legal 500, OCQS has also been ranked in Chambers Fintech 2020 with significant praise for its “well known" and "strong fintech practice." The directory said: "The digital payments space is a noted strength, in which field the firm counts global technology companies and large platform style e-commerce companies among its clients.” Chia-Ling is recognised as having “mastery of both regulatory details and technological aspects."
OC Queen Street is a Singapore Law Practice with limited liability (Company Registration: 201618305M) (“LLC”). The LLC is an independently owned and managed Singapore Law Practice and is also a member of Osborne Clarke’s international legal practice.
