Wee Swee Teow LLP (WST) is proud on our 111th anniversary to have made the list in the Straits Times’ index of best law firms in Singapore for 2023. The recognition is a testament to the trust the firm has earned for over more than a century.
The ST best law firms 2023 is the third edition of an annual survey jointly conducted by the national broadsheet and Germany-based market researcher Statista. This is the first time WST has participated in such a survey and our firm was recognized in six practice areas:
· Company & Commercial
· Family Law
· Inheritance & Succession
· Private Wealth Management
· Mergers & Acquisitions and Real Estate (Commercial Property, Construction, Funds)
WST’s participation this year was a conscious effort to raise the public profile of the firm for today’s generation. Managing partner Mr Lee Soo Chye said, “Over the years, we have always been quietly confident practising as a firm that is well respected by our peers and our clients. We have never strived for awards nor put ourselves out there to be recognised. We have only strived for excellence in our fields of expertise.”
He said, “When you talk to people in the older generations about Wee Swee Teow, many will say “oh they are a good conveyancing firm”. But we are more than that – we also have strong teams in the areas of collective sale, project development, corporate, family, construction, energy, regulatory, private clients and dispute resolution – and we want people to know that.
“That’s why we decided to participate in the survey this year and we are very happy to have done so. We are thankful that so many clients have supported us and have recognized the work we do.”
