We are a full-service practice and well recognised for our work in dispute resolution. Our diverse partnership includes persons who have gone on to become Senior Counsel, Law Society Presidents, Supreme Court Judges and Members of Parliament.

TRC has established a reputation for integrity in the practice of law and the provision of high-quality legal services.

As a medium-sized practice, we are small and dextrous enough to provide a genuinely personalised service to our clients. At the same time, we have sufficient strength in depth through our collective experience and technical expertise to serve clients effectively in substantial litigation and non-litigation matters.

To meet our clients’ ever evolving needs, our lawyers keep ahead of the curve and continuously hone their specialist skills. We also maintain close links with law firms in Asia, North America and Europe through our membership of the law practice group, PLG International Lawyers. TRC’s clients have the advantage of ready access to international expertise with local knowledge.
