Singapore-headquartered law firm Helmsman has appointed Una Khng, a former district judge and assistant registrar at the city-state’s Supreme Court, as a director and head of its newly established commercial disputes practice group.

Khng was most recently a deputy divisional registrar of the Singapore International Commercial Court for more than three years since April 2019.

She was an integral member of the team behind the establishment of the Singapore International Commercial Court, and was also involved in the Court of Appeal Registry and the Secretariat of the Rules of Court Working Party. She started her career as a law clerk for justices in the Supreme Court in 2006 and later became a partner at a Singapore law firm Drew & Napier.

She brings her experience in dispute resolution and will be supported by a team of lawyers, drawing from their collective expertise in domestic and international disputes across a broad spectrum including claims in respect of complex financial products, banking and investment disputes, joint ventures and shareholder disputes, corporate governance disputes, breaches of trusts, contractual disputes, fraud and white-collar crime, misrepresentation and property disputes.
