Simmons & Simmons has boosted its dispute resolution capability in Singapore with the hire of disputes partner Terence Seah from Stephenson Harwood’s Singapore alliance firm Virtus Law, where he was a partner.

Seah will be joined by Simmons & Simmons’ London construction and insurance disputes partner Steven Kaye, who is set to relocate to the UK firm’s Singapore’s office, in July this year. This will see the UK firm’s dispute resolution team in Singapore expand to four partners.

“These two partner moves represent a bold statement from the firm about its commitment to investing in Singapore and the wider region,” said Emily Monastiriotis, international head of dispute resolution at Simmons & Simmons. “Terence and Steven are two outstanding partners who will add great depth to our team and help to meet the growing demand for a wide range of disputes expertise, both domestically and internationally,” Monastiriotis added.

The Singapore-based litigator – who is dual qualified in the city-state and the UK – specialises in advising on commercial and financial disputes. Before his time at Virtus Law, he had practised as a partner at Singapore law firm Shook Lin & Bok after close to five years of working as a senior associate at Drew & Napier and WongPartnership.

Over the years, Seah has represented international corporations and financial institutions in major international and local disputes as well as investigations.

Simmons & Simmons’ disputes resolution team expansion efforts in Singapore come on the heels of the UK firm’s hire of Jeffrey Friedenberg from Angelo Gordon to head its private funds team in Hong Kong.
