Being charged with a criminal offence can be a harrowing, difficult, and confusing experience – and a good criminal defence lawyer makes all the difference. Our team strives to ensure our clients are informed of their rights and obligations throughout the criminal process – and maintains an exceptional track record in obtaining optimal outcomes for our clients.

If you are facing charges for criminal acts, our defence lawyers in Singapore can assist you with formulating complaints to the relevant authorities, and where necessary and appropriate, initiate private prosecutions and civil claims.

If the unfortunate event that you are under investigation or have been charged with a criminal offence, you should contact a defence lawyer as soon as possible. Should you choose to instruct us, we will ensure that a team of some of our best criminal lawyers with the appropriate experience in dealing with authorities is immediately assigned to the case to ensure that you receive prompt and proper representation. Our team includes former senior officers and investigators from the Singapore Police Force and the Commercial Affairs Department.

If you have been arrested, you should contact a criminal lawyer in Singapore immediately to receive legal advice on how to proceed. The police may hold you in custody for up to 48 hours, and must apply for an order from the Magistrate to hold you for a further period. If you are released from detention, you may be released on police bail to ensure you return to the police station or attend Court when required.


No matter what the situation, our team in Singapore will work with you to ensure that your rights are protected, and respected by the authorities.
