We’re proud to announce that Asian Legal Business (ALB) has recognised Directors Meryl Koh, Renu Menon, Paras Lalwani, Allister Tan and Alexander Lee in its inaugural Singapore Rising Stars 2022 list, making Drew the law firm with the most number of lawyers named.

Nominees were selected through a meticulous process based on their quality of work and recommendations from their clients and colleagues.

Clients commended Allister for his “brilliant legal mind” and for being “an extremely persuasive advocate”. He is also described as “not only an excellent legal advisor but also a savvy negotiator with a good understanding of both commercial as well as insurance requirements.
