JUDY ANG

Judy Ang is a counsel of the Firm.

 

Judy graduated with a Bachelor of Laws degree from the London

School of Economic and Political Science in 2009. She was admitted

as an Advocate and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Singapore in

2012. Always keen on expanding her knowledge and skills to remain

relevant, Judy was recently admitted as a New York Attorney-at-Law

in 2016 and is also an Associate Mediator of the Singapore

Mediation Centre.

 

Her areas of practice include Contract, Criminal, Divorce, Wills and Probate, Child Custody, applications under the Mental Capacity Act and International Child Abduction Act. She has extensive litigation experience and has been involved in applications to the Court of Appeal on novel legal issues, contentious divorce cases with assets valued at more than $100 million and cross-border litigation. She is also one of the authors for the LexisNexis Singapore Family Law Practice Guidance notes; in particular, notes relating to the divorce process, maintenance applications and nuptial agreements. As a Mediator, she has successfully mediated disputes for both commercial and non-commercial matters. Her experience as a litigator helps ensure that any agreement reached at mediation is practical and enforceable.  

 

Throughout Judy’s law career, she has been very involved in pro bono work. She volunteered at the Singapore Family Justice Courts’ Legal Clinic and was a volunteer tutor for children residing at a Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations’ (SCWO) shelter. She was also a volunteer mediator for the Small Claims Tribunal.
