The Firm

Braddell Brothers LLP is Singapore's third-oldest law practice, founded in 1883 by the sons of the first Attorney-General of Singapore.  Among our alumni are 5 former Supreme Court Judges / Judicial Commissioners (two of whom were Chief Justice), one former Minister for Law and 2 former Attorneys-General.  

We are today a boutique Litigation, Arbitration and Corporate practice, specialising in high-end, complex civil and commercial litigation, criminal litigation and international arbitrations (e.g. SIAC, ICC, UNCITRAL) in Singapore, Jakarta and the Asia-Pacific region.  Our Mr Kronenburg also sits as an arbitrator in international commercial disputes.  

Difficult and complex cases  

We punch well above our weight.  Difficult and complex cases are our mainstay.  Our lawyers have experience representing both private clients and corporations alike, in high-stakes and difficult cases ordinarily regarded as the private reserve of Singapore’s largest law firms and specialist dispute resolution practices.  We have expertise in Mareva (freezing) and other injunctions.  We are often referred work by Singapore’s largest dispute resolution firms when they cannot act due to a conflict of interests.  

International Reach  

We also work closely with a variety of international firms, particularly in New York, Chicago, London, Hong Kong and Jakarta. We have also, in appropriate cases, instructed Queen’s Counsel to provide opinions, as well as to appear on an ad-hoc basis in the Singapore courts on highly sensitive and complex disputes.  

Our Civil / Commercial Disputes practice handles commercial & contract litigation, international & domestic arbitration, corporate & shareholders' disputes, corporate insolvency & restructuring, medical negligence, banking & financial services litigation, employment disputes and complex / cross-border matrimonial and custody disputes. We also act for the Singapore Medical Council in in professional disciplinary hearings.   

Our Corporate & Commercial practice handles general corporate work as well as advisory, regulatory and compliance work for companies, charities, societies and NGOs.  

Our Criminal Law practice handles commercial offences (e.g. under the Prevention of Corruption Act, Securities & Futures Act and Computer Misuse Act), major crimes (e.g. under the Penal Code, Kidnapping Act, Misuse of Drugs Act) as well as capital cases.  Our lawyers have also acted for detainees under the Internal Security Act and in courts-martial pursuant to the Singapore Armed Forces Act and Enlistment Act.  We have also advised on extradition and anti-money-laundering measures.
