Setia Law Launches to Become Singapore’s First Specialist Law Firm

Danny Ong and Yam Wern-Jhien, two lawyers from Rajah & Tann, have launched Setia Law, a new boutique law firm based in Singapore. The firm specializes in dispute resolution, fraud and financial crimes, and debt restructuring and insolvency, and has experienced lawyers who can handle complex cross-border cases involving intricate financial disputes, commercial fraud, international enforcement, and corporate distress situations. Setia Law is one of the few firms in Singapore that has expertise in handling complex cryptocurrency disputes.

The name “Setia” pays tribute to Southeast Asia’s heritage. It is derived from Sanskrit language to represent faithfulness to the law, loyalty to its people, and commitment to those who give their trust.

“Having established a leading disputes and crisis management practice in one of the major law firms in Asia, the time was right to drive this focus further by establishing Setia Law. We want to be a firm that stays true to providing dedicated service to our clients and to remain agile in being innovative and solutions-driven, to drive the best outcomes for our clients. We will do this by continuing to approach our mandates with creativity and commitment, whilst mentoring and developing some of the most talented legal minds in the industry,” said Danny Ong, Managing Director of Setia Law.

“In what’s expected to be another geopolitically and economically challenging year, we’ve observed a desire in clients for localised legal knowledge and technical specialty that’s applicable across multiple jurisdictions. We hope to be able to leverage our unique mix of specialism and our close relationships with leading professional services firms across the globe, to develop winning strategies for our clients,” Ong added.
