Biography

Leonard Loh is a Senior Associate in the Litigation, Arbitration and Dispute Resolution Practice Group of Selvam LLC.

Leonard's main areas of practice are in financial, construction and family disputes. He has a wide spectrum of clients, ranging from multinational financial corporations and regional construction companies, to family businesses and high net worth individuals. He has represented such clients at all levels of the Singapore judicial system, as well as in domestic and international arbitrations, mediations, neutral evaluations and adjudications. Leonard’s deep interest and expertise in family disputes have also seen him acting for local and foreign individuals in heavily-contested divorce, guardianship, relocation, maintenance, personal protection order, adoption and estate administration applications, many of which involve cross-border and foreign law elements. On a number of these cases, he also worked with foreign counsel, child representatives and governmental agencies for the commissioning of specific reports. He has also contributed articles to the Singapore Law Gazette regarding probate and administration issues.

He graduated with 2nd Class Honours (Upper) from the National University of Singapore in 2014 and was admitted to the Singapore Bar in 2015. He was placed on the Director’s List in 2013, when on exchange with the Centre for Transnational Legal Studies in London, UK.
