WongPartnership LLP is pleased to welcome Alessa Pang as a Partner of the Firm's Commercial & Corporate Disputes Practice. Alessa specialises in international arbitration and litigation. Her legal career has seen her handle a wide range of cross-border commercial disputes before international arbitral tribunals, as well as before the Singapore courts. Alessa has acted for clients in ad hoc and institutional arbitration proceedings under SIAC, ICC, LCIA, HKIAC, UNCITRAL and ICSID Rules.
Said Chou Sean Yu, Group Head of WongPartnership’s Litigation & Dispute Resolution Group, “We warmly welcome Alessa to the Firm. Alessa's experience and expertise further strengthens our Firm's position as one of the largest international arbitration practices in the region and we look forward to her contributions."
In addition to her international arbitration practice as counsel, Alessa also sits as an arbitrator in SIAC administered arbitrations. Her extensive experience extends to arbitration-related court proceedings that have seen her acting for clients in setting aside proceedings, applications for anti-suit injunctions and other court applications arising out of ongoing arbitration proceedings. Her significant work highlights include acting for an African parastatal body in Mauritius-seated SIAC arbitration proceedings and continuing to advise the client in the application to set aside the award before the Mauritius Supreme Court and in the subsequent appeal to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.
