Tan Kok Peng

Bradell Brothers LLP

Kok Peng became the Principal Partner of Braddell Brothers in September 2009 and was one of the prime movers in the rejuvenation of Braddell Brothers. Kok Peng began his legal career at Drew & Napier as a pupil of one of Singapore's top Senior Counsel. He went on to practice at Drew & Napier LLC for the next five years, handling a variety of complex and challenging litigation matters. In 2002, he was seconded by Drew & Napier LLC to the London office of their then joint law venture partner - Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (one of the world's largest international law practices) - where he gained invaluable experience working on multi-jurisdictional disputes. In 2006, Kok Peng joined the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited as Legal Counsel advising their corporate trusts and loans agency, custody and trust/funds services as well as insurance businesses. Kok Peng also advised HSBC's Singapore branch on their outsourcing and corporate support requirements. Beyond providing legal advice to the business, Kok Peng was frequently called upon to assist in direct negotiations with key partners and clients. After about two years with HSBC, Kok Peng returned to private practice, initially as a Director with Tan Peng Chin LLC, before joining Braddell Brothers as a Principal Partner.

From his time as legal counsel to one of the world's leading financial institutions, Kok Peng has gained an insider's insight into the operations of the financial industry. He combines this with a keen understanding of complex financial products and structures to his advantage in handling financial services industry disputes. A top student in school, Kok Peng was consistently on the Dean's List at the Faculty of Law, National University of Singapore ("NUS") where he graduated with honours in 2000. Beyond textbooks, Kok Peng honed his legal craft in mooting competitions. In 1997, Kok Peng won the B.A. Mallal Moots as a Second Year undergraduate. He also represented NUS in the prestigious Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition in 1999 and the Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition in 2000. In the latter, he was awarded the Best Oralist award in the Asia-Pacific Regional Round of the competition held in Sydney, Australia.
