   About Me

Cheow Hung is a founding director of Beacon Law Corporation with almost 2 decades of experience in private legal practice after graduating from the National University of Singapore. He has represented clients in a diverse range of civil and commercial disputes; including shareholders' and partnership disputes, employment disputes, defamation proceedings, construction disputes, tenancy disputes, banking disputes and tortious claims. Drawing from his rich experience in dispute resolution in different areas of law, he has been building an alternative practice area, recently coined "Dispute Avoidance" by some; where he works with clients to set up and structure the foundations of their businesses with a view to avoiding disputes as well as to ensure regulatory compliance, in effect, a Corporate Law practice geared towards dispute avoidance and prevention. Cheow Hung is particularly passionate about Criminal Law; as he believes every man, woman, transgender person, girl or boy deserves and needs legal representation when accused of a crime; one of the fundamental principles that is the bedrock of the Rule of Law. Last but not least, Cheow Hung also has considerable experience in Family Law, dealing with issues of divorce, custody and guardianship as well as care & control of children, maintenance and personal protection orders. He has also taught Family Law and Procedure as an adjunct lecturer at Temasek Polytechnic. Cheow Hung has also recently been honoured by the Law Society of Singapore with the Pro Bono Ambassador 2016/2017 Award in recognition of his contributions to the pro bono cause.
