I am a disputes lawyer with strong experience in commercial, criminal and public interest litigation. 

I graduated with first class honours from the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2014.

Since graduation, I have been with a boutique litigation practice, Eugene Thuraisingam LLP (ET LLP). As a trainee and subsequently junior lawyer in a boutique practice, I have from the start played an active leadership role in the carriage of complex disputes. I have also amassed considerable experience arguing cases in the High Court and the State Courts. 

When interacting with clients, I follow two basic principles. First, I am honest about whether a client’s (or potential client’s) case is strong or not. Secondly, I am candid about whether it is truly cost-sensible to engage a lawyer for a case, bearing in mind all the details of the case. 

I have long experience since my days as an NUS undergraduate contributing my legal expertise to the community. For instance, I was actively involved in research and drafting of legal arguments for the 2010-2014 challenge to the constitutionality of Section 377A of the Penal Code, which criminalises intimate conduct between men. More recently, I was one of the volunteer researchers for the book Same But Different: A Singapore LGBT Legal Guide For Couples And Families“. As with all other lawyers in ET LLP, I provide pro bono legal representation in criminal and public interest cases.

My matters of significance include the following: 

Civil and commercial disputes 

– UFM v UFN [2017] SGHCF 22: Represented an Indonesian divorcee in a successful application for permission to commence proceedings for division of Singapore matrimonial property, consequential upon a divorce decreed in Indonesia. 

– Ramesh s/o Krishnan v AXA Life Insurance Singapore Pte Ltd [2017] SGHC 197: Represented a former financial services director (“FSD”) in the assessment of damages stage of the FSD’s claim against a financial institution (“FI”). The High Court judge assessed damages at SGD 4.026 million. 

– Rohini d/o Balasubramaniam v Yeow Khim Whye Kelvin and another [2017] SGHC 149Represented a property agency in successfully defending a SGD 830,000 claim. The plaintiff had argued that the property agency should be legally responsible for the fraudulent acts of a rogue agent.

 Ramesh s/o Krishnan v AXA Life Insurance Singapore Pte Ltd [2016] SGCA 47 : Represented a former financial services director (“FSD”) in a successful appeal to the Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal agreed with us that the defendant, a financial institution (“FI”), had been negligent in the preparation of a reference check for the FSD, and this caused a prospective employer to decide not to proceed with hiring the FSD. GCGC

Criminal and public interest litigation 

– Ilechukwu Uchechukwu Chukwudi v Public Prosecutor [2017] SGCA 44: Represented an accused who had been convicted by the Court of Appeal in 2015 of drug trafficking, in successfully applying to the Court of Appeal to re-open its 2015 decision to convict the accused. 

– Liew Zheng Yang v Public Prosecutor [2017] SGHC 157: Represented the appellant in a successful appeal against his conviction by the District Court of an alleged conspiracy to traffic drugs to himself. 

– Attorney-General v Ting Choon Meng and another appeal [2017] 1 SLR 373: Represented the website, The Online Citizen, in successfully defending proceedings brought by the Government in the District Court, the High Court and the Court of Appeal.

Suang is very capable, hardworking & confident young Lawyer has risen very fast in his carrier.

His attitude, humbleness & shear commitment to his work have made him to stand out from others.

Hoe is an important & vital leader of Eugene’s Legal team who handled my defamation suit to success. His presence in the team had made a big difference as he was very sharp & quick in picking the areas of most concerned and provided the direction and sound advise.

He has proven himself that first class Honours graduate from University of Singapore is certainly a cream of the crop.

He is already a successful Lawyer with many achievements under his name and I have no doubts that he will go to a greater heights of his carrier very soon.

He needs no introduction as his talents and achievements will speak for him.
