Sean is recognised to be a rising star in his field, winning multiple commendations and accolades from clients and regional ranking publications. 

As part of his practice, Sean advises on a wide range of transactions and legal matters. This includes capital markets, securities and debt offerings, securities regulations, corporate finance, banking and finance, debt and corporate restructurings, and corporate advisory work. His practice includes pre-court corporate rescue situations and in-court restructuring and insolvency proceedings. He also regularly advises on major group restructuring projects involving multiple jurisdictions, including Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. 

Sean began his career in the financial services department of one of the largest law firm in Singapore. There, he developed his ability in general corporate and commercial practice, with a specialisation in the capital markets. He then joined a highly-regarded litigation practice in Singapore, where he acquired his proficiency in contentious matters. Marrying his corporate expertise and litigation capability, Sean developed a specialisation in corporate rescue situations with a highly-ranked boutique law firm specialising in insolvency and restructuring. He joined Aquinas Law Alliance as a partner in April 2021.
