Eng Beng Lee is managing partner of Southeast Asia's largest law firm, Rajah & Tann, and one of Singapore's leading lawyers. In 2013, he was identified in the fifth edition of Best Lawyers in Singapore and presented its “Lawyer of the Year” award for Insolvency and Reorganization. The last year saw the firm extend its regional footprint further by tying up with local firms in Myanmar and Cambodia. Lee says the firm's next step will be to strengthen its presence in Indonesia. Rajah & Tann won several awards during the year, including the Singapore National Law Firm of the Year award by UK-based Chambers, which noted that it "balances a top-notch litigation and arbitration practice with an increasingly strong offering for transactional work”. The Singapore office was also ranked in top five in the Asian Legal Business (ALB) Employer of Choice Survey 2013, and named Singapore Shipping Law Firm of the Year at the Asian Legal Business SE Asia Law Awards. Lee's published work in the fields of insolvency law and commercial law are often judicially cited in the Singapore courts.
