Hanyi was called to the Singapore Bar in 2015 – but was immediately thrown into the commercial world where he worked for one of the largest international companies in the oil and gas industry. There, he saw the inner workings of the business, from sealing revenue opportunities to cutting cost centres, all the while honing his eye for and imagination of practical legal solutions. Upon returning to legal practice, Hanyi continued and continues to hone that commercial appreciation and versatility in his work.
In respect of commercial dispute resolution, litigation and arbitration matters, he has done work in complex construction arbitrations in India and Singapore; Security of Payment Act adjudications; disputes with total sums amounting to S$67 million in the Singapore High Court; cross-border stay of proceedings and injunctive interlocutory applications; as well as probate, tax and criminal matters. Hanyi has often helped clients fight to settle, has already accrued much experience in SMC mediations, and has even had multiple cross-border pre-suit negotiations in Houston and Brunei.
In respect of general corporate and advisory work, he has assisted clients with various forms of mergers & acquisitions (including due diligence, and sale and purchase agreements for shares or business units); consortium or joint venture agreements; and settlement agreements.
