The Guest-of-Honour for the event was Attorney General Mr Lucien Wong, who graced the occasion with his presence together with our esteemed panel of judges for this year’s CLO Awards. Notable Sponsors for the event included PwC, DLA Piper, Drew and Napier as well as Forte Law.
The winner from the MNC category was swept away by Mr Antony Lee from HSBC, followed by Ms Ginney Lim from SPH who took the top spot for the Singapore Business category. Special recognitions in the Public Sector category were also handed out to Ms Diane Fletcher from NUS, Ms Tan Siew Huay from CAAS and Mr Tan Sze Yao from MOH.
SCCA's Co-Presidents Daniel Choo and Renita Sophia Crasta jointly stated that ''We are most pleased to recognise the amazing efforts of our fellow legal counsels across the various industries.
