Singapore’s Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon, during the opening of the Legal Year 2016, made mention of a possible accreditation to recognise lawyers who have achieved excellence in selected areas of specialisation including construction practitioners, as Singapore strives to export its expertise across the region. A committee led by Justice Quentin Loh is currently looking into the viability of implementing this for construction lawyers as a pilot project.
