SIAC Congratulates Former Deputy Chairman, Justice Sundaresh Menon, On His Appointment As Chief Justice Of The Supreme Court Of Singapore

4 September 2012

SIAC congratulates Justice Sundaresh Menon on his appointment to Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Singapore, a role he will take up on 6 November 2012.

Justice Menon has a long and close association with SIAC. He first served as a Director of SIAC from August 2003 to February 2006. Thereafter, he was appointed Deputy Chairman in February 2009, a position he held until October 2010 when he was appointed Attorney-General of Singapore. He is widely recognized as one of the foremost experts in litigation and arbitration in Singapore and has established a worldwide reputation for excellence. He previously also served for a year as a Judicial Commissioner in Singapore and held the position of Managing Partner of Rajah & Tann.

Justice Menon's contribution to SIAC has been outstanding. His vision and hard work helped to transform SIAC into one of the world's premier arbitration centres. He was involved in the crafting of SIAC's latest rules, and worked tirelessly to help develop Singapore as an international arbitration hub. As recognition of his standing among international arbitration professionals and contributions to international arbitration, Justice Menon was appointed to the ICCA (International Council for Commercial Arbitration) Governing Board in June this year and he delivered a thought provoking keynote address at the ICCA Singapore 2012 conference which was organised by SIAC in June.

We are grateful to have had Justice Menon's leadership and support through the years, and are delighted at his appointment to the nation's highest legal office.

His interest and contribution to thought leadership in international arbitration continues and he will be advancing his theories on the regulation of international arbitration at a joint event hosted by SIAC and Queen Mary School of International Arbitration, in London on Thursday 27th September.
