Glenn G. Cheng
Partner
Mr. Cheng is an international engineering and construction law specialist. His practice is unique and offers a hybrid range of front-end transactional and back-end disputes service disciplines. Mr. Cheng’s primary focus is in the fields of oil and gas, civil and marine engineering, and on/offshore infrastructure relating to oil and gas projects. That said he also possesses a strong reputation in general engineering and building projects, as well as international commodities and commercial cases.

Mr. Cheng maintains currency in these sectors through a long-standing following of clients providing regular involvement in projects, contractual claims and formal dispute proceedings variously as advisor, counsel and arbitrator. On oil and gas projects, Mr. Cheng has acted for operators, rig owners, drilling contractors, JOA stakeholders, shipyards, designers and support services contractors throughout the South East Asia, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and South America. On other types of projects, Mr Cheng has advised clients based in (or with involvements in) South East Asia, China, Germany, India, the Middle East, and Russia. Notably he led the project legal team (including Singapore Co-Counsel) in advising and steering to financial completion, the PPP/DBOO project for the largest ever seawater desalination plant to be constructed and operated in Singapore. Mr Cheng was also a key member in the consulting consortium responsible for training, advising and assisting the Public Utilities Board of Singapore in upgrading its traditional procurement and contracting platforms into the (PPP)DBOO model for contract delivery. Today, he continues to play a key role in the firm's SEA/APAC capabilities in landmark PPP/EPC/EPCIC projects. In disputes, Mr. Cheng has experience appearing respectively as Counsel, Solicitor, Arbitrator, and Emergency Arbitrator in both international and domestic arbitrations, ranging from pure ad hoc references and (part) institutionalized ad hoc proceedings under UNCITRAL and SCMA rules; to proceedings under institutional rules including CIETAC, ICC, LCIA, SIA, and SIAC. At time of writing, he has presided over and determined disputes of accumulated values in excess of SGD$300 million.Back
