Senior Lawyer

"People in Wikborg Rein work hard and play hard"

Lesley Tan is a Senior Lawyer at Wikborg Rein's London office where she is part of the Shipping Offshore practice. Although she was born and raised in Singapore, her 8 years in London have made her an avid tea drinker. She kicks off her day with a nice cup of British favourite before she assists client with commercial litigations, dispute resolutions and arbitrations. 

– I spend my days working on financing documents, dealing with questions from clients or engaging in dispute resolutions. On days when I have a closing or delivery it can get very hectic with meetings and emails. But I rather enjoy the fast pace and I love adrenaline that comes along with knowing I need to get the deal closed, she says. 

Lesley often finds herself exploring the London restaurant scene with colleagues on her lunch break, or having drinks into the late hours of the evening. 

– People in Wikborg Rein work hard and play hard (like the Vikings!). If there are deals which need to be closed or cases which need to be won, people commit 100 percent to get the job done. But we know how to party too, and our company’s annual events are the best!
