Wayne Siang Chin Fong is one of the founding partners of Messrs. Wayne Siang, Kai & Co.
Wayne graduated with a law degree from University Of London in 2016, and passed his Certificate In Legal Practice as top 2% scorer in 2017.
Before deciding that his career should be in civil litigation, Wayne had the opportunity to learn to be a conveyancing lawyer as a pupil. However, halfway through his pupillage, he had already decided that conveyancing is unsuitable for him and he took a stand to restart all over as a pupil in the chamber of Messrs Kheng Hoe, under the guidance of Mr Chan Kheng Hoe, thereby picking up his knowledge in construction law and litigation.
Even though he was mainly handling construction disputes then, Wayne’s resourcefulness gave to his ability to handle disputes of different natures now. Currently, his primary area of focus is construction, employment, and corporate disputes.
