    Dear Sirs, it's time to make a change.

    Dear Sirs, it's time to make a change.

    Let’s talk about it! Welcome to our new podcast series where we have short conversations with our guests on the latest trending law topics here in Singapore and around the world.

    Is it time to do away with “Dear Sirs”? The Singapore legal industry has certainly seen more female practitioners today than before. We can do better by not addressing and grouping all female practitioners into a standardised template of “Dear Sirs”. Shouldn’t this be the moment to act upon the principles of inclusivity and gender equality by addressing both male and female professionals respectfully? In this episode, we discuss the possibility of introducing a change like this to improve workplace inclusivity.  

    Our special guest is Marianne Marchesi, Founder and Principal Lawyer of Legalite - a new kind of law firm that aims to simplify legal services. She was also awarded Sole Practitioner of the Year at the Lawyer’s Weekly Australian Law Awards, and more recently, she won Partner of the Year (SME) in the 2019 Lawyer's Weekly Women in Law Awards.

    Divorce, no longer a blame game?

    Let’s talk about it! Welcome to our new podcast series where we have short conversations with our guests on the latest trending law topics here in Singapore and around the world.

    Singapore is in discussion to adopt a no-fault divorce principle. Will this help to make divorce processes less hostile between parties? With the UK implementing something similar this year, we hear it from Sonny’s perspective on this new law. Do these changes affect British expats in Singapore? Can it take away the blame element?

    Our first special guest is Sonny Patel, a qualified English solicitor with 15 years post-qualification experience and Partner and Head of the Singapore office of Expatriate Law. Sonny currently acts for British expatriates and conducts their family proceedings through the English courts.
