Marshall Lim


Marshall is an experienced and respected legal practitioner in the field of civil, commercial, and criminal litigation practice. He trained at one of the Big Four law firms before forging an eight-year career with the Criminal Justice Division of the Attorney-General’s Chambers. In his return to private practice, he built a multi-disciplinary practice including commercial litigation, fraud and asset recovery work and criminal defence. He was involved in multi-million-dollar lawsuits, representing several international companies and their directors. He was also instructed to assist a foreign corporate entity who lost significant sums of money through fraud, and successfully secured, via a Mareva injunction, the defrauded monies which had been dissipated across multiple jurisdictions, and the service of process in a jurisdiction overseas.

Marshall is also a highly sought-after criminal defence lawyer and is regularly instructed by individuals and corporations seeking legal representation in a wide range of offences, including regulatory infringements, at both trial and appellate levels. Marshall has a notable track record of helping clients avoid court prosecution by assisting them with comprehensive pre-charging representations to the Attorney-General’s Chambers and enforcement agencies such as the Singapore Police Force, Central Narcotics Bureau, Corrupt Practices and Investigation Bureau and Commercial Affairs Department, amongst others. He is also appointed by the Ministry of Defence to the MINDEF Pro Bono Panel where he represents servicemen charged in military court on a pro bono basis.

Regardless of the type of case, Marshall will mount an incisive assault or an indefatigable defence on behalf of his clients, and in both English and Mandarin.

Marshall also participates in regular teaching and speaking engagements. He is a guest trainer for the SAF Defending Officer’s Course and SAF Advanced Defending Officer’s Course and faculty member for the Criminal Litigation Practice module of the Preparatory Course Leading to Part B of the Singapore Bar Examinations. He also regularly delivers legal talks organized by the Law Society Pro Bono Services.
