After another strong year, Abrahams Davidson & Co has maintained as its Tier 1 position in our Brunei table.

Taking the lead is partner Bernard Tan, who is active in financial and corporate practices. The corporate and commercial practices at the firm, alongside banking, property development and securities and funds are regarded as the firm’s core practices.

Other significant figures in the firm are Suan Chin, Nor Suhaila and James Chiew who work across sectors from corporate banking to Islamic finance.

Deal highlights include work for The Islamic Corporation for the Development of the Private Sector on a proposed investment in the country. It acted on the sale of UOB Bank’s retail banking business in Brunei to Baiduri Bank Berhad.

The firm also acted as local counsel for Ireland-based credit card processor Elavon advising on the regulatory aspects of its provision of credit and debit card processing facilities to an airline domiciled in Brunei.
