Profile
"From time to time in the years to come, I hope you will be treated unfairly, so that you will come to know the value of justice."

These unconventional words of wisdom by US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts resonate well with Pei Ching, who had vowed to right the world’s wrongs, having experienced and witnessed her fair share of unfairness. The skilful litigator finds satisfaction and meaning in fighting for the vulnerable, such as when she helped the parents of an infant born with cerebral palsy due to medical negligence.

Pei Ching joined TSMP in 2018 with 10 years of legal experience under her belt at two large firms, also earning valuable client-side training when she was seconded to a bank to manage Madoff fraud-related litigation. Her insatiable curiosity means that she relishes working with a wide range of clients from individuals to restaurant chains and manufacturers, on a variety of matters involving employment, shareholders’ disputes, intellectual property, defamation and general corporate disputes. Their business is her business; Pei Ching invests an immense amount of time to thoroughly understand each and every client.

During her rare downtime, Pei Ching has a proclivity for heading outdoors, where she enjoys hiking, diving and snowboarding. In this area, she considers scaling Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, as her crowning achievement.

Sustainable Capitalism
TSMP Law Corporation, May 2020

Covid-19 is upending capitalism as we know it. Amid the pandemic, how can businesses rewrite their rule books so as to emerge stronger? Americans have allegedly outbid the French for masks “right on the tarmac” just as the goods were to be flown off to their destination. From Amazon to Rakuten to Carousell, traders exploited fears by price-gouging on masks and hand sanitisers...

Reading the Tea Leaves for 2020
TSMP Law Corporation, January 2020

Oh what a year it has been. 2019 has been a rollercoaster ride: Trump accelerates and then suddenly slams on the brakes on his tit-for-tat trade war with China. Hong Kong, hitherto the paradigm of pragmatism, lies smouldering as months of pro-democracy protests see no end. A Swedish girl (celebrating her 17th birthday just last Friday) becomes the unlikely face of environmentalism, shaming Boomers for doing nothing about climate change in front of the UN...

What's in a Name?
TSMP Law Corporation, September 2019

A rose, said Shakespeare, by any other name would smell as sweet. But while the Bard may know his flowers, he clearly was no expert on branding Apples.   Rodrigo Duterte, the Filipino president, would like to change his country’s moniker “because the Philippines is named after King Phillip”. He appears to be eager to distance his nation from its colonial past, the said monarch being a 16th century ruler of Spain...
