Profile
Hang Wu is a walking encyclopedia of law. But it is his volumes of stories and his compelling narrative method of relaying complex legal arguments that make him a highly sought after collaborator and professor of Law, as well as an expert witness on various aspects of Singapore law in international litigation.

As a consultant, Hang Wu co-heads TSMP's Private Wealth and Trust Advisory practice with Jennifer Chia, advising and acting as Counsel on contentious matters involving property, trusts, equity, restitution as well as private wealth and trusts transactions. As a full-time professor at the School of Law, Singapore Management University, he brings the Law to life for students, painting vivid scenarios with stories and anecdotes.

He has also advised various members of Singapore's legal profession, statutory boards and relevant government ministries on complex legal issues pertaining to restitution, land, equity, trusts and charities. Hang Wu's specialist knowledge has led to him being appointed as an expert in Singapore trust law by the U.S. Department of Justice and instructed Counsel in matters before the Singapore Court of Appeal.
