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.
