Joyce is a professional support lawyer, qualified in English law.  She obtained her LL.B (Hons) degree from the University of London in 2008 and was admitted as a Barrister (Middle Temple), England & Wales in 2009.  She joined Braddell Brothers later that year.

While Joyce is not admitted to practise Singapore law, she has – in her role as Executive Officer – rendered considerable assistance to our Partners in a wide variety of contentious cases, spanning international arbitration, commercial and contractual disputes, medical negligence, and highly complex matrimonial litigation.

She has also served as a tribunal secretary in international commercial arbitrations under the SIAC, UNCITRAL and VIAC (Vietnam International Arbitration Centre) Rules.

Among the notable cases that Joyce has assisted our Partners with, are the following :

  • An action brought by a Singapore plastic surgeon against his estranged wife and related parties for breaching his confidentiality by copying data from his notebook computer then deploying it in matrimonial proceedings against him – the case was settled amicably after the Singapore Court of Appeal upheld the interim injunction obtained by the client to prevent his wife from using the copied confidential information pending trial, and to deliver-up the copied data to the client’s solicitors.  This case saw the important English Court of Appeal decision in Imerman v Tchenguiz [2010] EWCA Civ 908 being considered for the first time, by the Singapore Court of Appeal.
  • The representation of an Indonesian millionaire in arguably Singapore’s largest family dispute in terms of matrimonial assets to-date.  The ex-wife obtained a Worldwide Mareva Injunction against the client’s assets which she claimed to be worth around S$93 million in Singapore and in excess of US$400 million worldwide.  She sought to be awarded 50% of those assets in the divorce.  She also filed a claim for maintenance in the sum of S$450,000 per month – believed to be the highest monthly maintenance claim that Singapore has seen.  On appeal, the High Court set aside the Mareva injunction and the case was settled amicably, on a global, confidential basis, in November 2011.
  • The representation of a Singapore businessman in protracted matrimonial proceedings spanning 8 years, heavily involving cross-border elements, including child relocation, jurisdictional disputes, anti-suit injunctions and the determination of the validity of an antenuptial agreement governed by the laws of New York.  The wife claimed maintenance and a division of assets allegedly worth S$150 million worldwide, contrary to the terms of the antenuptial agreement.  In May 2018, the Singapore High Court held the antenuptial agreement to be valid and ordered that it would govern the division of assets as between the parties as well as the wife’s maintenance.  This was the first known case of an antenuptial agreement (governed by foreign law) being effectively enforced in toto in Singapore matrimonial proceedings.
