Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Future Leaders - Partners

Yu-Jin Tay is a partner and head of Mayer Brown’s international arbitration practice in Singapore. He acts as counsel in commercial and investment disputes across a broad range of sectors including energy, natural resources, manufacturing, technology, construction and infrastructure, around the world including Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, Europe and the Americas. Since 2001, Yu-Jin has had experience of investment treaty arbitration and, since 2013, he has been designated to ICSID's panels of arbitrators and conciliators. Yu-Jin also sits regularly as arbitrator and has served as presiding, sole, or co-arbitrator in ICC, SIAC, LCIA, HKIAC, VIAC and ad hoc arbitrations.  He is vice president and fellow in the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators.

In 2011, Yu-Jin was featured in Global Arbitration Review’s global “45 under 45” ranking. He is listed annually as leading individual in legal directories such as the International Who’s Who of Commercial Arbitration (since 2010), Chambers Asia-Pacific, The Legal 500 Asia-Pacific (since 2008; in the Asia, Singapore, Korea and Indonesia chapters) and the Euromoney Guide to Experts in Commercial Arbitration (since 2006). Yu-Jin has been described by peers as “a specialist among specialists” (Chambers, South Korea, 2016), and “great at resolving complex problems and explaining them simply” (Chambers, Singapore, 2017). Clients describe him as their “first choice for arbitration matters... extremely sophisticated” (Chambers, South Korea, 2017), “logical and solution-oriented” (Chambers, Singapore, 2016) and a “very good, articulate advocate who is one of the faces of the next generation of Singaporean arbitration practitioners” (Chambers, Singapore, 2014). Currently based in Singapore, Yu-Jin has also worked in London, Paris and Washington DC.

WWL says: Yu-Jin Tay "is well established in the market" and receives praise for being "extremely knowledgeable, business savvy and attuned to client needs".
