He specialises in regulatory and competition investigations, and has extensive experience in these matters across various industries, including telecommunications, media, energy, transport and finance. He has advised local and overseas entities on all aspects of such investigations, such as dawn raids, leniency applications, enforcement actions, appeals and judicial review proceedings.

Complementary to his investigations practice, Voon Jiet also handles a broad spectrum of litigation and arbitration matters, both domestic and cross-border. These include civil disputes relating to banking and finance, commercial contracts, company law, insolvency, corporate fraud, tort, and employment. He has over a decade of experience representing multinational corporations, financial institutions, statutory boards and individuals at all levels of the Singapore Court, including as lead counsel in the High Court and Court of Appeal.

Voon Jiet is recognised by Who’s Who Legal for competition and regulatory investigations, and described by the guide as “an authority on the sophisticated legal issues that arise in such matters”. He is also recommended by The Legal 500: Asia Pacific (2018) where he was commended for being “quick and mak[ing] the effort to understand clients’ business structures and objectives”.

Voon Jiet obtained first-class honours from the National University of Singapore. He subsequently attended Harvard Law School, where he graduated with a Master of Laws degree.
