CEO, Adsan Law
A commercial and civil litigation specialist, Susan Peh has made enormous strides with Adsan Law, the firm she co-founded, but nearly became a professional musician instead
Susan Peh is chief executive of Adsan Law, a firm that was re-branded from Yeo-Leong & Peh, the practice she started with her husband in 1987. Peh notably steered Adsan Law to the accolade of Best Law Firm in the charities, non-profit organisations and pro bono work category at the inaugural Singapore’s Best Law Firms 2021 ranking. The practice regularly provides pro bono services to several charities, advising them on topics such as charity law, compliance and restructuring.
Peh graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1986, and was admitted as an advocate and solicitor of the Supreme Court a year later. Her areas of specialisation include banking litigation and insolvency; she also advises financial institutions on issues such as bank documentation, product development, risk management, fraud and compliance. At Adsan Law, Peh also manages the Private Clients Practice Group, with experience in family law, matrimonial disputes, estate and trust planning.
Peh loves music, and is the vice-chair and a founding director of the Jazz Association (Singapore). She also sits on the board of the Singapore Chinese Orchestra, is a director of Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital and serves as a mentor to the Young Women’s Leadership Connection.
