Hin Leong owner's family seeks to halt law firm from taking court role

Lim and his sister filed an application to restrain R&T from acting for the judicial managers of fleet manager Ocean Tankers.

Members of Singapore’s Lim family have asked a court to stop law firm Rajah & Tann Singapore LLP (R&T) from working for court-appointed supervisors to two companies in the Lim’s embattled oil trading empire, Evan Lim Chee Meng told Reuters.

Lim and his sister, Lim Huey Ching, filed an application to restrain R&T from acting for the judicial managers of fleet manager Ocean Tankers, Lim said in an email on 24 July. A similar application had been made in regard to oil trader Hin Leong Trading, he said.

They filed the application on behalf of Ocean Tankers and Hin Leong Trading. Lim and his sister are directors of both companies.

The actions are the latest in a series stemming from the collapse earlier this year of Hin Leong and Ocean Tankers, both of which were placed under court-appointed supervisors.
