Our law practice, previously known as Thiru & Co, was established in 2008.
Building on the success of Thiru & Co, Trident Law was incorporated in 2013 with our Principal,
R. Thrumurgan (or Thiru, as he is commonly known), leading the practice.
Thiru was singled out for praise by Singapore’s highest court in the landmark case of the “Kadar” brothers. The Court of Appeal noted:
“Finally, we would like to acknowledge Mr Thrumurgan for his impassioned advocacy and the commendable conscientiousness with which he has conducted Ismil’s defence. He deserves credit for placing on the record of proceedings many of the facts we have referred to above.”
The Kadar case, described by the Court of Appeal as extraordinary, is one of the longest in Singapore’s history. Despite overwhelming odds and overwhelming evidence, Thiru persevered in fighting for his client, Ismil Bin Kadar, for 6 years until his client was acquitted of the murder conviction.
Driven by the very foundational principles which he had been commended for – tenacity, rigour and ingenuity – Thiru assembled a formidable legal team at Trident Law comprising like-minded and inspired lawyers. The firm now boasts a diverse practice area and continues to provide advice of the highest quality to its clients.
