In its 100-year history, law firm Shook Lin & Bok, which has produced two Chief Justices, has come to be a part of the Singapore story, having made many contributions in the past.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Indranee Rajah said at the celebration of its centenary that the firm has added something unique to the rich tapestry that is Singapore and this comes at a time when the Government is positioning the country for more growth opportunities.

"This is a firm with a sterling history," said Ms Indranee, who is also Second Minister for Finance and Education. "The firm's founders set high standards of integrity, quality, commitment, professionalism, mutual respect and collaboration - guiding principles which Shook Lin & Bok's lawyers continue to hold themselves to today," she said at the reception last Friday to mark the milestone.
