Dan Tan Law is a San Francisco-based boutique headed by–you guessed it–Dan Tan. Leaving behind his former firm of Latham & Watkins, Tan set up his own shop, focusing exclusively on international arbitration, in New York in 2011 before migrating west the following year. Tan's West Coast presence affords him easier access to Asia, particularly Singapore, where Tan enjoys a robust following for his acumen and knowledge of local law. "Dan Tan is well known in Asian international arbitration matters," confirms a New York-based international arbitration peer. Another, based in Singapore, where Tan attends to much of his work, advises, "Check the Global Arbitration Review – you will see that Dan has got a great hand in several of these big-time cases." In one such matter, Tan attended to a dispute arising out of water product distribution agreement. This was a New York seated arbitration that was heard in Singapore, in which Tan obtained complete defense against all claims, which totaled over $35 million. Tan represented US and Canadian defendants against Singapore claimants. In an even more noteworthy matter, Tan represented a confidential party in a dispute involving monetary payments and share of revenue stemming from a contract to build what was then the world's longest oil and gas pipeline. This was an extremely high-value case, with claims of over $500 million, against a state-owned entity of another Southeast Asian country.
