Lawyer, advocate for cats: New LawSoc president Adrian Tan vows to remain vocal on public issues via social media
Lawyer Adrian Tan succeeds Senior Counsel Gregory Vijayendran as Law Society president on Jan 1.
The 55-year-old partner and head of intellectual property and technology at TSMP Law Corporation has been vocal on issues of public interest — from racism to vaccine mandates and discrimination against cats.
Mr Tan insists that he will continue to share his views on legal issues because he “believes in the curative powers of the law”.
Lawyers, he added, must also push back against misinformation, to correct misconceptions about the law and lawyers.
To keep younger lawyers inspired, Mr Tan said that LawSoc wants to explore how it can give young lawyers a greater say in their work and in the industry.
