Ryan Chu (‘Ryan’) heads the dispute resolution department of TCC Law. Ryan’s practice focuses on corporate and commercial disputes, including matters such as minority oppression claims, boardroom tussles, breach of fiduciary duties, derivative proceedings and winding-up under "just and equitable" grounds. He has also handled various contentious industrial relation / employment matters.

Prior to co-founding the firm, Ryan was a senior associate of a Tier 1 Legal 500 law firm specializing in corporate and commercial disputes. He has acted in several shareholders’ disputes involving high profile conglomerates and listed companies, which include successfully winding up a family company on the basis of boardroom deadlock and breakdown of relationships. He was also part of the Counsel team who successfully opposed a highly complex minority oppression claim under Section 346 of the Companies Act 2016 that was mounted by different classes of shareholders involving a wholly owned subsidiary of a listed company. Ryan was also the co-counsel who successfully opposed an application under Section 181 of the old Companies Act 1965 for leave to commence a statutory derivative action which is reported as Eow Fun Siew & Anor v Mutual Life [2017] 5 MLRH 270.

Beyond day to day work, Ryan is ever passionate about the law and writes about legal issues pertaining to the cases that he has previously handled. Ryan also has an Instagram page that seeks to provide insights and tips to young, aspiring practitioners in the legal industry.
