SINGAPORE: Justice Andrew Ang will retire as High Court Judge on Wednesday, after a decade of distinguished service.

The Supreme Court said during his judicial tenure from 2004 to 2014, Justice Ang served on several committees and boards and held appointments as the chairman of the Singapore Mediation Centre and of the Legal Heritage Committee, and as the vice-chairman of the Law Reform Committee.

Justice Ang was also a member of the National University of Singapore's Faculty of Law Advisory Board.

"I congratulate Andrew on a remarkable career in the law" said Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon.

"Over the course of 43 years, he has been an academic, a private practitioner and a Judge of the Supreme Court.

“When he was appointed to the Bench, he brought with him the experience of three decades of practice. By then he was one of the country's leading corporate and tax lawyers."

Chief Justice Menon added that it had been a pleasure to work with Justice Ang who was described as "generous" and with a warm spirit with which he approached his work and interacted with his fellow Judges and staff of the court.

Remembering his time on the Bench as "a truly enriching and satisfying experience" Justice Ang said, “It has been particularly fulfilling on the occasions when I could make the difference."
