Mediation Profile

Aloysius is currently heading the Mediation Unit of the holding company of Singapore's public healthcare institutions. He is accredited as a mediator and conflict management trainer by both the Singapore Mediation Centre and the Primary Dispute Resolution Centre. Prior to the most recent appointment, Aloysius was the General Counsel of Singapore's newest public university and he has extensive experience resolving corporate disputes of diverse natures. Aloysius is the recipient of the prestigious National University of Singapore Research Scholarship for his Masters Thesis on, "Developing a Framework for Mediation Advocacy in Singapore". He was also a member of the IMI Taskforce on Mediation Advocacy.

As General Counsel, Aloysius led numerous corporate negotiations and facilitated the amicable resolution of disputes over diverse subject matter including employment, construction, property, finance, breach of contract, partnership, research collaboration, and insurance. Over the course of his tenure, no legal suits were launched by or against the company even while it grew rapidly from an entity with only S$10 million in assets to over S$500 million in just over 3 years.

Aloysius adopts a listen-and-collaborate-first approach in dealing with his clients and negotiating partners. As a trained lawyer, he is aware that litigation may be a real recourse to resolve a dispute but, to avoid unnecessary emotional and financial expense for his client, it is always a last resort. Aloysius is sensitive and respectful of the stress and difficulties that parties may already have gone through before having approached him. The first priority for him hence is to fully understand the underlying concerns of all involved and to use his training and experience to find a mutually advantageous solution. A strong advocate for mediation ethics, Aloysius holds himself up to the highest standards of professional integrity and skill in practice and works closely with the mediator and fellow mediation advocate(s) during a mediation to ensure that the parties' interests are safeguarded. In this way, he aims to maximise the potential benefits of the mediation process, not just in quickly achieving a confidential solution, but also in restoring relationships and equipping parties to resolve future conflicts on their own.
