Zack focuses on construction law, with a particular emphasis on Infrastructure projects such as railway projects. 

His area of practice includes both contentious and non-contentious matters, covering pre-contract negotiation, preparation of contracts, project advisory work and dispute resolution, namely litigation, arbitration and statutory adjudication. 

He has represented clients in disputes that involved the construction of commuter stations, a blast furnace complex, a shopping gallery, mixed development projects and the like and the supply of chilled water. Aside from that, Zack is also experienced in drafting and reviewing different types of agreements such as construction contracts, logistics service agreements and consultancy services agreements. 

In 2018-2019, Zack was involved in drafting and negotiating the contracts converting the then-existing Project Delivery Partner (PDP) models for both the Light Rail Transit 3 (LRT3) and the Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit 2 (MRT 2) Projects into Turnkey Contractor models.

In addition, he has also been involved in a cross-border railway project where he advised the asset owner and operator of the pending Johor Bahru – Singapore Rapid Transit System on the tender and award of all the packages for the construction of the system works and the system consultancy works. 

Other railway projects in which Zack was involved include the Kuala Lumpur Monorail Fleet Expansion project and the Gemas-Johor Bahru electrified double tracking railway project. 

As Zack is fluent in Mandarin, he also advises and represents various clients from China such as developers, contractors, oil and gas companies and tyre manufacturers on both contentious and non-contentious matters. 

In the 2023 edition of the IFLR1000 Asia Pacific, a publication that is called “the guide to the world’s leading financial and corporate law firms and lawyers”, Zack was recognised as a Rising Star Partner in the area of Project Development: Infrastructure.
