I am a partner in our Intellectual Property & Technology group in Singapore and lead our ASEAN and Japan practice. Across more than 30 years in practice I have developed a specialist focus on complex patent litigation and other contentious IP related cases.

Today I represent major software companies, computer manufacturers, well known trade mark owners, pharmaceutical companies, book publishers, international airlines and well known hotel chains, as well as collection agencies and advertising agencies. I also represent a number of our Japanese clients.

I am regularly engaged in complex patent litigation and other contentious IP-related cases, and have been involved in a number of high profile IP cases before the Singapore Court of Appeal, as well as handling multi-jurisdictional IP litigation.

Over the years, I have written and presented many articles and papers across the spectrum of IP law. I am the author of "Enforcing Injunctions", a co-contributor to "Essays on Computer Law", and general editor of "A Guide to Singapore Patent Law". I also authored the Patent section of "The Halsbury Law of Singapore" and the Singapore chapter on Patent Claim Interpretation.

You'll find me ranked as a leading intellectual property lawyer by Asia Pacific Legal 500, IAM Patent 1000 and Chambers Asia Pacific.
