I am a partner in the Singapore Dispute Resolution team, specialising in commercial dispute resolution, and contentious regulatory and investigation matters.
I am a Singapore and English qualified lawyer who handles a broad range of complex commercial litigation and arbitration, specialising in cross-border disputes involving parties from different countries. I also advise on contentious regulatory issues, including data privacy, competition, market misconduct and corruption legislation.
I believe that it is important to combine legal proficiency with a practical approach to secure the best commercial outcome. Effective and strategic use of dispute resolution processes can significantly reduce an organisation's business risks. Early and careful management of an investigation can minimise regulatory risks. I advise clients in a broad range of sectors including: banking and FS, financial investors, telecommunications, information technology, consumer goods, energy, oil & gas, and shipping & maritime, healthcare, logistics, infrastructure & mining, entertainment & media, aircraft leasing, and leisure & travel.
Prior to joining Bird & Bird in 2020, I spearheaded the Singapore Tech Dispute & Regulatory practice at a Magic Circle firm which was developed to a sizeable practice, ranging from tech disputes and investigations to advising on cyber crisis handling and data privacy.
Technology, like law, can bring about huge benefits when responsibly deployed.
I have been appointed to panels of arbitrators at various leading arbitral institutions, including the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), where I serve on the Young SIAC Committee and Users' Council.
I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and a mediator accredited by the Singapore Mediation Centre. I serve on the Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee, and Data and Cybersecurity Committees of the Singapore Law Society, where I also serve as a member of its Inquiry Panel.
