Practice head(s):


DSC is a powerhouse. Clients appreciate their extensive experience with, and intimate knowledge of arbitration practice before, the SIAC. Opposing counsel was clearly no match to the advocacy skills of DSC.’

The entire team DSC team is highly impressive. I will no longer mention Mr Davinder Singh because, as you know, he stands next to no one when it comes to arbitration practice. Jaik Shankar is a star in his own right and is obviously on his way to join the ranks of Mr. Singh give it a few more years. All their associates are all diligent, but special mention must go to David Fong who was thorough and articulate in his verbal and written presentations before client and the SIAC, and was remarkably cool under immense pressure given the voluminous records of the case and the tight deadlines of the SIAC. David Fong will be up there, I can see that happening.

Davinder is an exceptional advocate and is supported by a very capable team.

Davinder is one of Singapore’s best advocates and has the ability to get to the essence of the issues and distill what is necessary and relevant to win a case.
