Legal eagle Davinder Singh was named as Singapore’s best dispute lawyer at the inaugural Asialaw Asia-Pacific Dispute Resolution Awards 2015.
Drew & Napier, the Singapore-based law firm that he helms at the chief executive officer, took home two awards at the ceremony held on Sunday (Sept 24) in the republic.
Davinder received the “Disputes Star of the Year – Singapore” award while the firm won the award for the Singapore’s national law firm of the year and also the best domestic arbitration firm.
The 58 year-old lawyer had represented the late Lee Kuan Yew, the nation’s first prime minister, as well as his son and current prime minister Lee Hsien Loong, in the courtrooms.
He graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1982 and joined the Litigation Department of Drew & Napier thereafter. He was in the first batch of Senior Counsel appointed in 1997, according to his profile available at the firm’s website.
Davinder, who has been a commercial lawyer and advocate for over 30 years, was also a former Member of Parliament for the Bishan-Tao Payoh Group Representation Constituency from 1988 to 2006.
