Who's Who Legal Investigations: Lawyers

Davinder Singh is the CEO of Drew & Napier LLC.  He was among the first to be appointed senior counsel in 1997 by the Supreme Court of Singapore.

Davinder has over 30 years of experience as a commercial lawyer and advocate. He has litigated cases in almost every area of the law. He also has an active international arbitration practice.

At the Chambers Asia-Pacific Awards 2014, Davinder was the only Singapore lawyer to win the ‘Outstanding Contribution to the Legal Profession’ award. He has also been ranked by Chambers & Partners as the only 'Star Individual' in dispute resolution (Singapore), a category above Band 1, for seven consecutive years (2011 to 2017).

At the inaugural The Asian Lawyer Emerging Markets Awards 2014, Davinder was named ‘Disputes Lawyer of the Year’ for Southeast Asia and India. The publication described him as one “who is feared in Singapore as the city’s most powerful litigator”.

He was also named ‘Disputes Star of the Year – Singapore’ at the inaugural Asialaw Asia-Pacific Awards 2015.

According to Chambers’ researchers, he is regarded by market sources as “[a] formidable advocate who is widely acknowledged as ‘the best litigator in Singapore’”. Clients said, "The ‘Davinder factor’ puts this practice in a different league. [He] is prized for his ‘unique ability to grasp issues, including those which are not legally related, and to cross-examine with authority’."  

Davinder is the chairman of the board of directors of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC). He is a vice-chairman of the Paris-based ICC commission on corporate responsibility and anti-corruption. He also sits on various boards.

WWL says: Davinder Singh is an internationally renowned practitioner known for his longstanding excellence in cross-border investigations.
