Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Future Leaders - Partners

Daryl Chew is a partner in Shearman & Sterling’s international arbitration group and the managing partner of the firm’s Singapore office.

Daryl has advised and represented clients in numerous arbitrations conducted under a wide range of arbitration rules (including ICC, LCIA, LMAA, HKIAC, SIAC and UNCITRAL rules), as well as in ad hoc proceedings. These matters have involved a wide range of applicable laws and venues, arising from energy (oil and gas, nuclear and renewables), construction (infrastructure, shipbuilding, power, industrial and petrochemical plants), M&A, joint venture, shareholder and general commercial disputes.

Daryl also sits as arbitrator. He has served as presiding arbitrator and sole arbitrator in SIAC and HKIAC arbitrations, as well as in ad hoc arbitrations.  He is a member of the HKIAC list of arbitrators, KLRCA panel of arbitrators and the SIAC Users Council.

Described by clients as “sharp”, “efficient” and “industrious and resourceful”, Daryl consistently features as a leading individual in all major professional directories, which have commended his “superb written advocacy”, “limitless appetite for hard work”, and recommended him for “consistently high-quality work”. He is noted for being “widely recognised in the market for valuably combining ‘good attention to detail and ability to grasp the important things’ with ‘a lot of arbitration experience in the Asia Pacific area’”.

Prior to joining Shearman & Sterling, Daryl Chew served as a justices’ law clerk at the Supreme Court of Singapore, clerking for the Chief Justice, justices of appeal and judges of the High Court.

A Singaporean national, Daryl is admitted in New York and Singapore. He speaks English and Mandarin.

WWL says: Daryl Chew is "one of the brightest" in the Asian market, with impressive expertise in handling commercial disputes.
