Before commencing his own legal practise, David was a partner in a mid-sized law firm, which was recognised by the Singapore Law Society as being one of Singapore’s top legal firms heavily involved in pro-bono legal matters. David has a wide range of legal experience, spanning both criminal and civil Litigation, and continues to contribute his time as a Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (CLAS) volunteer.
David leads the firm’s private client services practice, while his personal areas of expertise includes civil and criminal litigation, insurance claims, family law, wills and probate, and personal injury (including motor accident claims).
Complementing his legal practice, David is also an active entrepreneur and venture investor.
