I am a partner in our Intellectual Property & Technology group in Singapore and lead our ASEAN and Japan practice. With more than 35 years in practice I have developed a specialist focus on complex patent litigation and other contentious IP related cases.

Today I represent major pharmaceutical companies, software companies, computer and medical device manufacturers, well known trade mark owners, book publishers, international airlines, established hotel chains, as well as collection and advertising agencies. I also represent a number of our Japanese clients and have a very active Japan practice.

I am regularly engaged in complex patent litigation and other contentious IP-related cases, and have been involved in a number of high profile and precedent setting IP cases before the Singapore Court of Appeal and the Patent Office, as well as handling multi-jurisdictional IP litigation. I have been placed in the Legal 500 Hall of Fame for intellectual property in Singapore.

I have also written and presented many articles and papers across the spectrum of IP law. I am the author of 'Enforcing Injunctions', a co-contributor to 'Essays on Computer Law', and general editor of 'A Guide to Singapore Patent Law'. I also authored the Patent section of 'The Halsbury Law of Singapore' and the Singapore chapter on Patent Claim Interpretation.

You'll find me ranked as a leading intellectual property lawyer by Asia Pacific Legal 500, IAM Patent 1000, Chambers Asia Pacific and IPAsia. I am also a panel member of the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Centre, Asian Domain Name Dispute Resolution Centre. I am also a Certified Patent Valuation Analyst (CPVA).
