Singapore: Indian-origin lawyer Davinder Singh has emerged as Singapore’s best dispute lawyer at an awards ceremony to size up the brightest legal talents in the region, a media report said.

The 58-year-old lawyer, who heads Singapore-based law firm Drew & Napier, was honored with the ‘Disputes Star of the Year’ award at the Asialaw Asia-Pacific (APAC) Dispute Resolution Awards on Thursday, The Straits Times reported on Friday. His firm also won the ‘Law Firm of the Year’ award at the ceremony. The firm was also adjudged the best in Singapore for domestic arbitration, the daily said.

Asialaw is a research organisation that has produced 20 annual editions of Asialaw profiles, which provides a guide to leading domestic and regional law firms in the Asia-Pacific region. The awards recognizes 12 practice areas across 14 countries in the Asia-Pacific region. “Each winner demonstrated his strengths in furthering and inspiring the growing field of dispute resolution around the region,” spokesperson for Asialaw Nickie Yeung was quoted as saying.

Singh was among eight lawyers from local and international law firms who were nominated for the award. One of his recent high-profile cases involved Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in a defamation suit against blogger Roy Ngerng.
