Russell graduated from the University of Liverpool with a Bachelor’s Degree with Honours in Law. Prior to getting called to the bar as an Advocate and Solicitor of Singapore, Russell has had experience litigating and advising in broad areas of legal practice including but not limited to Civil and Criminal Litigation, Family Litigation including Syariah Divorces. Russell also has a particularly keen interest in Family Litigation, especially in matters relating to Custody, Care and Control of Children.
Russell’s approach to litigation is “objective-based and client oriented”. Though Russell mainly practices in Family Litigation, his skills are transferrable into the Civil realm as he is able to understand his client’s objective while processing his client’s problems simultaneously. Thus, enabling him to advise and provide clients with practical, precise and cost-efficient solutions on Civil claims as well.
Unless absolutely necessary, Russell focuses on resolving matters without the need for litigation. However, if called to action, Russell does what is necessary in order to ensure that his client’s rights and interests are protected as he believes that the law is not meant to be a shield to cower under nor a weapon to oppress.
