EXPERIENCED COMMERCIAL LITIGATION & CORPORATE LAWYER

Walter graduated from NUS Law in 2001 and was called to the Singapore Bar in 2002. He started practice at Drew & Napier LLC under Mr. Davinder Singh S.C. after being called to the bar and has several years of high-level complex dispute resolution experience.

His extensive dispute resolution experience includes:

  • Assisting Senior Counsel in representing a large Indonesian conglomerate in the then largest debt restructuring in the world (estimated US$16 billion) and related US securities action, bondholders litigation and class action litigation in multiple jurisdictions including Indonesia, Singapore, New York, California, various other parts of the US, Canada and Bermuda;

  • Assisting counsel in representing clients in a variety of contentious intellectual property cases including:
    • Trademark infringement

    • Passing Off
    • Patent infringement
  • Representing clients on both sides of employer-employee disputes;
  • A wide variety of contentious work involving claims based on the Consumer Protection Act, landlord and tenant disputes, and aviation services; and
  • Providing advice and assisting in out of court settlements of several claims including a minority shareholders’ oppression claim.

Walter’s extensive experience in high-level litigation and his work in corporate and commercial law has given him a well-rounded perspective of what agreements should entail. This led him to focus his practice on assisting companies in Singapore and around the region with vetting and preparing agreements which further and protect their interests.

Walter’s team also provides fixed fees for vetting and drafting of agreements, including but not limited to:

  • Sale and Purchase of Shares/ Property/ Goods;
  • Shareholder/ Stakeholder Agreements;
  • Termination Agreements;
  • Employment Agreements;
  • Employment Policies & Handbooks/ Guidelines;
  • PDPA and Privacy Policies;
  • Terms & Conditions for Websites;
  • Letters and Memorandums of Understanding;
  • Letters of Undertaking;
  • IOUs
  • Settlement Agreements.

Walter took a break from the legal profession for several years, working at high levels in non-profit organizations in the United States, before resuming practice with Drew & Napier and thereafter at a boutique law firm specialising in corporate and commercial law in Singapore with a focus on cross-border transactions out of Indonesia. His experiences and practice have given him an acute sense of the commercial realities of doing business and he uses this knowledge to assist his clients.

Walter assisted us in reviewing and updating our company’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Service for our website. I was very pleased with his service, recommendations, response time and the quality of our discussions. He also went the extra mile of reviewing another document we were working with on short notice. The advice he gave was clear and trustworthy.

SS,

Walter assisted me in applying for Grant of Probate in a factually complicated family situation involving my deceased mother. He was always quick to respond and insightful in his conversations with me. I would recommend him for his client-centric approach.

LM,

Walter advised me in my case against my ex-employer. I was upset about how I had been treated by my ex-employer but he was professional and caring in his demeanour and gave me very accurate advice. The outcome was exactly as he predicted and I am grateful for his help.

Ms J,

Walter advised and represented me in the resolution of a dispute between me and another shareholder in two separate companies. This was also a case that involved elements of minority oppression. Together with a partner at the firm, Walter handled all the negotiations and drafting of a settlement agreement that allowed us to move on with our lives. I would recommend him for your all your legal needs.

NN,
