Profile
A litigator specialising in court disputes concerning technology, intellectual property, real estate and shareholder oppression, Adrian earned his IT chops as former general counsel at CrimsonLogic, a Singapore government technology company that provides network services in the legal, healthcare and trade sectors. This background, plus a rare second degree in computer science and psychology, gives this experienced courtroom lawyer the solid foundation to address technology disputes. These range from data centre construction, social media defamation, copyright infringement and passing-off in relation to consumer electronics, and patent infringement of vaccines.

His real estate practice includes appearing for subsidiary proprietors involved in collective sales litigation, and he has acted in the Gilstead Court, Thomson View, Shunfu Ville and Katong Mall en bloc proceedings.

Adrian’s keen interest in technology stems from his youth, when he used to build his own gaming computers from scratch. He no longer plays first-person shooters: these days it is blitz and lightning online chess, which he plays ­with the same sharp strategic thinking that he employs when he fights a case.

Big Data Bad Brother
TSMP Law Corporation, March 2019

Corporations and governments are ferreting out and squirreling away voluminous, detailed and private information about each and every one of us – and they are not afraid to use it.
