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.

In 2003, we were in the grip of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars). It was the first pandemic in the era of the Internet, blogging and social media. Amid the panic about infections, one individual was widely labelled a “super spreader”. Her name and personal details were published...

Reading the Tea Leaves for 2020
TSMP Law Corporation, January 2020

Oh what a year it has been. 2019 has been a rollercoaster ride: Trump accelerates and then suddenly slams on the brakes on his tit-for-tat trade war with China. Hong Kong, hitherto the paradigm of pragmatism, lies smouldering as months of pro-democracy protests see no end. A Swedish girl (celebrating her 17th birthday just last Friday) becomes the unlikely face of environmentalism, shaming Boomers for doing nothing about climate change in front of the UN...
