Profile
"Building" is a word you will hear a lot when it comes to describing Derek. With Building and Construction Law as the foundation of his practice, he has built a towering resume that encompasses almost the entire spectrum of construction legal practice, ranging from drafting construction contracts to dispute resolution and arbitrations in construction projects (including complex petrochemical plant projects). This love for construction also translates to the strong relationships he builds with his clients. Derek immerses himself in their worlds, deconstructing their businesses and commercial culture to build sound, tactical strategies and advice.

Derek's building doesn't stop outside the firm. Involved in the work of Lasallian schools, particularly the St Joseph's Institution family, he helps develop schools in Singapore, KL and the region, literally helping to break new ground for the Singaporean brand of education overseas.

Sustainability Reporting
TSMP Law Corporation, April 2018

Population growth has become the be-all and end-all for economic prosperity, but how on Earth can we cope with the extra billions of people? While “leafing” – or should I instead say “scrolling” in today’s need to sound tech savvy – through the news websites, the two subjects seemed to have captured the media’s attention: immigration and plastic...
