Speakers' profiles

David Grief is the CEO of Essex Court Chambers Duxton (Singapore Group Practice). He assists with the development of the practices of all members of Chambers, as well as providing strategic support. David spent 40 years as the senior clerk of Essex Court Chambers in London.


Calvin Liang acts as lead and junior counsel in white-collar criminal, commercial and regulatory matters. He specialises in conflicts of law, company law and injunctions, especially Mareva and Anton Piller injunctions. He writes in the area of public law and has been favourably cited by the Singapore Court of Appeal.


Tham Lijing is regularly instructed as lead counsel by local firms. These commercial disputes usually involve restitutionary issues, and range from $1,000,000 to more than $20,000,000. He also often provides advice on dispute avoidance - i.e. how to prevent a dispute going to court or arbitration in the first place.


Colin Liew is a commercial disputes lawyer who as both leading and junior counsel has represented clients in a number of reported cases involving novel points of law, and has on several occasions provided expert evidence of Singapore law to courts in other jurisdictions. Colin has received recognition in a number of leading publications, and he has been praised by the High Court for providing “able and diligent assistance” through his submissions.
