   About Me

Ashokan has been in the legal services for the past 26 years. Through his years of practice, Ashokan has accumulated vast experience in both contentious and non-contentious matters, although his primary focus now lies in contentious matters. The contentious matters that Ashokan handles comprise civil and criminal matters in respect of which he has appeared in the State Courts, High Court and the Court of Appeal of Singapore. Ashokan’s experience in civil litigation spans a wide area, including administrative and constitutional law, tort law, bankruptcy and insolvency law, corporate and commercial law, defamation law, employment law, family law, immigration law, insurance and reinsurance law and property law. Ashokan’s criminal practice covers a broad spectrum of white-collar and blue-collar cases, including cases involving corruption, criminal misappropriation, fraud, tax evasion, drink driving, voluntarily causing hurt, outrage of modesty, murder, drug-related and immigration-related offences. Apart from contentious matters, Ashokan is also experienced in handling non-contentious matters and has advised numerous clients on matters such as conveyance, probate and preparation of tenancy, share, distribution, franchise, and a spectrum of many other agreements to suit clients' requirements. Ashokan’s clients include multi-national and local corporations, individuals, statutory boards, town councils and registered societies, including the Law of Society of Singapore.
