Top litigator, Drew & Napier CEO Cavinder Bull SC, handpicked as one of Asia’s Top 15 Litigators by Asian Legal Business 15 Feb 2021 Drew & Napier is pleased to announce that our CEO Cavinder Bull SC has been identified as one of Asia’s Top 15 Litigators by Asian Legal Business (ALB). Cavinder is one of only three Singaporeans to make it to this inaugural list. ALB’s research team handpicked Cavinder based on the following criteria: significant cases in his entire career and the last 12 months; key and new clients attained; accolades and awards won; and client recommendations. In an exclusive interview with ALB, Cavinder listed three important attributes for litigators: “Integrity has to be top of the list as Judges are quick to discern which counsel they can trust. Secondly, one has to have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge of the law and life. Legal knowledge is vital but it must be married with a deep understanding of people, commerce, and cultures. Thirdly, one needs a good work ethic and a healthy appetite for a challenge. One should prepare thoroughly, speak clearly, listen carefully, and be tenacious”. Cavinder also dispensed some advice to aspiring young litigators: “Commit yourself to the process of becoming a great litigator. Let that be one of the most important things in your life so that you approach it with commitment and passion. Leave space for other things in your life of course but make this one of your top three priorities. Few people become great litigators accidentally”.
