Knowledge Management

To preserve and harness our lawyers' experience, the team constantly develops, updates and maintains Drew & Napier’s collective know-how. Our tools include our information databases, central library and our online legal resources. Precedents, standard documents, practice notes and new materials from our practitioners are drafted, updated and regularly reviewed by the team.

The team prepares and circulates to our clients legal updates and publications on the latest developments in law and other topics of interest. The team also prepares quarterly updates in the areas of International Arbitration and Competition Law.


Drew & Napier strongly emphasises the sharing of knowledge and expertise within the firm. We do this through in-house training and professional development programmes tailored to the lawyers' needs and expertise.
