About David

David has seen tremendous changes at the Bar over the last 25 years, but the area that has evolved the least has been the provision of support for those young graduates just starting out in this challenging profession. With his knowledge and experience, together with the support of Chambers there has been an emphasis and focus in a ‘soft landing’ for developing these budding careers, including an in-house mentorship scheme, details of which have been incorporated as policies in Chambers.

Once the COVID travel restrictions are lifted, exchange programmes will be in place with other jurisdictions in Singapore, Malaysia and England.

David has also been encouraging members to participate in more pro bono work and to actively assist local NGOs.
