Singapore-based arbitration specialists Simon Dunbar (R) and Kevin Lim, who were most recently at Gateway Law Corporation, have established a new firm called Dunbar & Lim Chambers.

The arbitration-focused firm has four fee-earners, with Dunbar and Lim leading it as joint managing directors. The duo had joined Gateway early last year from King & Spalding.

With nearly two decades of experience, Dunbar has handled more than 50 international arbitration cases. An arbitrator with SIAC, HKIAC, KCAB and AIAC, Dunbar spent 11 years at King & Spalding, becoming a partner in 2014.

Lim, who has also handled more than 50 international arbitration cases, is listed as an arbitrator at SIAC, HKIAC, KCAB, AIAC and THAC. Before a seven-year stint at King & Spalding, Lim served as a state counsel for the Singapore government.

Singapore has seen the launch of a number of disputes-focused boutiques recently, including Chua & Partners and Setia Law.
