Singapore Big Four law firm WongPartnership has made its first lateral partner hire in about a year after welcoming disputes expert Daniel Gaw as a partner from Dechert, where he was a senior associate.

With 11 years of experience, Gaw advises corporations, equity funds, and sovereign states on high-value disputes and arbitrations in oil and gas, mining, renewable energy, construction, and commodities.

Prior to joining Dechert in 2018, Gaw was at Rajah & Tann Singapore for about three years. He previously worked at the Supreme Court of Singapore and the Competition Appeal Board as a law clerk.

WongPartnership’s last lateral partner hire was that of M&A lawyer Low Wee Siong, who joined the firm in January last year from CNPLaw. Before that, the firm hired another arbitration practitioner, Alessa Pang, from Rajah & Tann in July 2022.
