Edmund began his legal career at Drew & Napier LLC and became the Managing Partner of Braddell Brothers in September 2009.

He has over 18 years of experience in dispute resolution and arbitration.

As litigation counsel, Edmund is actively engaged in trial and appellate advocacy at all levels of the Singapore Courts, predominantly in the High Court and Court of Appeal. He has also been instructed by other solicitors to act as Counsel. Edmund has argued against a variety of Senior Counsel in trials and other hearings, and against Queen’s Counsel, successfully, in an appeal before the Singapore High Court in July 2012. Edmund is privileged to be an invited Honorary Overseas Member of both COMBAR (Commercial Bar Association), England and the Chancery Bar Association, England.

Since 2010, Edmund has been instructed on no less than 7 Worldwide Mareva Injunctions / Freezing Injunctions with a combined value of approx. USD 1 billion.

As arbitration counsel, Edmund represents clients in international arbitrations predominantly under the SIAC, ICC and UNCITRAL Rules. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb), Singapore Institute of Arbitrators (SIArb), Malaysian Institute of Arbitrators (MIArb), Arbitrators’ and Mediators’ Institute of New Zealand (AMINZ), Hong Kong Institute of Arbitrators (HKIArb) and the Philippine Institute of Arbitrators (PIArb).

Edmund also sits as an Arbitrator. He is admitted to the arbitrators’ panels / lists of the Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration (KLRCA), Badan Arbitrase Nasional Indonesia / Indonesian National Board of Arbitration (BANI), Thai Arbitration Institute (TAI), Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), the Chinese Arbitration Association, Taipei, Taiwan (CAA), the Vienna International Arbitral Centre (VIAC) and the Indian Institute of Arbitration and Mediation (IIAM).

We are mindful that commercial arbitration often requires a form of advocacy and an overall approach very different from the contentious, hard-hitting style usually employed in commercial litigation in Court.

We know this because of our lawyers’ experience as counsel in ICC, SIAC and UNCITRAL arbitrations in Singapore and abroad e.g. Jakarta and Los Angeles, involving disputes arising in South Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan, Russia, China, the Philippines and Singapore. The largest of these involved an Indonesian oil and gas dispute against a state-owned company where the claim and counterclaim exceeded USD 500 million in total.

We have also advised and acted as counsel for clients in disputes arising from the cross-border enforcement of arbitral Awards.
