Bazul heads the firm’s dispute resolution practice and is actively engaged in commercial litigation, arbitration and mediation. His areas of practice include company law, international trade, banking, trade finance, shareholders’ disputes, insurance, insolvency and shipping.

He has gathered extensive experience in representing international clients in multi-jurisdictional, high value business crime and asset tracing cases and is also widely recognised for handling high profile and complex litigations, corporate investigations, insurance coverage disputes and shareholder disputes.

A large part of his practice involves cross border elements and he is extremely well regarded for his expertise in managing disputes in multiple jurisdictions with different legal systems. His many years of managing disputes across regions has placed him in a unique position to take account of cultural nuances in providing practical solutions and speedy resolution to complex disputes. Bazul also holds the appointment as Ambassador to the Singapore International Mediation Centre (SIMC) to Indonesia. This appointment is recognition of his leadership in alternative dispute resolution in Singapore and the Asia Pacific region.

Bazul is also highly experienced in fraud and asset recovery claims and is a specialist in securing freezing and disclosure orders to trace, preserve, and recover assets. Most recently, he led the firm’s fraud and asset recovery team to successfully secure a US$5 billion freezing order in Singapore as part of a co-ordinated effort to simultaneously obtain freezing orders in jurisdictions across the world including the UK, Hong Kong SAR, Luxembourg, and Cyprus.
