“The lion cannot protect himself from traps, and the fox cannot defend himself from wolves. One must therefore be a fox to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten wolves.”

– Niccolo Machiavelli

He has acted for clients in disputes arising out of shipbuilding contracts, charterparties, bills of lading, commodities trading, MOAs, cargo claims and vessel contamination claims. He is well versed in both dry and wet shipping disputes.

Shanen’s contentious areas of practice also extends to commercial litigation. He has advised clients on a wide range of issues including breach of contract, quantum of loss analysis, company disputes, fraud, directors’ fiduciary duties, joint venture disputes, commercial tenancies, conflict of laws, enforcement actions and committal proceedings. He has argued various contentious interlocutory applications involving complex issues such as jurisdictional stays, injunctions and summary disposals on points of law. Shanen has been fortunate to argue an application before a Judge of Appeal in his early years of practice. He has appeared as counsel across all levels of the Singapore Courts, and has chalked up significant advocacy experience.

Having a keen interest in alternative dispute resolution processes, Shanen has also assisted in several high-value arbitration proceedings conducted under the auspices of SIAC, LMAA and SCMA. He is well acquainted with the Rules of the various arbitral institutions.

Shanen is a firm believer that everyone is owed the right to a fair trial. To this end, he tenaciously defends his clients in criminal proceedings and has successfully obtained discharges amounting to acquittal for several clients.

Shanen’s recent focus has been on contentious and non-contentious aspects of insurance, and he regularly assists the Firm’s Directors with the same.
