“To dare is to do.”
Anand epitomises the quintessential criminal litigator and – armed with a firm belief in the pursuit of fairness & justice without fear or favour – he has applied a committed approach to represent clients in cases ranging from capital and violent crimes to corporate and commercial offences, earning a reputation for specialised skills and professional tenacity as a recognised industry leader.
In this spirit, Anand often steps forward to defend the defenseless, fulfilling his professional obligation and offering steadfast support to enhance access to justice for all in pro bono representation of impecunious accused persons under the auspices of the Legal Assistance Scheme for Capital Offences (LASCO) and the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (CLAS).
Anand believes in developing the next generation of criminal lawyers to assume the mantle of counsel and take up the cudgels to preserve due process. To this end, he is an adjunct Associate Professor at the Faculty of Law in the National University of Singapore.
