Following in the tradition of Barrister's Chambers of the UK, Vaswani Law Chambers is helmed by a sole practitioner, Sanjiv Vaswani.
A former Deputy Public Prosecutor with the Attorney-General's Chambers, Singapore (AGC), Sanjiv carries with him more than a decade's worth of experience in Criminal Litigation, having prosecuted hundreds of criminal cases, many of which during his time with what was then known as the Financial and Technology Crime Division.
Rising through the ranks, Sanjiv was appointed Deputy Senior State Counsel, and in addition to being honoured with a Long Service Award, was also bestowed the Commendation Medal (Pingat Kepujian) by the President during the National Day Awards in 2018.
Known as a tenacious litigator, an example of Sanjiv's courtcraft is captured in the Heritage Gallery of the State Courts, where an excerpt of one of his famous cross-examinations of a witness is played by a younger (and arguably more handsome) actor on a continuous video loop.
With his years of experience as a prosecutor, Sanjiv brings a wealth of translatable litigation prowess in defending any nature of criminal and regulatory offences.
Bachelor of Laws (Hons), Nottingham (UK)
Master of Laws (International Commercial Law)
Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice (Equity Finance)
Diploma in Legal Studies
Investigated by the Commercial Affairs Division (CAD) and Charged with Criminal Breach of Trust of $1.1 million, an Accused who duped a widow into paying for a fake painting broke down after two and a half days of rigorous questioning by Sanjiv, and threw in the towel.
Sanjiv successfully proved that an Accused (who claimed he could not speak English) had struck a deal for the misappropriation of more than 200 tonnes of Marine Fuel Oil after a 13-day trial involving investigations by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB).
Sanjiv was part of the prosecution team that successfully brought to task Singapore's most prolific hacker to date. This was an immensely complex case that required the team to have hands-on knowledge and understanding of both computer forensics and penetration testing.
