Devandran Karunakaran

Lawyer - Ship Finance

Born and bred in the bustling city-state of Singapore, known for its globally significant port, Devandran Karunakaran was naturally inclined to carve a niche in legal domains directly associated with maritime activities, such as ship financing. His expertise also extends to providing counsel to offshore and renewable energy enterprises. Raised in a household brimming with love and joy, he is the son of a chef mother with a flair for authentic Southeast Asian cuisine and a father who dedicated his career to education as a headmaster of an international school. His upbringing, surrounded by a large, extended family primarily based in Singapore, was grounded in strong familial bonds.

At 21, after fulfilling a 2-1/2 year commitment to national service, he embarked on a journey to the United Kingdom. This was a significant step in claiming his independence and laying the groundwork for his professional life. His academic pursuits led him to the University of Leicester, an esteemed research institution renowned for propelling students into advanced realms of learning. He distinguished himself in contract law, navigating the complexities of legal and commercial agreements between entities. Furthermore, he delved into public international law, The Law of Nations, enhancing his understanding of the legal norms governing global interactions.

His university years were enriched by interactions with a diverse student body, leading to meaningful friendships that have endured over time. Indeed, one of these university friends played a vital role at his wedding, standing by him as his best man. He also embraced university life as a committed member of the rugby team, where he showcased his skills and team spirit. Post-graduation, his journey led him to London, where he commenced his legal career and secured a prestigious training contract with a well-established international law firm headquartered in the UK.

The journey to becoming a UK solicitor is fraught with challenges, with training contracts being highly coveted and competitive. However, Devandran swiftly secured a position with a prominent UK law firm, choosing to establish his career in London rather than returning to Singapore. His nearly 13-year tenure in London was transformative, as he developed invaluable professional connections and forged personal alliances.
