Kawal graduated from the University of Southampton with a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) in July 2014, and was admitted to the roll of Advocates and Solicitors of the Supreme Court of Singapore in August 2016. Thereafter, he joined Tito Isaac & Co LLP as an Associate in September 2016. Prior to joining us, Kawal completed his legal training at a medium-sized law firm where he assisted a prominent Senior Counsel in a variety of complex criminal & civil litigation and international arbitration matters.
Kawal’s legal practise primarily focuses on Civil and Criminal Litigation and he has been involved in an array of cases at the State Courts and High Court since being admitted to the Singapore Bar. He has also been involved in non-contentious matters such as drafting and reviewing various corporate agreements and restructuring of corporate entities. Kawal has also been active acting as counsel in international arbitration matters. Currently he is an Associate Member with the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators.
Passion for the Law and Litigation
There are a couple of reasons why Kawal chose to practice law, in the area of litigation. First, he enjoys the adversarial concept of Singapore’s legal system. The opportunity of advocate his views and arguments against an opposing lawyer, before a Judge in a courtroom, excites him. The second motivating factor is that he enjoys interacting and building professional relationships with individuals from various professional and cultural backgrounds. It is important to him that in any case, he works very closely with the client. He strongly feels that a client needs to be informed of not only the merits of the case but also the strategy and nuances of the arguments. Kawal feels that practising the law is a calling and his fulfilment comes from the satisfaction he gets when helping clients realise their rights, while respecting the bounds of the law and ethics.
Practising the law is Kawal’s second profession as he was a consumer electronics Trader for 7 years. He has experience and knowledge about the trading business, particularly in the distribution of consumer electronics products in the African continent. His business and client-care experience bring confidence and calmness to clients and hisperseverance and focus assures clients that the best possible outcome, in their cases, will be striven.
Believing in giving back to society, Kawal has been and still is an active member of the Sikh Community in Singapore. He is currently the President of the Sikh Sewaks Singapore (SSS), a Sikh youth organisation which is committed to identifying key challenges faced by local Sikh youth and implementing sustainable programmes to support them. Kawal is also the Secretary of the Coordinating Council of Sikh Institutions, a council which plays a key role of helping the all local Sikh institutions coordinate and complement each other.
"When we needed legal representation, we immediately thought of TIC. Kawal was assigned to our matter. He exceeded our expectations, working tirelessly, exploring every avenue and patiently advising us on our options; in the end we achieved the best outcome we could hope for, with minimal stress. We are definitely going back to TIC for all our legal needs."

“As a professional couple working in Singapore, we regrettably found ourselves involved in a commercial dispute with a large multi-national company. We approach Tito Isaac & Co to assist us in resolving the matter in a timely and amicable manner. This was certainly achieved, with our sincere appreciation going to Mr Kawal Singh for his unwavering professionalism and expert counsel. A difficult assignment, which was done with great aptitude.”
