Lauren successfully acted in an SIAC matter on behalf of steel plant buyers in a damages claim for US$367 million and represented them in an application by the opposing arbitral party to set aside the award. The award was eventually largely maintained by the Court of Appeal. Other arbitration matters include an on-going SIAC arbitration between an energy/commodities company and a state-owned oil/natural gas corporation.

Court-wise, Lauren was most recently involved in disputes between a leading company in the anchor and mooring industry and its Singapore distributor, an established freight forwarder and an introducer as well as another well-known freight forwarder along with its customer.

She also has experience in financial institution related issues, having been involved in the liquidation of an established financial brokerage in Singapore and acted for financial institutions against claims of misrepresentations and failure in performing statutory obligations.

Lauren is familiar with shipping-related matters, having advised a ship manager in a settlement with the ship owners in respect of disputes involving a South Africa vessel arrest, advising a charterer on various claims by cargo interests and ship owners for lost cargo at sea as well as obtaining an injunction to restrain the ship owner from calling on a bank guarantee.
