Lawyer – Ship Finance

Devandran Karunakaran


About Me

Devandran Karunakaran was born and raised in Singapore, a country that harbours one of the busiest and largest ports in the world. This backdrop of a busy urban society based on practical import and export economics was an initial reason for focusing his early legal career on acting for clients on ship financing deals and advising offshore and renewable energy companies. Mr. Karunakaran grew up in a happy and loving household. His mother was a chef specializing in authentic Southeast Asian dishes, and his father was the headmaster of an international school. He has a large extended family, most of whom still live in Singapore. After completing his mandatory 2-1/2 year national service to the country at 21, Devandran moved to London to pursue postgraduate studies at University College London (UCL), graduating with an LLM degree from UCL’s prestigious law school. During this time, he met his wife, Claire, originally from Wales in the UK. The two married soon after graduation and have since had three beautiful children – all bilingual, thanks to their growing exposure to English and Tamil languages. Devandran currently resides with his family in Singapore, where he practices law with one of Asia’s leading maritime law firms, Drew & Napier LLC., as part of their shipping finance team.
