Raj Singh Shergill
Raj Singh Shergill is the founder of Lee Shergill LLP. Raj graduated with an LLB (Hons) from the National University of Singapore in 2000 and has more than 20 years of experience. He started out representing insurance companies for 6 years at insurance firm B Rao & K. S. Rajah and then at Rajah & Tann, one of the largest law firms in Singapore. With this unique perspective, he then moved on to represent claimants when he set up Lee Shergill LLP in 2008.
With his tenacity for litigation, and specialised knowledge of negligence, tort and insurance law, he has achieved successful outcomes for claimants even in seemingly hopeless cases, taking on errant drivers, employers, doctors, occupiers, as well as insurers who defendant these parties or wrongfully decline policy coverage against their own insureds after accepting premiums.
Over the course of his legal practice, Raj has had conduct of notable cases generating public interest at all levels from the State Courts to the Supreme Court, which have been reported in the news, law journals and legal textbooks.
Raj currently sits on the Personal Injury and Property Damage (PIPD) Committee of the Law Society of Singapore, the Personal Injury Review (PIRC) Committee of the Supreme Court and also advises GRAB Rentals Pte Ltd. He has also served as Legal Advisor to the Singapore Motor Workshops Association (SMWA). He believes strongly in fighting for justice for the everyday man and is personally involved in every case the firm handles.
Lee Shergill LLP was borne out of this passion to make the law accessible to everyone.
