Imran coordinates the corporate restructuring and insolvency practice group in Eldan Law LLP and is one of the youngest to do so in Singapore. He advises and represents insolvency professionals, creditors, and debtors in local and cross-border restructurings and insolvencies. These include both contentious and non-contentious restructurings and liquidations.    

Imran also specialises in commercial litigation and international arbitration. He has advised and successfully represented foreign Governments, multinational corporations, public-listed companies, and high net-worth individuals in complex, high-value disputes heard at all levels of the Singapore Courts and in arbitrations under the ICC and SIAC rules.

Imran dedicates much of his time to pro bono and community work. Under the Legal Assistance Scheme for Capital Offences, he assisted in persuading the Attorney-General’s Chambers to reconsider the drug trafficking charge against his client and ensured that the latter avoided the capital punishment. He also spends his free time rendering pro bono assistance to those who are unable to afford legal representation.
