"Legal transformation through technology is about creating better access to better justice. In Asia, this means achieving in the 21st century what humans have done for food, medicine, education in the 20th - ensuring justice for 4.5 billion people, and building an even better legal system for our children."

Josh presently serves as the Chair of the Steering Committee of the Asia-Pacific Legal Innovation and Technology Association (ALITA). He also works as a Legal Policy Manager for AI Ethics and Governance in the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA). Prior to this, Josh practiced as an international arbitration lawyer in Lee & Lee, one of the largest and most recognised firms in Singapore. He is also registered as an Advocate and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Singapore, and served as a Legal Policy Officer for the Singapore Ministry of Law. Josh is deeply passionate in issues at the intersection of law, policy and technology, and finds a deep sense of purpose and fulfilment in working for the greater good and making sense of the future.
