"We engaged DKC in an Advisory capacity on a gas power project. The client was the government backed project sponsor and DKC was selected after a rigorous selection process due in no small part to the firm’s specific FSRU knowledge in the offshore LNG sector which is unparalleled and runs deep. In addition, Devandran was able to distill information quickly and identify the specific project risks facing the client. It was clear that Devandran had real experience of the country and market challenges facing the client. DKC advised the client on the best strategy to adopt to be resilient to these specific risks and did so in a timely, client friendly manner."
Director of Strategy at one of the Big Four
"Devandran was on the other side of a high profile offshore LNG project.
Bearing in mind what was at stake, I was impressed with his ability to cut through the often tense and difficult negotiations to the heart of issues to find commercially workable and acceptable solutions.
As always, he was professional and affable in his approach which had the effect of calming often tense negotiations."
Andrew Bridson, Deputy Director Shipping & Marine CLP Power
"I have worked with Devandran on a number of debt and project financing deals in the maritime and offshore energy sectors. Devandran is clearly well versed in these sectors and in addition, he is always extremely client focused in his approach and he makes it a point to understand and be sensitive to specific concerns and outcomes which need to be achieved. His affable and approachable manner puts us at ease knowing and trusting that we have an experienced advisor who is adept at structuring and negotiating complex and often time sensitive deals."
Quincy Chan, Head of Singapore Branch and Head of Clients, Asia - National Australia Bank
"I worked with Devandran of DKC on a complex cross multi-border sensitive negotiation with entrenched principals. He is always calm and professional and pragmatic, recognizing the greater benefit of solution rather than sticking blindly to a position, and that if both parties are a little unhappy, then the compromise is probably a good one."
