Kavid Singh is an associate at Botkin Chiarello Calaf. Kavid’s current practice focuses on litigation and alternative dispute resolution in complex commercial matters, including contractual disputes, trade secret misappropriation, business torts, employment discrimination, and Texas Public Information Act disputes.
Before joining the firm, Kavid was an associate at Wittliff Cutter PLLC, practiced law in the Texas Attorney General’s Office, and clerked for a federal judge and two justices on the Supreme Court of Texas. His diverse experience in the Texas executive branch and both the state and federal judicial branches provides him with insight on how to approach a wide range of litigation matters.
Upon graduating from the University of Texas School of Law, Kavid joined the Office of the Texas Attorney General. In his four years with the state attorney general, he worked in open records, drafting hundreds of rulings that resolved confidentiality disputes for public information requests received by governmental entities across Texas.
Adept at contract drafting and review – Kavid drafted a multitude of contracts on behalf of the state attorney general and state agencies across Texas – he would eventually train a division within the state attorney general’s office on writing legal services agreements. He also spearheaded and implemented a reform effort to streamline some of the office’s contract drafting and internal approval processes.
Kavid’s experience with the executive branch of Texas government has also intersected with the legislative branch, having drafted memoranda for the attorney general’s office evaluating public policy matters and legislation introduced in the Texas Legislature.
Following his time with the Attorney General, Kavid clerked for the Hon. Brantley Starr of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. He has also clerked for Justice Evan Young and former Justice Eva Guzman of the Supreme Court of Texas.
