                                                                       My Law Practice

Greetings!


On 11 September 1985, I became an advocate and solicitor of the Supreme Court of Singapore.  3 years later, I was given the privilege of being a partner in Donaldson & Burkinshaw, one of the pioneer law firms in Singapore.


In 1998, with more than a decade of litigation experience behind me, I started this boutique law practice.   


Guided by the principle that disputes can and should be resolved fairly, expeditiously and economically, my practice has helped many clients resolve disputes involving companies and their shareholders, contests over property rights, equities and trust laws, liabilities in tort, contractual rights and obligations, family matters and building works.    


I have represented clients at mediation, arbitration and court proceedings at every level of the Courts in Singapore including the Court of Appeal, the highest Court in our legal system. 


 With my rich litigation experience in corporate affairs, I can also help clients avoid pot holes in their business plans and strategies.  


 If you need an obligation-free first consultation about your legal situation or if you need my help to prepare your Will, Lasting Power of Attorney or to notarize your documents for overseas use , please contact me.


These are some of the legal proceedings handled by me
