Ronald worked with us to build and launch two projects: (1) a company-wide raft of operational policies and procedures and (2) a risk management system. All based upon government contracts and KPIs. Ronald managed the building and development phases using his strong project management abilities, contract and compliance knowhow, extensive involvement with teams on the ground and he conducted more than 30 workshops. The workload was much heavier than originally expected but Ronald was entirely nonplussed and delivered both projects to a very high standard. I know that everyone who interacted with Ronald appreciated his calmness and politeness, skill and systemic thinking towards the projects. Thank you Ronald!

Mark B,

Ronald is a “new-age” generation legal advisor who’s constantly aware of client’s needs and offers practical advice and solutions. There’s a unique personal touch from him to ensure that the legal terms are easy to digest and understand by a layman.

J. Koh,

Ronald understood my requirements and was prompt in responding to the brief and his advice was very sound.

J. Hughes,

Ronald is a trustworthy lawyer who provides good counsel for the issues we brought to him. He often went out of the way to uncover issues that may pop up much further down the line and to give guidance on the things to do now to prevent future incidents. We have a great opinion of him as counsel and have a great deal of faith in his expertise. Ronald often responded within the hour and was available when we required his counsel. Ronald often provided advice that was not in our direct scope but also tangentially associated with our requirements down the line. Professional … except he didn’t wear the wig as they do in some tv dramas. Reliable and dependable to provide good advice. Affordable … he charges less than his worth.

J. Soh,

Ronald is able to provide helpful, timely and professional legal advice thru layman format. He will share all the necessary and important information regarding the scenario, implication and consequence of a legal matter. He is attentive and able to provide constructive feedback and concerns with great deal of patience. I would especially like to commend Ronald on his professionalism and superlative skills ! I would also like to recommend Ronald to anyone who needs a good lawyer!

C. T. Tan, financial controller of a listed group of companies manufacturing and distributing appliances,

Ronald Wong is approachable and trustworthy, a lawyer I would happily recommend to friends and relatives.

B. Tan,

I was extremely satisfied by the speed at which I got the requested service and documents.

M. Guillien-Steinbach,

We are very grateful for your succinct, robust and eloquent response. Based on our years of experience with legal attorneys in Singapore and beyond, we would also like to use this opportunity to commend you on your efforts to date, with which we are very pleased.

J. Hamad,

Very well done and highly appreciate your efforts.

A. Ahmad, CEO of a financial service firm,

Overall you are professional and understanding

C. Teo,

Absolutely [prompt]… You give me sufficient advice. You clearly guide me on dealing with the opposite side. You are patient… We have good communication… You are also patient for further explanation when I was having something not sure. Your services are excellent.

Matthew C,

Mr Wong carefully listened to the specifics of my case before giving his opinion and counsel, which was very helpful, offering not only understanding but empathy.

C Tan,

Excellent. You have my account for the foreseeable future.

C. Roux dit Buisson, start-up founder,

Your services are great, you are patient with your explanations, and you tailor the language use (simple/complex) in your emails and contracts to the clients/reader, you work within a highly affordable budget, and you are transparent and sincere in your services. And now you’re willing to take feedback to further improve your services. Great experience throughout.

M Hu,

I worked with Ronald Wong when I was the Comms executive/Case worker with HealthServe. Even before Ronald graduated from law school and started his practice, he was already a committed and dedicated volunteer, initiating a fund raising event for the medical NGO and also contributing articles to raise awareness on migrant worker issues.

After Ronald was called to the Bar, he volunteered as a pro bono lawyer and represented a few foreign workers I was assisting at HealthServe. As a new lawyer who had to often handle a heavy workload, he still showed the same commitment and passion in his pro bono work, always conscientious in keeping his clients and the case workers updated. He has represented foreign workers facing criminal and employment violation charges, and was exceptional when it came to following each case from start to finish.

What I appreciate most about working with Ronald is his dedication, patience and compassion towards disenfranchised foreign workers.

Jacqueline Tan, former HealthServe staff,

I had the privilege of working with Ronald while setting up my first company. Ronald was involved in many aspects of the start-up, including negotiations with business partners from both Europe and Asia. I was very satisfied with his drafting of contracts with fairly complex requirements. From day one of our interactions, a few things stood out that made my experience very different from my earlier legal endeavours: Ronald’s competence is one of the best I’ve come across in the field. He was very, very fast in turning around on several items in our work. Communication and responsiveness were beyond my expectations – the best I’ve seen so far. Regardless of where I was and the time zones I was in, Ronald was always just a call away, affording my team and I valuable advice. The complexity of our work required a fair bit of research and expertise and Ronald was able to manoeuvre us through it with a great deal of care and clarity while taking a lot of time out to ensure we (the client) were aware of the process and on the same page. With his advice, we were able to conclude significantly better terms of trade. Above all, Ronald is one of the nicest human beings I’ve met – one who goes beyond requirements both professionally and privately, which makes it very pleasant to do business and work with him. I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Ronald to my friends and colleagues.

Vincent Wong, founder of two businesses,

There may be may legal professionals who know the law, but very few appreciate its nuances. I have known Ronald Wong to be one of those few.

Having known Ronald first as a classmate in Law School and then as fellow practitioners, I have come to observe how effortlessly he navigates legal concepts and legal issues, with a strong appreciation of each person’s specific circumstances. Put together, these skills enable him to provide the best possible legal solution for whatever is brought to his attention.

That aside, Ronald is also a man of deep compassion, and his dedication towards the man on the street is equal to the man who may be held in higher esteem. I have no doubt that in leaving your legal (or other) concerns with him, these matters will be handled with the utmost of skill and heart, and you can trust him to be your counsel and fervent advocate both in the courtroom and out.

As we were setting up our operations in Singapore, we were introduced to Yuen Law by a mutual friend. We have been very happy from the get go and have been able to get all our basic legal needs met in Singapore with the help of Yuen Law. As a fast paced technology company ourselves, we value prompt responses and great communication. Yuen Law has provided us prompt feedback and comments on whatever items we may have required. I can only recommend them to other expat companies looking to setup business in Singapore.

Antti Vilpponen, General Manager, Upcloud,

Yuen Law is prompt and professional. They provide good quality legal advice and services. I would recommend Yuen Law without any hesitation as the firm is very sincere and small business friendly and takes a great deal of interest in understanding a company’s problems and provides direct solutions to problems. Samuel and his team as a whole are a bunch of rock stars and work together closely to solve a our problems in a timely and professional manner.

Aditya Haripurkar, Founder, Hit Pay,

I have known Samuel as a lawyer and friend for a few years. During this time, Samuel has provided me and my companies with invaluable advice and guidance for various commercial transactions. Samuel is also one of the most authentic people you will ever hope to meet in the market place. He takes the extra effort to explain various considerations simply (without legal jargon). Samuel gives very practical and commercially-savvy legal advice. This gave me the confidence we needed to move ahead with our transactions. With his help and the support of his team, I successfully re-acquired the HSR Group for S$1. Not only is Samuel and his team highly competent and knowledgeable, I know they care for me and are attentive to my concerns and are constantly looking out for my interests and legal rights. I have been doing business for more than 25 over years, and I dare say that it is sometimes difficult to find like-minded business people and entrepreneurs, which is why I value our relationship with Yuen Law greatly.

Dr Patrick Liew, Entrepreneur of the Year for Social Contributions, Managing Director, Global Enterprise Exchange,

We have been working with Yuen Law since organizing our first ever event in Singapore in 2016 that was an international investor-startup conference of 2,000 people. Samuel and his team helped us with contracts and agreements, and gave plenty of consultation on matters big and small. There was no question we couldn’t ask them and no matter too big for them to resolve. Samuel and his team felt right away the right persons to work with – they understood very well the challenges of a small non-profit and were able to read well the startup mentality we had.

We highly appreciated the friendly and helping attitude of the whole team. We worked closely with Samuel and Jennifer who are rock solid professionals and were able to give us great advice – and they do everything with a customer-first approach. I can highly recommend Yuen Law to companies big and small, especially to startups that are looking for a legal partner that understands what a startup is going through.

Anna Ratala, Head of Slush Singapore,

I have worked twice with Yuen Law, first when the firm helped establish Foundation Chinese Opera, a non-profit organisation and later when it managed the registration process of Passerelles numériques, a French non-profit wishing to establish a Singapore base. In both cases Yuen Law proved to be a knowledgeable counsellor and I was also impressed by the follow-up work done. Equally important, charges of Yuen Law have always been very reasonable. Working with Samuel has been a pleasure.

Ferdinand de Bakker, Managing Director, La Croisette Pte Ltd,

I needed help in legal aspects of setting up an eco-enterprise and Yuen Law being known to the social enterprise scene was my obvious choice. Yuen Law is upfront about what they propose and flexible in their dealings. I really love how Samuel and the team are so understanding and compassionate towards issues small enterprises face. The team is always quick to help out in any way possible, especially when times got hard. I am grateful for the human side of Yuen Law. Samuel has always been the cheerful and personable one, never once rejecting my need to see him. Cheryl takes great effort to stay in touch and reply promptly! I would definitely recommend Yuen Law because they are very approachable and would never leave anyone hanging.

Kathy Xu, The Dorsal Effect,

We needed a firm who could help with our local and international trade mark protection needs at a reasonable price. We like the team’s responsiveness, and “light touch” approach. Samuel and his team were headstrong on issues that they feel will represent our best interests. Balancing deal-making with legal considerations is a skill that business people really look for in good lawyers, and they hit the bull’s-eye with this. We hit off our partnership on the right note. I would recommend their services because of their firm’s friendly but serious culture. They are an easy going bunch whom cares about their work.

We got to know Nakoorsha though a friend’s recommendation. He invited us down for a non obligatory chat to understand the case was able to explain and provide my Dad and myself with very clear advise and solutions. He also stated the legal fees involved and promised us that there were no hidden charges. He was friendly, down to earth and we felt assured after the first meeting with him so we decided to engage him for my Dad’s case.

Nakoorsha represented my Dad well. He kept us informed of what was going on, what to expect and what we should do. He also explained the implications that might come along the way and made sure we understood what he was doing as well as what the possible outcomes could be, whether it is good or bad.

After several rounds of court meetings, discussions by Nakoorsha and the DPP, my Dad’s case finally came to a close with a stern warning given. We could have not done this without his expertise and we appreciate his time and effort in achieving a very positive outcome for the case.

I would strongly recommend Nakoorsha if you are looking for a responsible lawyer who can clearly articulate what all the legal jargons are and of course provide good solutions.

Lim Fung Peen

I have known Fung Peen and Samuel since I was a teenager. Fung Peen has always been a mentor and a dependable and faithful friend. He is someone whom I have shared many joyous occasions and tough times. When my mother was considering writing her will, and getting my grandmother’s LPA done, Fung Peen was the first person who came to mind. It was definitely the right decision to go to him. The team at Yuen Law was instrumental in the process. I would like to commend the team, who helped translate terms into Cantonese for my grandmother to understand, ensuring that she felt at ease when faced with many documents to sign. Fung Peen was able to explain in the most practical of ways, the short and longer term considerations to help us arrive at our decision. He took the time to explain, to us – laymen, not only the ‘letter of the law’ but the ‘spirit of the law’. I highly recommend Fung Peen and the team at Yuen Law, simply because they embody the core values of integrity, professionalism, and they have demonstrated an outstanding level of care for their clients.

Eugene Chua,

Doing a will is actually easy with the help of a lawyer. I have been putting it off, thinking that it was difficult and cumbersome to execute. I attended a talk conducted by Yuen Law on Estate Planning. Mr Lim Fung Peen encouraged the audience to make the process of distribution easier for their love ones by taking a simple step to get the will done as soon possible. Mr Lim’s follow up was excellent. I submitted my details to Yuen Law and the next moment, I was at Yuen Law’s office signing my Will. Mr Lim made the effort to explain the key points of the Will. To my surprise executing a will was so simple, and not complicated as I had thought. We work hard to ensure that our love ones are provided for in raining days, it would be prudent to make the distribution process simpler for them. I encouraged you to spare this little time to get your Will done with Yuen Law.

BC Ong,

Fung Peen provided good insights and practical advice on the selection of our donees for our LPAs, as well as the selection of guardians and trustee of our estate. On the day of signing of our wills, the team ran through a couple of scenarios, so that we could really think through what we want to happen under each scenarios. Our wills were correspondingly better worded to address those scenarios. Fung Peen and his team were patient to answer all my queries and concerns pertaining to our LPAs and wills. I felt comfortable and was able to trust the sound and logical advice given by the lawyers. I was also pleased with the meticulous administrative service provided by the support staff, who repeatedly checked and ensured the smooth documentation of the LPAs and wills. I had a very positive experience with Yuen Law.

Kum Chee,

My divorced was finalized a few years ago, I am grateful that Fung Peen “held my hand” and provided expert guidance and advice throughout that very difficult experience. Fung Peen always kept me informed and took pains to make sure that I fully understood the legal process, my options and the consequences of each option I took. Talking to Fung Peen was like talking to a friend. I was impressed at how Fung Peen was always so well prepared and meticulous in terms of presenting the information/facts needed to support my case.

Cynndi Lai,

We were always keen to have a will written, but due to a lack of knowledge and fears of a hassle, we have been putting it off. So when Fung Peen approached us to write a will, his professionalism, and caring attitude helped allay our fears. We were unsure of what to state in a will, especially when it came to the appointment of the guardians for our children. Fung Peen was very patient and understood our worries and recommended us an appropriate will suitable for couples with young children. Fung Peen helped us realise the importance of handling finance matters. Fung Peen is sincere, non-judgmental and understands our concerns completely. His approach is gentle and caring, always providing a clear and sincere perspective.

Mrs. Moynihan is one of the finest attorneys and persons you will ever meet. Her approach to law is both extremely thorough and meticulous, while at the same time, her personality is warm, kind, and generous. I had the great misfortune of being unduly caught in the Singaporean criminal justice system and yet the silver lining of that misfortune was the truly great fortune that Nadia took my case. Through several years of set backs and endless frustrations, she did more than just represent me to the best of her abilities, she raised my spirits with countless gestures of kindness and friendship.

For many people, needing the services of a lawyer often means an uncertain and dark time in their lives. Nadia Moynihan is a wonderful lawyer and a great friend to have in those times of darkness and uncertainty. The ways she went above and beyond what could be expected of any lawyer, to look after me, are too numerous to list here.

Thank you Nadia, from the bottom of my heart. Is é mo theach do theach.

Ian,

I have used Nadia’s services for divorce / maintenance matters. I have consulted several lawyers before that and among others I found that Nadia had a sincere desire to help without overcharging for it. I find it a rare quality in lawyers. Nadia provides her clients online support as well and she had a personalized approach to my case. I am grateful for her assistance, thus can recommend her to others with confidence.

I will remain forever grateful to you Nadia for helping me to resolve a difficult employment situation.

Audrey O’Farrell,

We have engaged Nadia to act on our behalf while resident in Singapore. Nadia has a superb understanding of Singaporean law and a great knowledge of all its intricacies.

Your work done as a lawyer to reestablish the relationship with my child is priceless and I appreciate it very much.
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the assistance you have extended me unconditionally.
