Nicolas Tang,

I am an attorney based in New York specializing in International Law and Commercial Law.

Recently, I had retained the services of Nicolas Tang of Farallon Law in a United States court action involving a party residing in Singapore.

Mr. Tang and his firm flawlessly handled the proceedings.

His team was extremely efficient in the action and knowledgeable in seeing the matter through to a successful outcome.

Our U.S. client is forever indebted to them, as I am, for their professionalism, kindness, and, of course, result.

I and my colleagues will only retain Mr. Tang’s firm should the need for local Singapore counsel arise again in the future.

Allen M. Lowy, Attorney at Law,

We found Mr Nicolas Tang online, and never regretted ever!!

We definitely recommend Mr Nicolas Tang for his professionalism, approachability and immense dedication to his work and his clients.

Mr Nicolas has guided us well through complicated legal principles and deliberates carefully every move’s outcome possibilities and probabilities before any is taken. He sees the big picture and strategies the path forward and involves us in the thought process throughout.

Mr Nicolas also gives full consideration of our thoughts and feelings which were greatly appreciated during this onerous process.

Talk to him and you too will not regret!

Richard Koh,

I highly recommend Nicolas Tang. Coming from the US but needing counsel in Singapore was daunting, but Nicolas’ English was perfect.

And when I say perfect, I mean better than my own. :-).

This was for an emerging technology and Nicolas and his team we’re able to understand what was a very complex issue.

HIGHLY recommend!

Jason Redwine,

I am extremely grateful to my Senior Legal Counsel, Nicolas Tang of Farallon Law Corporation, for his tireless dedication and professionalism.

From the start, he advised me on all the possibilities and pitfalls, and with great clarity and detail. He looked out for me every step of the way and I felt secure in the knowledge that he had an amazingly effortless grasp of all the complexities of the case.

He also helped me keep calm and clear-headed whenever I was flustered, angry or upset.

Most importantly, he helped me see that I should seek justice with compassion, and not revenge. The past 100 days, you have seen me evolving mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Nicolas, you have opened my mind to alternative ways of solving my problems.

Thank you for teaching me to live in joy, not just for myself, but for others, too. Your dedication and values in your profession inspires me. Thank you for giving your best.

Karen Ho,

Beyond expectation. Efficient, detail oriented, considerate, knowledgeable …
We were very fortunate and happy to run into Nicholas’ firm in dealing with SG legal system, not easy for an expat. He clearly knows how to make and present a case.

John S. Chang,

Nicolas represented me through a criminal prosecution. At the beginning, the situation was bleak. Nicolas expertly analyzed my case, and made me aware of options I was not aware of. He helped me to understand the possible outcomes and make an informed decision about pleading or going to trial. He was also tactical and strategic, recommending alternatives when roadblocks were put in place. I would recommend him to anyone looking for detailed and intelligent representation. Throughout my case, I felt that he was going far beyond the basics, thinking of arguments and legal tools to represent me. The outcome was favorable, and I could not recommend him more.

Connor,

Nicolas did a great job with my case. Although I came to him very late in the process, he did good research and worked hard in defending me. His advice was sound and professional. At the end, we won the case.

I am glad that I found Mr Baiross to advise me on my legal issues. He was also very responsive via his WhatsApp when I have certain doubts. He knows his legal stuff well, his explanation made me understood my position clearly & the next action I should take. His experience & confidence really gave me the assurance that I was getting the right legal advice. I sincerely thank him for his help & advise.

Raymond Lim,

I’m so glad to have this contact. Mr Baiross didn’t attend to me personally but his team of lawyers were excellent! I called them on tenancy issues. They got a lawyer who is expert in this field to help me almost immediately within the day!

Amazing to have such efficient lawyers. Very humble and helpful. I can’t recall the names but there’s 2 lawyers who called me back. My landlord finally agreed to the novation and didn’t use their service at the end but they were impressive! Now I know who to contact for legal engagement!

Linda,

Baiross is very approachable and gives useful advice regarding matters from different angles and goes about the execution efficiently. He is also very reasonable in his fees. Am grateful for his considerate personality and professionalism.

JohnTay,

This is my first court case but with the help of Mr Baiross, he gave me a very clear picture of whats needed and steps to take to handle it. He takes his time to understand the case thouroughly and provide any help needed. I am very fortunate to have seeked his advice given his busy schedule. Even though i do not have the funds to seek his help for the court case given my situation, he still helps with whatever possible to ensure it goes well. Money is not his first priority, but his clients are. I cant thank him enough and i do hope i can settle my problems with my previous company fast enough so i can seek him as my lawyer and guide me through this case.

Jiang wei qi,

Mr Baiross is an excellent Lawyer who doesn’t do his professional work just for money. I believe he’s a rare breed among the Lawyers. He’s not doing it for the money but rather to help the individual overcome his problems. He’s the first lawyer that wants to solve your problem rather than give you the run around and make money from you.
Personally , I strongly believe that this lawyer has character and values. In my engagement with him, despite his busy schedule , he doesn’t short change you and makes sure you are adequately answered and he has clarified all your questions before he ends.
I am really very appreciative and grateful to Mr Baiross for his invaluable advice and guidance during my difficult period. Some one that you can trust and go to in times of need.
Given his great professional qualities , he’s still humble and down to earth . I really respect him for that , and I would strongly recommend him to all my friends and family who are in need of any legal help.

Pandian,

I have been consulting Mr Baiross on various legal issues over the last year. He is a very hands on lawyer well versed in the ways of the courts and possesses a wealth of practical experience in handling dispute resolution. At all times he and his youthful team are very approachable and sincere in their legal advice. Response times to my queries are near instantaneous on electronic media. His opinions are cut and dry and unambiguous with no pretentions whatsoever. I strongly recommend Mr. Baiross and IRB for legal matters. Charges are always reasonable.

Arjuna,

Great, responsible lawyer who goes the extra mile for his clients. A great listener and never fails to provide you with realistic solutions relevant to your case. Mr Baiross is a lawyer who sympathises and understand his clients. Fees are not an issue with him. He had relentlessly worked on my case and gave me timely updates.
I have personally seen his legal experience and knowledge speak for itself, inside and outside of the court. I will highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal advise. I’m really thankful to Mr Baiross.

Shan,

A fantastic lawyer and friend whom I’ve known of since secondary school days.
Baiross provided quick and succint advise on my recent pending legal situation for me to take steps to protect myself ahead of time.
As the legal proceedings were discontinued due to some mitigating factors, I did not get to engage him to represent me.
Nevertheless, he’s my Number 1 choice to recommend to family and friends and for my personal needs in the coming future!

Shanker P,

Mr Baiross handled my divorce very well as he understood my goals and accurately advised me on my options to achieve them. Along with his colleague, Ms Syuhada, I felt like I was in good hands and was kept informed on the progress at all times.

KS,

A lawyer who puts your interests first.

Mr.Baiross is exemplary of truthful, straightforward and honest legal work in Singapore. He is firstly a listener, he doesn’t jump the gun to offer you solutions without listening to your situation in its entirety and your intent. Even when I blatantly told him I actually have another lawyer who has already seen my case and offered a solution, he simply offered to give a second opinion with no obligations. And my decision to take him on after meeting him was something I don’t regret to date. I have encountered many incidents where my legal representatives were more interested in chalking up my fees as opposed to my own interests in my case, Mr.Baiross is one such person who has changed my perception in that matter. For him, me and my case came first, fees was secondary to that.

But don’t be mistaken, Mr.Baiross is brutally honest, he doesn’t raise false hope, and tells you his legal advice however unpalatable, in the clearest possible way. And his extensive experience simply speaks for itself the way he foresees the opposing party reacting, the legal action they would take.
And his responsiveness (i.e. to my queries, sending legal documentation on my behalf ) was one of the fastest I have encountered in the legal landscape in Singapore. What started out as a legal ordeal for me, became a breeze thanks to him.

And till date, I have recommended all my acquaintances who have needed legal help or just some legal advice to him. Every single one of them has returned with nothing but praise for him.

AJN Kumar,

Great lawyer.

At first when i first met him , he looked really strict & hard to talk to. But after talking to him , i felt confident that i can depend on him to deal my case. He was so understanding & patient. He took the effort to come down and meet me directly and liaise with me on my case details. Very efficient & as he promised he closed the case in 2 months time. This wouldn’t have been possible without a good lawyer. I will forever be thankful to Mr Baiross.

Nisanthi Mahindran,

The best law firm that i ever found. Mr. Bairos provide excellent consultation services and understand the client’s problem well. His continuous communication with client is highly appreciated. Thank for google which enable me to locate this law firm. I have settled peaceful and those credits definitely goes to Mr. Baiross and the team for the great effort in solving the issue. Thank you once again. I would recommend anyone who has legal issue to consult this excellent law first .

George Arokiasamy,

Highly Commendable.
My friend’s unfortunate altercation with the law was handled by Mr. Baiross with great consideration. He was the only lawyer (from the several that we contacted) who manage to understand the situation first before discussing any handling fees.
We are extremely greatful for his help.

Melissa,

I was very fortunate to have Mr Baiross and Mr Devaraj handling my case.
Baiross was the first lawyer (out of several firms I contacted) to respond to me after I submitted my query regarding a bankruptcy application taken out against me. He listened to my situation, and explained to me how he planned to help me achieve my goal in a frank and realistic manner, though of course with the clear insight of someone with many years of experience in this field.
Devaraj handled my hearing. He managed to convince my creditors to give me a grace period in lieu of my immediate financial difficulties, and he did so by explaining how this grace period would be mutually beneficial. Within this grace period, I managed to come to a satisfactory agreement with my creditors.
During the entire process, Mr Devaraj and Mr Baiross would attend to me and ensure that I was kept up to date on this matter which had placed a toll on me and my family emotionally. I am very thankful that through the help of Baiross and Devaraj we were able to settle the matter quickly.

L.N.,

I would like to commend Ms Joanne Giam for exemplary service rendered to me when I sought deed poll services at your firm. She explained the rules surrounding the changing of my legal name and its impact very well. I was also impressed her efficiency and ability to communicate with me effectively the progress of my case.

As a member of public who does not have specialist knowledge in legal matters such as these, I was more than impressed with the professionalism displayed by your firm. Your competitive pricing is definitely a sweetener. I would not hesitate to recommend your firm and your team to anyone I know in need of legal help.

Sheikh M,

We are very thankful and impressed with the legal advice, expertise and responsiveness Mr Baiross and his team of lawyers attended to our case – a dispute in a private property sale. Mr Baiross and his team of lawyers (Ms Rebecca Chia and Ms Roy’yani ) have done an excellent job in bringing the disputed claim to an amicable settlement in a most cost effective manner.

Good lawyers, great service, very reasonable and affordable fee. Highly recommended.

S H Chung,

I am extremely impressed with the level of service, professionalism and quick response time they attended to my issues. i searched the website and based on the reviews given, I decided to contact Mr Baiross for help in the late night. Wow..His assistant Ross was so helpful and prompt in her response and took great care of my concerns even though it was so late in the evening. i felt so thankful and grateful to Ross when Ross responded immediately to my messages and she helps me to get in contact with her boss and his associate Rizuan right away!..when Mr Baiross couldnt meet me due to his tight schedule. I met Rizuan the following day..and he too impresssed me. He had gone through my issues the night before and immediately able to advice me what i should do. i am very thankful to Rizuan for his patience and also listened to my problems attentively. He knew exactly what to do and advised me accordingly. Most of all he didnt charge me after provided me all his kind advice!! He was very kind to follow-up with me after and informed me that if i need any help i can always go back to him. Thank you very much Ross and Rizuan. Mr Baiross..i will definitely recommend your team to my friends who are in need of help. Thank you once again.

Sally,

Mr Mohamed Baiross and his team is not only highly efficient but also effective. Legal advice sought from him is personalised and with great depth of knowledge. Responses are also quick as he met up with me within few hours notice despite his schedule and it is with great honour that I chanced upon such a great man on this website. He is proactive in assisting clients to the best of his abilities above and beyond his call of duty. Truly blessed.

Jerry Tan,

From my first visit for consultation, Ms. Baiross was so sincere and very understanding of my situation. He was outstanding in explaining things to me and I left feeling very relieved. During the legal proceedings, Mr. Baiross listened and absorbed details of my case and my opinion and then made convincing recommendations and decisions. I am pleased with I.R.B. Law LLP’s service and everything has been answered in a timely manner. I had exhausted all my resources, lost my money and had no where else to turn until I got a hold of I.R.B. Law LLP through my relative Mr Raja who is also with I.R.B. Law LLP as Client Manager.

I may not be the “most profitable client” of yours due to my financial situation but I can confidently tell you this.. I am your “most grateful client” and that comes from my heart. I would absolutely recommend I.R.B. Law LLP to family and friends. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Baiross and his I.R.B. Law LLP to anyone in need of their legal process. I am very pleased with the quality, responsiveness and extensive legal expertise of Mr Baiross.

At last, words cannot describe how grateful I am to you and I.R.B. Law LLP for taking my case. Here’s best wishes that your profession brings satisfaction, and pride to you always. Good luck.. Hope everything turns out to be simply great for you!

Thanks for everything..

Thiru,

Thank you Mr Baiross! Really appreciate your help during that hectic weekend.
Mr Baiross is truly a professional and helpful lawyer, like what you can see from all his reviews. I received a letter from a lawyer during a holiday eve, and a really tight timeframe was given to me in responding back to them with the letters. Because this was the first time I have ever encounter this matter, after receiving the letters I panicked and of course worried about it. I went on google to search for clues and here I chance upon Mr Baiross’s name with 50 over good reviews. So I tried my luck in texting him during the weekend, as that is all the time I have left for consultation or help. And Mr Baiross did reply to me the next day even though it was a weekend, with the assurance of help. His quotation was reasonable as I told him I am a freelance that has financial difficulties. His help and assurance did ease my worries and he will definitely be the first person I will introduce to if anyone has any lawsuit case.

Ang,

Awesome Lawyer.Patient and do work with due diligence. Efficient and meticulous.Proffesional and understand clients requirements.Higly recommend.

SEAN,

Mohamed Baiross responded immediately n very helpful and understanding to a poor man arrested n traumatized after two days of police questioning

Ray Ting,

When I received a court summon from a government agency, I was very worried and extremely concern.

Moreover, due to financial stress, I know that I will not be able to engage a good lawyer to represent my case.

Thankfully, I found Mr Baiross and seek his professional services on a pro bono basis. He was so understanding and very kindly extended his services to me without even mentioning any charges at all. For that, I am extremely thankful

Throughout the whole duration of the case, he closely monitors my case and advises his lawyer on the essential.

My case was subsequently settled with the assistance from one of Mr Baiross’s lawyer Mr Ashwin.

It was definitely a pleasure to work with Mr Baiross and his firm.

I would strongly recommend him & his firm to anyone with no doubts.

Goh,

Hereby, I sincerely would like to recommend Mr. Mohamed Baiross, lawyer at I.R.B. LAW LLP.
I’m a Dutch citizen and approached him for legal assistance in the following case:
A Singaporean restaurant clearly overcharged me during a business visit in the spring of 2016. Despite of multiple attempts to find an acceptable solution for this case, the restaurant simply persisted in not responding to me at all. Then, I was advised to request the Singaporean Small Claims Tribunal (SCT) for a review. The SCT treated the case seriously and offered me all the help I needed with filling in the legal documents required for the procedure. The SCT awarded my claim in an official verdict in January 2017: the restaurant was ordered to fairly compensate me.
However, the restaurant still failed to respond by any means, ignoring the SCT verdict they received.
Then, in April 2017, I approached Mr. Mohamed Baiross for assistance in this debt recovery case. He offered me a more than reasonable deal for his necessary legal assistance. Mr. Baiross studied the documents, immediately took action and successfully contacted the management of the restaurant. But despite of their promise to pay the compensation ordered in the verdict, they failed to keep their promise. Again, Mr. Baiross quickly took action. He expressed his determination in this case (‘We are very disappointed’) and put the necessary legal pressure on the restaurant. With success. The restaurant realized they couldn’t ignore the legal SCT verdict and finally decided to pay the ordered compensation.
This was my first experience with a Singaporean lawyer and Singaporean law. And without any doubt, the Singaporean objective to remain a Nation of Trust simply works. Based on the clear SCT procedure, Mr. Baiross managed to execute the SCT verdict in a comprehensive, fast and effective way. He proves that in this civilian lawsuit, the violator does not get away with it. This mentality should be an example for other countries, including the Netherlands!

Jeroen Laarakkers,

I first got in contact with Mr Baiross in February this year with regards to a debt recovery matter concerning my vendor who had grossly overcharged me. Though the initial amount of my debt recovery was small, this matter was settled within 3 months with a much larger sum recovered from my vendor with the help of Mr Baiross and his assistant Ms Roy’yani.
Unlike other lawyers whom I had approached with regards to my debt recovery matter, they told me it was not justifiable to proceed with the case as the sum was too small to recover. However, Mr Baiross had viewed it differently knowing that I have a good case to fight. Moreover, Mr Baiross was more than willing to charge me a minimum fees to handle this case to make it affordable to me.
I want to extend my sincere gratitude to Mr Baiross and Ms Roy’yani for their valuable guidance and advice imparted to me in handling my case and also the endless time and effort put in to ensure that justice was brought to my vendor.
Well done Mr Baiross and Ms Roay’yani and many thanks again for handling my case.

Khoo Lee Ann,

I am from other country, married in Singapore and our marriage did not worked out, I was going through a lot of pain due to my divorce, I was hesitant at first and didn’t want to fight on my divorce especially that I am not in Singapore.
I prayed whole heartedly to God to help me on what should I do on my case, as I also wanted to voice out what I have been through with my past, even if I am not in Singapore.
I tried to look for a lawyer online and emailed Mr. Baiross, he was very attentive to reply on my queries and very professional, he never failed to answer back my queries for free.
I also got a very good rate from I.R.B. despite the long period of my case.
I many times doubted myself if I have the courage to go through it again and re-live the abuse and humiliation. However, Mr. Baiross and his team are very supportive and listened carefully on my version, It then made me realize that this is one of the best thing that could happen to me because this people ( Mr. Baiross and his Team ) made me realize that if I tell my story then I am free. I had been able to fight it out, even if I am not around.
I lost my self for many years, Mr. Baiross and his team helped me find myself through helping me fight my rights.
I can’t thank everyone enough for helping me get through this.
Once again thank you Sir Baiross and everyone behind. I wish all of you more success.
God bless every one of us and our loved ones.

Bridge,

It is a pleasure to write a review for Mr Baiross. Our first contact was convieniently via WhatsApp. I was able to explain briefly about my parents’ issue. A meeting was quickly set up for Mr Baiross to meet my parents. He seemed to genuinely care about our issue and when we all met up Mr Baiross, he instantly put us all at ease. He listened to our matter intently and gave us advice regarding the legal implications of the steps we were about to take. He was very sincere in rendering his services. We found Mr Baiross to be polite and professional at all times and would not hesitate to recommend his services. In fact, our cab driver overheard my parents and I discussing about the meeting and we immediately recommended Mr Baiross.

Today’s meeting turned out to be a free consultation. Nevertheless, I assured Mr Baiross we would be in touch very soon.

Farah Chaudhry,

I sincerely thank Mr. Baiross for his kind advices (facing issues with my former employment), and for providing an avenue for a clearer sense of direction and options available to those in need. I was weighing the problem alone and in much needed help/listening ear with no one to turn to. His kind advices was comforting, much worries have been lifted off (and sleep have been recovered). He cared enough and even offered to keep him updated throughout the ordeal. Truly, he is Godsent 🙂

Sasha,

Got a text message in less than 5 minutes after submission of request. Service was good. Instructions were clear and procedure was prim and proper. Yes I will definitely recommend him to others.

Eugene Sim,

I first contacted Mr Mohamed Baiross of I.R.B. Law LLP to seek his legal advice regarding an issue concerning my vendor who was reluctant to credit me back some money which he had promised to for overcharging me for some purchases made to his company. Initially, Mr Baiross had provided consultation to me on several occasions on how to handle my case without charging me at all.

Although the recovery sum from my vendor was not huge, Mr Baiross was more than willing to help me fight my case and only charged me a very small fees. Together with his colleague Mr Royyani, they wasted no time to issue a Letter of Demand to my vendor to recover the money. I was very impressed with the professional service rendered to me by Mr Baiross and Mr Royyani in handling my case.

Around the same period, my sister was seeking a lawyer for an application of Grand of Probate. Without any hesitation, I recommended I.R.B. Law LLP to my sister. Mr Baiross’s probate team Mr Sam Foo was assigned to handle my sister’s case. Together with my sister, we met Mr Sam Foo at his office and he patiently ran through the procedure and explained clearly to us the process of application for Grand of Probate. The fees imposed by I.R.B Law LLP for this Grand of Probate application was also very reasonable and much lower than what other legal firms had quoted to my sister.

Both my sister and I are extremely satisfied and felt grateful for the legal sevices rendered to us by Mr Baiross and his team. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Mr Baiross, Mr Royyani and Mr Sam Foo for their dedication and professionalism in handling our cases.

If anyone is seeking for a lawyer, I would strongly recommend I.R.B. Law LLP as they have a track record of providing good services with reasonable cost to their clients as evidence from the numerous online reviews provided by their clienteles.

L A Khoo,

I contacted Mr Baiross to get some early advice about an upcoming divorce, he was very responsive and gave the distinct impression that he cared. I went to see him and he gave me some great legal advice. Once my proceedings go further I would be very happy to have Mr Baiross supporting me.

OM,

Mr Baiross is an approachable and professional lawyer. Despite his busy schedule, he made a real effort to listen to my legal matter and was able to provide good advice within a short time span. I’m really grateful to him for kindness to provide free legal advice for a complete stranger whom contacted him after reading his excellent online reviews. I would not hesitate to engage his services and would highly recommend him any time.

Sharon,

If anyone is looking for a lawyer, I strongly recommend Mr. Baiross from I.R.B Law LLP. Mr. Baiross is a very understanding, patient, trustworthy, reliable lawyer. Unlike other lawyers, he will work out reasonable, flexible and affordable charges with you.

I was introduced to Mr. Baiross to advise me on a company matter and my dispute with the other shareholders. After understanding my case he recommended some solutions and options for me to consider which I chose the option to wind up the company and with his legal expertise and his team efforts I successfully wind up the Company. We agreed on the fees which I find I am comfortable with and most importantly Mr. Baiross will not refused to proceed with the case when I was late in paying him as the case proceed.

Mr. Baiross assembled his team comprising of his partner, Mr. Amirul Hairi Bin Mohamed RawiI and their associate Ms Darshini Yoganathan to assist me. Like Mr. Baiross, Mr Amirul is just as patient and understanding. Mr. Amirul very patiently update me as the case proceed and was able to give me timely legal advices and opinions which help me to understand what is my position at each stage of the case. Ms Darshini assisted in helping me understands with the court process and the requirements. At certain stage, Mr. Baiross, Mr. Amirul and Ms Darshini will meet me to brainstorm and formulate strategies on how to proceed, which they eventually achieved my objective to wind up the Company.

Mr. Baiross and Mr. Amirul will make every effort to update me via WhatsApp and also arrange to meet me personally after office hours to update me if they find it necessary which most lawyers only meet their clients during office operating hours. Mostly importantly I am impressed that even during their annual reservist and in-camp, they make arrangement to meet me after their official reservist hours. In comparison to other lawyers, they are truly responsible lawyer to their clients. Unlike many lawyers I can across, Mr. Baiross and Mr. Amirul do not measure their clients whether they are rich; not so well to do or have financial problem, they will make every efforts to assist their clients in whichever way possible.

Lastly, I like to express my heartfelt thanks to Mr Baiross and his team, Mr. Amirul Hairi Bin Mohamed RawiI and their associate Ms Darshini Yoganathan, who have gone to a great extent to provide assistance and help me achieved my objective.

If anyone has need of legal help, I strongly recommend Mr Baiross, Mr. Amirul and Ms Darshini and his team from I.R.B Law LLP.

Henry Tan,

I have engaged Mr Baiross for a civil issue. It is regarding an issue about someone who did not want to return me back my money. Although it is a small sum, but Mr Baiross and Mr Russell forked out 101% effort into my case. Mr Baiross and Mr Russell handled my case very well. They were professional and let me know the possible outcomes on each situation. Mr Russell was quick in his replies and has a willing heart. Thumbs up to both Mr Baiross and Mr Russell, without them I would not have been able to get back my money.

Jac,

I met up with Mr Baiross and Mr Sam at their Office on 8th Dec 2016 for application of Grant of Probate. Mr Baiross and Mr Sam were very professional in handling the application. Both sat with me and run through the procedure and explained to me clearly the steps of the application and the charges, which I believe is the best among the few law firms I enquired about. There were no hidden charges at all and their service was prompt. Within a day, after I sent out the email query, Mr Baiross contacted me and made an appointment with me. I was comfortable with telling them the issues and they assured me they could get the Probate done within months. In fact, I was surprised when I got a call from the law firm on 5th Jan 2017, telling me to come down to collect the docs.
Mr Baiross and Mr Sam did the application within less then a month. Their services were prompt and they are very helpful in extending assistance to their clients. I was happy and satisfied when I left their office as I found a good Law firm to assist me. I will recommend Mr Baiross’ law firm to my friends if they need a good and reliable lawyer.

Keep up the good work Mr Baiross and Mr Sam.

Jason Pragash,

Mr. Baiross and his client manager – Mr. Rajashekar J – reached out to me immediately when I sent their firm an email inquiry. They provided me with good, sound advice and always conducted themselves in a highly professional manner. I would definitely contact them again in future should I require any legal services in Singapore. Once again, thank you very much for your support.

Christian Klepp,

Mr Mohamed Baiross reached out to me and we had a good meeting going through my case. He gave very good advise on how to approach my issue with my company and it has just been sorted today in fact. He gave me the tools for me to negotiate in a manner to keep both parties satisified and managed to get some of my points through.

I would definitely recommend this service as it is good to reflect with a third party person and get some legal advise instead of entering into a dead-end discussion with the counter part.

Christina Thorse,

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Mr Baiross and his team, especially to Mr Anandakrishnan Retnam, who have gone to a great extent to provide assistance. Mr Baiross had a great deal of expertise in dealing and providing assistance on a case of breach of contract. He always remained contactable and gave advise promptly which is extremely helpful when we are undergoing stress. He was very fair and reasonable in his charges and spoke very truthfully. He gave advise in a way such that it helps to save costs and also cautioned us if we took any steps that may potentially incur losses. His team: Mr Anandakrishnan was extremely helpful and patient when dealing the case. He was always very polite and remained very accessible. Both their assistance proved to be of a great value for me as it really helped to alleviate my stress. For a 1st timer who is totally ignorant of how to deal things legally, Mr Baiross and Mr Anandakrishnan proved to be very reliable and trustworthy. If anyone has a phobia of lawyers and yet need legal help, Mr Baiross and his team from I.R.B Law LLP is definitely a recommended group to seek assistance from. Even if you are a 1st timer, you do not have to fear!! Thank you Mr Baiross and Mr Anandakrishnan for providing the right assistance at the right time which indeed was a great relief in the distress that we were in.

Ashiq Hudha,

Mr Mohamed Baiross and his team, Mr Kannan Nadarajan and Ms Darshini Yoganathan, has helped my family in our times of need facing legal matters against two banks. During this period, my family suffered a lot of pain and stress. Their confidence and quality of work has motivated us to fight harder for our rights. They even worked over the weekend to discuss the fact and matters and did not want to charge me extra fees they had spent. From the bottom of our hearts, we are grateful for their understanding. My family and I are very appreciative for their kind assistance and compassion throughout the entire legal process. We strongly highly recommend anyone that is facing legal issues to engage their services. Once again, a huge thank you to Mr Baiross, Mr Kannan Nadarajan and Ms Darshini Yoganathan for all your faith, knowledge and determination to conclude my cases.

Shirley,

Mr. Baiross and his team provided me with excellent service in settling a commission claim against my ex-employer. I found them to be extremely professional and efficient. I take this opportunity to thank the entire team for their services, special thanks goes out to their Advocate & Solicitor Ms. Darshini for the exceptional support she rendered at every stage of the process.

Divya,

I approached IRB Law for an industrial accident claim and had my claim settled in a very short period. Mr Baiross and his team of lawyers and support staff were very helpful beyond the call of their duty.

T Sabaridhasan,

Mr. Baiross,

Thank you for the excellent service rendered and he was absolutely amazing as I was jobless and have financial difficulty, he gave me alternative ways to get do my case with his team supporting at minimum cost….I am grateful for his kindness for the below average person like myself….

TiJan,

Mr Baiross & his team are very professional & patient. They will take their time to explain the situation to you & always lay out different possibilities for you to choose from, to help you understand better which choices are more feasible. My case was a rather small case but he didn’t give me any less attention and helped me a lot during my case because it was dragged for a long time because of the other party not being co-operative. When the case was finally settled, I never really had a chance to thank him properly. I am very glad that he was recommended to me by another lawyer to have him represent me for my case.

KH,

We would like to thank Mr. Baiross and his team in getting back our money from the defendant in a short period of 2 months. Mr. Baiross and his team follow up our case diligently and provide progress updates promptly. Thank you Mr. Baiross, we can have good sleep now!

Evelyn Yang,

I have started my engagement with Mr Mohamed Baiross and found him to be highly professional and personable. His rates are very reasonable amongst all the quotation provided by all the suggested lawyers on the website.

A grateful entrepreneur,

Mr Baiross and his team helped me with my personal injury claim even while I was in Bangladesh. They explained me all the risks involved in the matter. They also quoted me the fees up front and were very transparent. The team was very helpful and had been constantly updating me. Thanks IRB Law

Md Selim,

The only lawyer who is willing to offer help when others are asking for fees upfront. He looked at my documents and gave me a call very quickly to explain the situation.

A life saviour

ESP,

I made a very silly and ridiculous business deal with an ex-partner and was sued more than a million SGD. Mr Baiross had been very helpful and giving down to earth advices to me. Mr Baiross could have advised me to fight the case in High Court but instead he had encouraged me to opt for mediation and made me understand the reality that I may lose even more should I decide to pursue the matter. Ultimately, I went for the mediation where Mr Baiross and his assistant as well as the two mediators made a great deal of effort that eventually resolved my case at a much lower price to be paid. I wish to thank Mr Baiross and everyone for their efforts.

Lim,

I’ve sent a request for assistance in my civil case and Mr. Baiross was fast and prompt enough to revert first. With detailed advices and low services fees charged, I’ve decided to engage his firm to handle the case for me. Many thanks and great assistance from Mr. Baiross and his team!!!

Cindy Kwok,

I sent a request for a few lawyers and had the chance to have Mohamed answering first. It was a civil dispute and Mohamed reassured me of the consequences. That was very helpful as I was thousand miles away from Singapore when this happened. When back to Singapore, the consequences encountered were what Mr Mohamed predicted. Thank you again for your help, very much appreciated.

Sara,

I was charged under section 294(a) of the penal code chapter 224 , I sought Mr.Mohamed Baiross’s help, and he wrote a request letter to SPF to drop the charge against me and to issue a stern warning letter for the offence I did. The police officers considered and issued a warning letter to me, really he helped a lot, thank you.

Ram,

I just contacted two lawyers and am using I.R.B. LAW LLP, as their reply was the fastest and they answered all my questions. I recommend Mr Baiross to provide legal services.

Jim Lim,

Mr Md Baiross of I.R.B Law LLP actually took the time to meet up personally with us, which we appreciated. He did not just provide lip service. He and his assistant Ms Royyani communicates extremely well with us, thus having good understanding of our needs.

Marziah Bte Mokhtar,

I have been wanting to write this review for the last 5 months. but never got down to penning it. Writing a review can get a bit tricky, because you are always caught up between the dynamics of the service rendered, the firm and the person who was at the helm of it. I too was caught up in this predicament as to which aspect to touch base first, the firm, or the people.

But before I write this review, I would like to quote the words of John Davies who was a renowned American diplomat and lawyer “ True we build no bridges, we raise no towers, we construct no engines, we paint no pictures – unless as amateurs for our own principal amusements. There is little of all that we do, which the eye of a man can see. But we smooth out difficulties, we relieve stress, we correct mistakes: we take up other man’s burdens, and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”

The above quote is what I would like to draw analogy to highlight my experience, I approached IRB Law and was attended to by the founding partner Mr. Mohammed Baiross. I was at the crossroads of my life, with a failing business which was caused by the business climatic changes, heighten debts, failing marriage, and with ailing father who had just suffered a stroke.

My experience with the IRB Law was positive right from the first moment, I stepped into their office. When I consulted with Mr,Baiross, he was attentive, thorough, and helpful throughout a very difficult time of my life. His entire team who attended to my matters right from his paralegal team, to his support staff and associates, was with me at every step of the way with insight and compassion, always responding quickly and effectively whenever any questions or issues were raised by me.

They worked around the Bankruptcy filing, my property sale which was one of the stumbling blocks, and lastly my divorce which also panned out very smoothly. I never did expect to have a mutual consent divorce filing done, wherein my ex would agree to settle matters and work with IRB law to see through the process. The poise and skillfulness with which the matter was handled is something I would like to commend.

Mr.Baiross never once made my ex feel that, she was not being represented, he patiently answered all her queries, even attending to her calls, making her too feel like a client.

All the staff at IRB are amazing, it’s a no frills, yet very professional environment, you don’t get taken over by the occasion and the feel that you are in a law firm. I was reassured at every step of the journey, and my interests were well taken care of. I had the pleasure to work closely with some of the staff, but taking some individual names, would undermine the rest. A firm is not about the founders or its partners only, it’s about the entire team and the experience they bring to you, both on the legal subject matter and the Individual personal experience.

I was informed at every aspect of my cases, and Mr. Baiross was there personally at all times to walk me through everything that came up. One thing I particularly like about IRB, they do not try to milk you out with charges. I remember meeting Baiross the first time, he never did look at his watch once and sat through all my questions patiently. We are all aware, law firms are quite strict about time clocked, and I said to myself then, he trying to get in a client, so first meeting is a generous one. But Mr.Baiross was generous in all his meeting with me, not just personal meetings, but always very quick to respond through his team and has made himself available during times most would consider after hours.

Upon settlement of all my matters, I felt that it was a truly a smooth and comfortable process…I could not have asked for more! I thank and commend Mr. Mohammed Baiross and his team for truly being For the People!! I would recommend IRB Law firm not just as a full service, but a firm which makes you feel a part of it,

I sincerely appreciate all of the help and professionalism shown by your firm. I have developed not only a professional relationship with IRB law, but also a personal friendship and value both greatly.

All the best and God Bless all you guys.

Clive X,

Mr. Baiross and team helped us out tremendously and very efficiently. In just 1 day we were able to sort out and solve a potential big problem (with no charge at all!), and after starting the official process with Mr. Baiross, we were able to achieve an outcome that exceeded our initial expectations. Very patient, Mr. Baiross and team were always available over message or phone, to sort out any questions and provide timely updates. It was great working with him and will recommend for any future related business.

John C.,

I would first like to say that if it wasn’t for Mr Baiross I would not be able to go through the whole ordeal of fighting back against my ex employer. Apart from sound legal advice, Mr Baiross also supported me whenever I lacked confidence and offered kind words when the situation became very stressful. It has been 4 months of fighting back and we are finally seeing the finish line. I owe a peace of mind, a fresh start, and my health to Mr Baiross and his dedicated team who worked overtime to make this happen.

Anna C.,

Mr Baiross offered me professional and helpful support and advice. I will use his services in the future if in need of any legal advice.

Thank you for your help.

Viorel Serb,

I met the lawyer Mr Baiross. He is a nice and patient man who helped me alot in all kinds of things. Even though I’m having a hard time with the fees, he helped me in many ways. With the help of a kind-hearted person like Mr Baiross, I hope everything would go smoothly. Highly recommend I.R.B Law Firm… Thanks Mr Baiross.

Tengku Norhayati,

I consulted Mr Baiross over a legal matter in which I am being called in as a witness for a court inquiry. From day one of meeting him till the end of my court attendance, Mr Baiross was exemplary in providing such a comforting session and advising me on the legal aspect of the matter. He even engaged his junior team to assist me with a mock scenario. I was very drained during the days leading to the court attendance and he was assuring me from Watsapp with comforting words despite him being away on vacation. Very impressed with such a personable and hospitable conduct of this promising lawyer. And not forgetting, he was very accommodative to my request for deferred fees payment. Thank you Mr Baiross – my heartfelt appreciation for all that you have done for me.

Ben,

I just met Mr Mohamed Baiross on 28 Jan 2016.. he is so friendly & accommodating that he will let you feel at ease. As my wife had some issues that were bothering her, I brought her to see him after searching for legal aid through the Internet. My wife is so happy that seeing him, he assures my wife that he will help her to resolve the matter. Thank you once again bro..he is more a friend than a lawyer. I strongly recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice. The most important is that his charges are very very reasonable.

David Leong,

Mr. Mohamed Baiross was extremely helpful and friendly. He provided me with valuable legal services and consultation that rescued me. I now consider him my official lawyer, should I need any further legal services!

Ahmad Adil,

Baiross provided me with affordable legal service at a stressful time when my employment had been terminated. He showed understanding for me and my situation, and had my best interests at heart. With his practical and personal advice, I was able to convince my employer to change the termination to a resignation, a very satisfying outcome. I would recommend Baiross to anyone who has a similar issue as he is familiar with the Singapore legal system (potentially confusing for foreigners such as myself), provides practical advice, is responsive to all enquiries and keeps the client’s interests in mind. Thank you Baiross!

Happy Customer,

My Industrial Accident case was being handled by Mr Baiross and his team. They explained every step of the process clearly to me and settled my case for a good amount expeditiously. Further, Mr Baiross was very flexible with his legal fees.

Vijayan Santhosh,

I live in the UK and needed a lawyer with knowledge of Singapore law.
I contacted Mr Baiross, he was very quick in responding to me.. He gave me clear concise advice and my case was resolved within the month.. He is very efficent and affordable therefore I would definitely recommend his services he did a fantastic job and I couldn’t be happier. This website is really good should you need a lawyer.

Sandra Di Beita,

I would like to say “Thank You” to Mr.Baiross because he is a real and true professional legal advisor. He response promptly to my enquiry and patiently listen and dispenses a clear and professional legal advice to me.. I will recommend him to my friends who needs any legal assistance. Thank you very much, Mr.Baiross!!! 🙂

Michael Hii,

Mr Baiross, we want to say Thank you so much for representing my uncle Kim Leng, you are a good lawyer we believed, after meeting you with my mother at your your office, though i am only 15 years old, i can’t help much or do much to help my uncle, but your words have comforted and means a lot to my mother and family, i can understand and sense your sincerity and helpful to people in need, this is the type of true lawyer needed in our society..thank you Mr Baiross.

Hamada Masahiro, son of Rose Lim. 20 November 2015

Hamada Masahiro,

Guess its fated and the instinct, we were so desperate for help and no directions, financially and physically exhausted, God must have heard our grievances, and he sent Mr Baiross to us. I could feel the peace and trust when my 1st meeting with Mr Baiross discussing on my brother’s case, he really listen patiently and giving me his good advice, he understand our financial condition and he offer us an affordable legal fees, very much appreciate for his kindness, he advice us to stay strong and calm, because I have to be the strong pillar in order to uphold my family… though the case has just started, I put all my trust and confidence in Mr Baiross and his team, Mr NorHakim too. I would strongly recommend Mr Baiross and his service dedicated to whoever in need, trust me, he is very very nice person, most important he makes us feel comfortable and ease of mind, mentally and physically for my whole family going through this very difficult challenging time, we are not alone now, I always believe in Karma and very confidence in him that he will do a good job. Something that Mr Baiross said during our meeting, it really calms and touches my heart and my family too, that is ” i bring you across the river, i sure to bring you back safely”, there are so much of appreciation to Mr Baiross that can’t put into words Thanks a lot to Singapore legal advice and most of all to Mr Baiross and Mr Norhakim.

Rose Lim,

Mr. Baiross is a true professional. He patiently listens & dispenses advice clearly. Will recommend him to anyone who needs legal assistance. Thanks much, Mr. Baiross!

YiLi,

I’m an Indonesian woman currently going through a divorce with a Singaporean. I reached out to Mr. Mohamed Baiross via email (I included my Indonesian mobile number) and not long afterwards, he called from Singapore from his mobile phone to me in Indonesia to my mobile phone.

He spoke to me for a long time on the phone, giving me a clear, understandable and firm explanation of how we should proceed with my divorce case. He impressed me with his deep knowledge in this field and his genuine interest in my case. From the very beginning, he has been giving me clear advice in every step of the way.

Mr. Baiross is very kind, thorough, patient and understanding of my situation. I’m always asking him a ton of questions and he responds to my messages within minutes. He is very helpful and has a comforting confidence that keeps me strong and hopeful during my emotional and painful divorce.

If you’re looking for a lawyer who is looking for your best interest and willing to actually listen to your needs and worries during a difficult situation, without a doubt, he is the one for you.

I am extremely grateful to him for his guidance, support and generosity in helping me get through my divorce.

I highly recommend Mr. Mohamed Baiross and I am more than certain he will do an excellent job for you! Thank you so much Mr. Baiross!

Amira Al Amri,

The legal advice received from Mr. Baiross enabled me to negotiate solution acceptable to both parties in no time.

Thank you Mr. Baiross

Edin,

Mr Baiross gave me clear legal advice and provided excellent service. He and his supporting staff were very helpful and explained each and every step to me in my language Tamil. My case was concluded in less than 4 months time for an affordable legal fee.

Veeramani Vinoth,

He has given us a very clear and helpful advise on my cases. He is such a committed person, whatever he promised on action and steps, he tried his very best to help, and even responded to my queries in the middle of the night. I am very grateful to him as he given hope to individual people like me.

Chow May Seng, Elaine,

Mr. Baiross gave me really down-to-earth advice on handling matters even within the short time-span he had. Dealing with issues need not go into intense litigation trials unless a compromised solution really cannot be reached. He was sincere in sharing with me the pros and cons of going into court litigation. Thank you Mr Baiross!

Thank you, Lyn, for helping us with our EV-SSL certification! Your guidance was seamless and the whole process took us less than 2 weeks… (Our previous lawyer took more than 1 month, and took a lot of explaining on our side as to what this ‘fancy’ EV-SSL thingy was…Having to coordinate with the US certificate provider on US call timing was also a challenge in the past).

Anyway, now our website is now more “trustable” by our users because of the EV-SSL and it gives them a peace of mind that they’re actually dealing with us and not a phishing site!

Thank you also for some of the discussions we had, where you shared with us tips on complying with the Personal Data Protection Act. Much appreciated!

Jamie Blanchard,

I engaged Miss Bhavini regarding drafting of a financial contract for monthly payments. Throughout the process, she was very kind and patient with my requests. Her fees are also very transparent and very timely on her deliveries, even though she has a very busy schedule. She also goes the extra mile to understand fully about her client’s situation and connect with them on a personal level. I am very appreciative of her help. Thank you Miss Bhavini, and hope that you will continue to do well in your career! 🙂

Shanice Leow,

I am very grateful with Ms. Bhavini Shah of Bhavini S Law Practice. She is a professional, reliable and warm-hearted lawyer.

My late father passed on without leaving a will.As a result, my family and I have to engage a lawyer to resolve a legal issue with Housing Development Board (HDB).

My family was required to apply for a Letter of Administration (LOA) with the court. Before I could apply for a LOA,I need to settle with the Appointment of Deputies under the mental Capacity Act for my two brothers.

I found Singaporelegaladvice.com. I wrote down my difficulties and emailed via Singaporelegaladvice.com to different lawyers.

I received a sincere email from Ms. Bhavini Shah. An appointment was made and eventually met up with Ms. Bhavini Shah.

Understanding my difficulties, she has offered to charge me at very reasonable fees. I was further impressed by her sense of justice and standing up for the people who was lost and hopeless.

My family’s legal case was, in-deed, very complicated and did not go smoothly; especially pertain to my brothers’ medical reports for the Appointment of Deputies.

The medical reports put up the doctors of the particular institute were unaccepted by the Judge. Therefore, the reports were sent back to the institute for follow-up action. The institute then quotes for other fees which could easily be charges a sum of five figures.

Ms. Bhanvini Shah took up the case with the institute and successfully to convince the institute to waive off the additional fees.

I am very grateful and blessed to meet Ms. Bhavini Shah. Words cannot express my gratitude , she is a dedicated lawyer who pursuits justice with compassion and determination. Thank You So much.

Mr. Loh,

Engaged Ms Shah service to obtain LOA. Really impressed with her service. Fast, clear and prompt. A lawyer who work in the wee hrs and can be easily communicated via email.

The first meet up really help clear my queries and worries. She explained clearly and in layman terms which help to allay my anxiety.

She will explain in detail and tell u the process and what to expect.

Overall managed to obtaon LOA earlier than expected and pretty affordable.

A lawyer whom you shoyld engage for ur problems.

Thank u for the help Ms Shah.

Zubaidah Ishak,

Ms Bhavini Shah gets the job done and her services are affordable. As my grand-father passed away without a will leaving some shares behind, we instructed her for to obtain (i) a letter of administration and (ii) a contract for a share transfer form, and paid the deposit accordingly. Later on, we found out that we did not need the contract and we forgot about the deposit for that contract. Ms Shah reminded us about it and offered to refund us, without us prompting. I would recommend her services for getting a job honestly done.

Thanks!

Norvin Chan,

I do appreciate her professional and diligent work in getting the Grant of Letter of Administration on my father’s assets that was successfully all finished this month. I will recommend her service to anyone that needs a court order for their family member.

Takahiro Konishi,

Bhavini assisted my family and I in the Resealing of a Foreign Grant and despite working across different continents and time zones, Bhavini delivered a great service and communication was smooth throughout the whole process. I’m very happy with Bhavini and would absolutely recommend her for all related legal matters.

Ai Ling Walker,

It was a pleasure working with Ms Shah Bhavini in getting the Grant of Letter of Administration on my late brother’s assets. Her professionalism gave me so much relief and satisfaction. With reasonable service chargers, I will definitely engage her service again in future. Highly recommended.

Hazrie Khamis,

Ms Bhavini was very professional in helping me to understand the legal process and needed actions from my end to help facilitate the deputy court order in a timely fashion. Despite my minimal knowledge, she was always there to guide me on the next step and also proactive in contacting the relevant personnel. The entire process went smoothly – in fact, a lot smoother than I had initially anticipated. Her costs were also very transparent and reasonable, along with consistent updates on the progress. I highly recommend her service to anyone that needs a court order for their family member.

Stephen,

Bhavini was able to clearly explain legal jargon to commoners like me, and she did so patiently and professionally. It was a pleasure dealing with her. Will engage Bhavini again should I run into any other legal issues. 5/7!

Junjie,

It was a pleasure working with Bhavini. From the start she was very responsive and quick to respond. She assisted me with my legal issues in the best manner possible and I would highly recommend her to anyone else.

Upma Arora,

Bhavini Shah is most helpful, clear, efficient, personable and professional. She guided us, advised us, and took quick action right from the start via emails to Australia, even before any payment for her services.
Her fees are reasonable, and clearly explained.
Her instructions & communications were easy to understand. She liaised with all parties involved without any delay.
Bhavini had a personal touch when appropriate.
As a result, the resealing of Australian Probate for our mothers’ Singapore estate was promptly, painlessly, & successfully completed.
I highly recommend her services.

Wai Kwen Pun,

Very helpful and professional service received from Ms Bhavini gaining access to my fathers estate in Singapore. Her replys were always prompt and her prices also very reasonable. Would definitely recommend her practice in future.

Jenny Clinton,

Ms Shah Bhavini is a very professional lawyer in Singapore. Always quick to reply to e-mails and sometimetimes late into the evening. As my Legal issues was in Singapore and I at the time was either in Thailand or the UK, she attended court proceedings on my behalf so saving me a few trips to Singapore. Always keeping me up to date with the proceedings and I would definitely recommend her to any friends or family who may require a lawyer there. Her rates are very reasonable for a first class service. I can’t thank her enough for the excellent service she gave to me.

Susan Cordiner,

A very professional and efficient lawyer. Always prompt in replying my queries. The whole process of securing my letter of administration took me only a month plus! The whole process was fast and greatly satisfactory! And her rates are economical compared to others i had asked!

Dave Wong,

Being based in the United Kingdom I required a lawyer in Singapore who could act on my behalf to secure letters of administration from the Singapore court.
This practice was very efficient and professional in dealing with the matter and queries were quickly dealt with. I am very pleased with the outcome of the process.

George Irvine,

My experience dealing with Ms Shah is simply a good one. She impressed me further when she responded promptly to my queries, even after payment !

Happy to recommend her services to others.

Liew Teck Seng,

Mdm Shah,

Thank you for your services provided. It was a pleasure to use your services. It is without hesitation I recommend anyone who needs a lawyer to consider Ms Shah for legal advice especially for application for a grant of Letter of Administration and related services.

My recommendations are based on the following reasons:
1. Personality – Ms Shah is courteous, soft spoken, easily approachable, kind, honest, very helpful, etc and much much more. I am sure anyone who uses her services will not regret.
2. Online Services – Ms Shah has a very efficient online service. You will get an immediate reply from her. Your mail will be acknowledged and she will get back to u before the end of the day after her court sessions. You can do all dealings online even without going to visit her at her office. However, i would recommend that you meet her at least once for the 1st time to get to know her. At the end of it all you would have made a good life time friend.
3. Cost Effective – In my search for a solicitor/ lawyer online and through friends in Singapore , I have found that her professional fees are the lowest and most reasonable excluding costs for disbursements which obviously have to be borne by the client.
4. 7 Star services – Malaysians, Singapore PRs, other Nationalities and Singaporeans, I award Ms Shah’s services Star with a 7 Star, as the best available in Singapore.
5. Time – if all documentation submitted and paperwork is in order one should be able to able to extract the LA and Assets schedule within a period of 6 months or less.
7. Recommendations – I will not hesitate to recommend my friends and relatives to contact Ms Shah if they ever need the services of a lawyer/solicitor in Singapore.

Thank you very much.
God bless.

Gurmukh Singh,

Ms Shah. It is by complete happenstance that I called you. After I searched Singapore Legal Advice Web Site to apply for a Grant of Letter of Administration to manage my late father’s estate. You surprised me that you charge a very reasonable fee. Your firm was one of firms that come up. I called you and the rest is history.

Thank you for all of your professional advice and due diligence on my father’s estate. I appreciate all that you have done!
You helped me to understand those legal jargon in easy to understand lingo and I even opt your service to obtain LPA for my mum.
Next time someone asks me if I know a good estate lawyer, I sure know who to recommend!

Daniel Loh,

Ms Shah has been very sincere and kind during our application for Grant of Letter of Administration. She is reachable whenever you have doubts and it is resolved with 100% satisfaction. I have no regrets engaging her as our lawyer. Thank you Ms Shah.

BE,

I wanted to express my gratitude for your efforts and dedication for my staff member’s case. It was quite a confused and upsetting process and I could never thought anyone would stay by my side for this long but you were very generous regarding it. It is really hard to make someone who doesn’t know you believe that you are innocent but you still put all your efforts in clearing my staff’s renewal of EP
I am grateful to you that you took all the stress and restored everything out for me. Your faith, knowledge and determination were something that solves my worries. Thank you.

Sudheer Badar,

My family was looking for a lawyer from the Singapore Legal Advice Web Site to apply for a Grant of Letters of Administration to manage my late mother’s estate and came to know Ms Shah who charge a very decent fee as compared with others. She was very professional, approachable and offer valuable advice to reduce our trips to her and the Commissioner for Oath’s office for signing of documents. This is especially crucial for people who do not have much legal knowledge and often out of town. Within a month, we have gotten the letter from the Family Justice Court. My family and I would like to thank Ms Shah sincerely for her assistance. We will definitely recommend her service to relatives, colleague and friends.

Tan Soon Hian,

Ms Shah charges a very decent fee and was very professional yet approachable in helping my family with the settlement of my dad’s estate. This is especially crucial for people who do not have much legal knowledge. She was also very accommodating to our schedule. My family would like to sincerely thank her for her assistance.

Joe Kwan,

Ms Shah has provided a professional and clear explanation and guide for my questions on employment contract. Her advice was prompt and detailed. I will certainly look at seeking her legal services in future and will recommend to others. Thank you Ms Shah.

Louis King,

Ms Shah helped my family processed the Letter of Administration so that we can exercise our rights as beneficiaries. She explained the procedures in plain English terms that laymen like us can understand. Appreciate these little touches. Recommended her services to several of my friends already.

Jenny Lim,

Thanks to Ms Bhavini Shah for all your assistance and support.

Aneetha Raghavan,

My father passed away in Dec 2015 and I was named the executor of his will. Among other things, I need a Grant of Probate, and in my search for a lawyer I came across Ms Shah’s credential on line and engaged her for the task. This is the first time I worked with her and really don’t know what to expect, but in less then 2 months she completed the task. She proved to be reliable, efficient, engaging, responsive and honest and it is my priviledge to get to know her and to recommend her service for anyone looking for legal services.
My thanks and best wishes to Ms Shah.

Henry Piong,

Bhavini went the extra miles to ensure all the paperworks are in place and to witness the signing added a strong assurance that everything will be smoothly put in place. Thank you very much once again, without your good service, the matter will go pending for much longer.

WW,

Hi, I would like to say a big thank you to Ms Bhavini. She was a very helpful lawyer. Even during the eve of holidays, when I ask her for help to amend the agreement, she took her precious time to do it for me even though her office is officially closed. I would personally recommend her to all my friends as she is not only professional but also person who goes the extra mile to help you. Thumbs up!
Thank you so much Ms Bhavini!

Linus,

Ms Shah assisted with utmost satisfaction and professionalism in drafting the following documents: Prenuptial agreement for my son and his foreign bride to be, Will with a testamentary trust, and a Loan Agreement. I’m glad amongst the choice I was recommended by my company lawyer I chose her. She has in depth knowledge and experience in handling delicate international marriages. I hope to be in touch with her for other legal matters and I will definitely recommend her to my contacts.

Christine Yuen,

Ms Shah is a responsive & helpful lawyer. She displayed her professionalism when explaining things I need to know for will writing. The fees are reasonable & affordable. Glad to have Ms Shah helping me out.

Jacqueline,

Used Ms Bhavini Shah’s practice for advice on a SME takeover transaction. Coupled with sound legal advice, her relative promptness in drafting up the required documents through various rounds of negotiation made matters a lot easier for me. The professional fees was also reasonable, which suited the said transaction ideally. Would gladly recommend Ms Shah’s practice to others – she would be my first point of call for any other legal matters in the future in any case.

Jagmeet Sidhu,

Bhavini was a very approachable lawyer who did up a pre-nup agreement promptly and satisfactory.

Steph,

Making the simple will with Ms Bhavini was a breeze.

Julia Hee,

I was searching a legal law firm to issue deed polls. Google search have brought me this website http://www.singaporelegaladvice.com.

I have requested a quotation from this web. Many have responded however as a typical Singaporean you will choose the more economical.

Ms Shah have quoted me SGD 50. She is really prompt in response and execution. She is even willing to meet me after her office hours which I sincerely appreciated.

She has given me a all rounded explanation and what to look out for after I change my name.

She shared with me that 2015 is SG50 and she would like to do something meaningful to help her client. Therefore, she has quoted me SGD50 which makes me want to help someone else also.

Singapore we shall keep up this the kampong spirit.

Audrey Chan,

I helped my brother to engage Ms Shah to do a deed poll for him. Not only was her fees very reasonable (in fact the most affordable out there, with this sg 50 promotion), I was expecting the service might be compromised. But to my surprise, Ms shah was very responsive to my various request to change the appointment time , even when she was outstation.

She got me to email her the different documents needed to process the poll and the Deed Poll was ready for signing when we went down to her office.

She was polite and professional in conducting her service. No question was asked about the need for the Deed Poll and within minutes, it was all done and we were out of her office!

It was such a breeze! She has my highest recommendation for anyone in need of any legal service and advice!

Thank you, Ms Shah!

susie chng,

Being first time in engaging a lawyer, I have no idea on how to find one.
Thank God, for the Singapore Legal Advice service. I am currently engaging Ms Shah Bhavini. She is so helpful and patient in explaining to me the process.

Laila,

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.

My sister recently passed away from an illness, and I engaged Bernard to help me be appointed the administrator of her estate and to inherit her HDB flat. He and his team were very quick in preparing the court papers and obtaining the grant of letters of administration for me. They also patiently guided me on the steps to take with the Singapore Land Authority and the HDB. I also got Bernard to write my will and lasting power of attorney as the experience of administering my sister’s estate reminded me to have my own estate planned for. This was a smooth process. Bernard explained key estate planning concepts to me, including how to select executors and how to distribute my estate. He also told me how to store my will and how to prepare a schedule of assets and liabilities for my executors to more efficiently administer my estate. Bernard is a very dedicated lawyer, with a great team behind him, especially Mariani and Jasher.

Mr. Jeff T,

My wife and I needed advice as we were buying a property and she had already gotten a property before we were married, and the purchase price mainly came from her. She didn’t want to pay ABSD, and so couldn’t be made a joint owner. As I run my own business, we needed some help and guidance on how to make sure that if I went bankrupt, her interest in the property would be protected. Bernard is very knowledgeable in this area, and gave us very clear and practical advice in the areas of bankruptcy, tax, family, trust and property law, and very promptly too. Bernard also helped us to plan for the scenarios where I passed away prematurely, or if there were a breakdown in our marital relationship, to make sure the plan was comprehensive.

Mr. Leonard L, Businessman (Name has been changed to preserve privacy),

My husband suddenly passed away without a will, leaving behind me and our 2 young children. I needed help to deal with his share of our HDB flat as we had applied to participate in the Selective En Bloc Redevelopment Scheme (SERS). Bernard and his team helped me apply for and obtain a grant of letters of administration for my husband’s estate. He guided me on the process, which was not straightforward because of the SERS aspect, and also because I have two young children, which meant that a co-administrator of my husband’s estate was required. Bernard and his team, especially Mariani and Jasher, were very clear in their guidance, helpful and responsive, and I’m glad I got their help.

Ms. Kelly L,

My team and I were acquiring a private company in Singapore recently, and for legitimate business-related reasons, we needed our identities to be kept confidential. Bernard helped us achieve that and to de-risk the process. He advised us on the documentation and process in a fuss-free way, and addressed all our concerns. Would recommend him to any entrepreneur or managers that want a lawyer who’s responsive and who knows his stuff.

Mr. Suryadi H, Entrepreneur with global businesses in countries that include Singapore,

I recently agreed to make an investment in an F&B company thorough a loan, as it needed some short-term liquidity. The company provided me with the legal forms for the loan and security, but as the loan amount wasn’t small, I needed legal guidance to make sure I was covered. I met Bernard through a networking event a year ago, and decided to get him to help. He helped do searches on the company to help check if there was any litigation or winding up and to verify the identity of the shareholder and director who I was in contact with, and he knew exactly what to look out for in the loan and security documents, and identified gaps and ways to plug them. I got the assurance I needed, and paid a fair sum for quick, good work.

Charles N, Director, enterprise solutions company,

Bernard is my go-to IP and business lawyer; he’s helped me negotiate several of my company’s engagements with bank and conglomerate clients, and he also helps me cover the intellectual property angles as my company’s services are very intellectual property-driven. Dependable and gets what the deals are about and what’s important and what’s not.

Kelvin Emmanuel Ong, CEO, Micrographics Data (Document Imaging and Preservation Services),

I was looking to take my company’s business overseas, and needed some help from an experienced corporate lawyer. I had worked with another lawyer from Bernard’s firm, who was an excellent lawyer but who had since left the profession, so Bernard had big shoes to fill. He guided me on the best form of overseas expansion given my business model, as I was not sure if a franchise, a joint venture or a local subsidiary was better. He also helped shape the structure of the deal with our overseas partner, and made sure that intellectual property was protected but without affecting our IP exploitation plans. The documents he wrote were clear and concise. The entire process working with Bernard was smooth and I think he takes it as a compliment that at times, he comes across as a business adviser first and a lawyer second.

Shahlan Hairalah, Principal Consultant and CEO, Sahl International (consultants on Halal certification),

We worked with Bernard when our company was expanding our fast-growing business into Singapore, and needed advice to localise our contracts and comply with Singapore law. He helped us redesign our contracts to be easier to read and to better limit our legal and operational risks. We appreciated that he and his team explained legal concepts patiently and clearly, and were fast and responsive. I will not hesitate to recommend Bernard and his team to other business managers and owners.

Natasza Kurniawan, Project Manager, Bride Story (Wedding marketplace, directory and exhibition operating and management company),

I was making an angel investment in a tech startup and needed guidance from someone familiar with startup investing. Bernard charged me a reasonable fee to advise me on how to protect myself, and to help me prepare an agreement to implement that advice. He clearly knows the startup game, and gave very clear advice, and the entire process working with him was smooth and easy. Good guy to have on your side if you want someone experienced and on-the-ball.

Mike T, Angel investor,

My partner and I were in the midst of negotiating the acquisition of a majority stake in an F&B company for a rather significant amount. As we were provided with terms that weren’t very straightforward, we decided we needed an experienced deal lawyer to guide us to derisk the acquisition. We met with Bernard to see if he could help us. While the deal fell through because the seller changed his mind, we would have engaged Bernard had the deal went ahead. This was because he is commercially-savvy, responsive, and knew his way around a deal. His charges are transparent and fair too. Would definitely reach out to him the next time we come across an interesting deal.

Shaik Qamal, Business consultant and investor,

We brought Bernard in to help advise us on negotiating the terms of a teaming arrangement. Bernard helped us tremendously by clarifying the key IP and legal issues that came up in our negotiation. As we had spent significant financial and other resources developing our proprietary knowhow and IP, it was essential that our IP was not compromised by our collaborations with others. Bernard also took an active interest in our technology and software solutions in order to advise us, which we felt made the difference.

Edwin Ng, Head, Business Development, Aviationlearn (Technology-driven Aerospace Training Provider),

Bernard was recommended to me, and I also heard him speak at a talk on IP law that he gave to the events and entertainment association I’m part of. I got him to advise me on contracting with an overseas singer as my company was staging a live music event, and Bernard knew exactly what key aspects of the contract to focus on, and made sure he became very familiar with the way my industry operates, and managed to translate commercial concepts into legal ones without “over-lawyering”. He also helped guide me on negotiating with the singer’s agent when they made certain requests that I didn’t know how to deal with, in order to manage our risks. Easy to work with, and charges fairly too.

Kevin Paton, Sales Director, Majestic Production (events and entertainment company),

I am an esports team owner and manager, and engaged Bernard and his team to help us to prepare an esports player contract and for general advice on managing the players, as I wanted to make sure I had a solid contract but also because I wanted to be fair to our players. Bernard was responsive and easy to work with. Not only did he make it a point to customise the contract based on my specific needs, he went the extra mile to think of the relevant legal and commercial angles and proposed very commercial and workable solutions. Would readily recommend him not just to any esports professional and entrepreneur but also those outside the esports field.

Terence Ting, CEO, Flash ESports (Professional Esports Team),

I would like to endorse the services and support that Bernard has provided to me and my team. Our firm performs penetration testing and infrastructure security to financial institutions, government and public sector entities and other large entities, and our services are relatively unique. We therefore need a lawyer who is technologically-savvy, fast, understands large corporates and government institutions, and who is comfortable with IT concepts and with reviewing IT contracts. Bernard helps us negotiate our engagements with large corporates and their lawyers, which is often not straightforward because of the confidentiality, data security, IP and other concerns that our clients need assurance on. He’s been an asset, and his knowledge and experience as an inhouse lawyer at an MNC and seasoned technology lawyer has helped us cut out a lot of time wastage and delays in our client engagement process. He cuts through the legal terms and terms, knows his stuff and even sometimes helps me manage my legal costs by telling me which contracts to not bother negotiating and where he’s not able to add value and where he can add value.

Ryan Baxendale, Principal Consultant, Centurion Information Security (IT Consulting Firm, specialising in penetration testing, and infrastructure security),

My startup was trying to raise money for product development and other key matters, and we decided to raise money through a simple agreement for future equity (SAFE). We got to know of Bernard through an online legal services matching platform, and got his help to prepare the SAFE, as not many lawyers seem familiar with this instrument. He was familiar with it, and advised us on key aspects of the SAFE, including pitfalls, and helped us customise it based on what our investor asked for, but not before guiding us on the implications of the investor’s request. We liked working with Bernard, and would recommend his services to other tech startups or businesses seeking someone to guide them on the fundraising process.

Poon DQ, Founder and Head, Butler in Suits (Home cleaning services platform-operating company),

We worked with Bernard when we were launching our concept, which was an innovative and new concept that allows homebuyers to purchase eco-friendly “tiny houses” on wheels to rent out to tourists in scenic places abroad. We tapped on Bernard’s expertise as a commercial lawyer to translate this new business model into workable legal relationships and concepts, to make sure that we launched the business and service in an above-board and transparent manner. He and his team understood our business needs, identified the legal risks and helped us design a bespoke set of contracts and legal terms to manage these risks and protect our company and also set out clearly the relationship with the buyers of the tiny houses. Bernard is a commercial lawyer in the fullest sense, and would be an asset to any business and entrepreneurial team, and we cannot recommend him enough.

Adrian Chia and Dave Ng, Co-Founders, Big Tiny Pte Ltd (Makers of tiny houses, and property managers),

My company needed help from a lawyer experienced in software and intellectual property matters, to advise us on a request from one of our biggest clients. We were referred to Bernard, and were very happy with his help. He’s well-versed in the software development process and explained very clearly the IP aspects of our client’s request, and helped us come up with a solution that was logical and commercially-sound, and we achieved an outcome our client and I were happy with.

Lee Chou Wee, Owner, Celes Solutions (Software development firm),

We recently engaged Bernard to assist us with certain HR-related matters in line with our company’s expansion into Singapore and Southeast Asia, and he was knowledgeable, responsive and committed to understanding our specific needs and expectations. He helped us develop a good understanding of Singapore employment law and practice, and streamlined our employment forms and processes. We would not hesitate to recommend him if asked for one for a good employment and commercial lawyer.

Violaine Blejan and Elmira Khadzhibaeva, , Senior Director Human Resources & Corporate Citizenship, Europe Medline International and Legal Counsel, Europe Medline International (Largest privately-held manufacturer and distributor of medical supplies),

I head the marketing and communications arm of a cutting-edge creative agency specialising in digital marketing, creative content development, and management of creative talent, including influencers, creative directors, photographers, stylists, set designers and other talent.

We roped in Bernard to help guide us on the legal aspects of our unique business model, including to advise on IP matters, and to create and negotiate contracts with our clients and talent. What we were looking for in our legal counsel was someone who got our business and would make sure we were covered legally but without making it hard for us to close deals and manage our client relationships, and Bernard definitely does that.

He is pro-active and concise, and just gets the job done with minimum fuss and maximum effectiveness.

Eileen Keh, Marketing and Communications Manager, Supreme Plus (multi-disciplinary creative agency and talent management agency),

I engaged Bernard’s services to advise me on a joint venture for an overseas expansion of a business, and also for an investment in a technology startup. Bernard focused on key legal issues and made the legal documentation much easier to understand. What I found particularly helpful when working with him is that he is very commercially sound for a lawyer, and advises in a unique way where he focuses on my business objectives and then tailor-makes his advice based on that, and doesn’t simply give “legalistic” or safe advice.

Joelle Chia, Director, Pharma to Market (Pharmaceutical Consulting Services),

I worked with Bernard when the company was launching one of its most revolutionary products in Singapore. It was being rolled out to our distribution channels here, and we needed a good commercial lawyer to help us to make sure our agreements with customers and distributors protected us. Bernard took the time to understand the product liability risk and our distribution plans and made sure our contracts covered these. He was very thorough when customising our standard terms, but still completed the review and advice well within the deadline. He’s easily contactable and responds quickly, and we have gone back to use his services a few times and have always gotten what we needed.

Samuel Chua, Marketing Executive, Sonova Singapore (Swiss-listed maker of hearing care solutions),

Bernard helped my company with an important project that we were awarded, and brought immense clarity and timely guidance to us by helping us understand the client’s terms, what the legal risk implications were and how to negotiate. He was easily contactable, made sure to understand our business and the project details, came back quickly to our questions, and knows his stuff.

Alysha Lentholm, Operations Manager, PHG Oilfield Services (International oilfield consulting and industrial training services),

My team and I were embarking on a corporate joint venture with a large Chinese company to develop a new product and to break into new markets together. As this sort of strategic alliance was new ground for us, and because the JV terms and mechanics were not straightforward, we needed an experienced and commercially-savvy lawyer to guide us on the negotiations and to paper the deal. Bernard understands technology and IP, which was essential, as the key value drivers of the joint venture were the IP and technology of the Chinese JV partner. He helped us cross the finishing line over an intense few weeks of negotiations with the JV partner and its lawyers, simplified the deal for us, and helped us make key decisions quickly. I’m glad to say that the joint venture is working out very well, and we’re grateful for Bernard’s help in getting us off the ground.

Gerald Cai, Managing Director and co-Founder, MXR International (Singapore Media technology company with operations in PRC),

I am the general counsel of a fast-growing fitness business. We were getting a lot of traction by running our gyms with a revolutionary approach, and looking to grow our overseas presence. We were raising funds and got in touch with Bernard to help us tidy up our growing share capital table. He understood exactly what we needed, from a business and legal angle, and helped us with our legal documents in a very business-driven manner. While I’m legally-trained, my CEO and I appreciated an extra pair of eyes and hands, and Bernard was instrumental in helping us design and document our incentive programme for the early stakeholders. He is very responsive and is always a pleasure to deal with.

Luo Ruizi, General Counsel, Cheat Day (Owners and operators of the Ritual-branded gym and international franchise),

Bernard helped my design agency prepare a customised employment agreement as we were looking to expand our team, and wanted to bring in some senior and experienced professionals. He did not simply churn out a “template” but took the time to really understand my agency and industry’s features to prepare the exact legal terms that I needed, especially to help us protect our IP, customers and vendor relationships, and he also helped create a solid incentive package for the agreement. I liked that he’s not only a seasoned employment lawyer but also that he’s very familiar with IP law, as my company is in the creative line, and IP protection and ownership is very important for us.

Goi CY, MD and Owner, Lucidity (Multi-disciplinary creative agency),

I was part of a group that acquired the shares of certain Singapore companies operating in the retail line. We engaged Bernard to advise us on the share acquisition, and he prepared the share purchase agreement and helped us negotiate with the sellers. Bernard brought a lot of value to the deal by identifying and focusing on key legal terms, and guided us on which ones to not prioritise. His prior and big firm experience on M&A deals helped us to complete the deal faster than expected, and to help bridge the valuation gap and other expectation gaps between us and the sellers. We are particularly grateful that he worked over a major public holiday just to make sure the deal moved along, but would have recommended him anyway simply for his attention to detail and ability to add value to deal structure.

First and foremost thing about her is that she knows her job, she knows what she is doing. The confidence she possesses in handling the matter is like half the battle won. It gives you confidence and comfort that you are in right hands. She is quite helpful, patient and friendly. My experience of having her as my lawyer taking care of an employment dispute was a blessing in disguise. I went to a few lawyers before meeting her and even after because it was a big deal for me but I couldnt find the right and confident approach as her.

Thanks for helping me with this and taking me out of it.
