Lim Kim Hong, fondly known to all as Kim, obtained her Law Degree from the National University of Singapore in 1987. She was called to the Singapore Bar in March 1988. She worked in 4 law firms before she finally decided to set up her own practice Kim & Co [KNC] in January 2004 in order to have more personalised service with her clients.
KNC is a small boutique law firm which offers full-service including general litigation [civil, family and criminal], general solicitors work inclusive Lasting Power of Attorney, drafting agreements, providing Legal Opinions, probate and administration, wills, trademark registration, Security of Payment adjudication issues and conveyancing. Suffice to say that KNC is a one-stop service law firm which caters to all your needs.
Kim is also the company secretary to more than 12 pte ltd companies. Kim is also a Commissioner for Oaths and a Notary Public and we offer door to door services, if required.
Everyone who meets Kim can say for sure that she is truly a lawyer with a human touch. She is a competent leader with extremely quick, analytical and inter-personal skills and she displays vast level of confidence which makes her a good advocate in Court. She listens to all her clients’ concerns which she then translates to the best possible course of action to the best interests of her clients. In short, she always puts the interests of her clients before self and therefore, look no further if you need a lawyer who truly understands and caters to your needs.
In this area of law, the clients are emotional and highly affected by their circumstances especially where there are children issues concerned and there are livelihood issues to ensure that they have a roof over their heads.
They need someone who empathises with them, is able to lend a listening ear and to help translate all their feelings and concerns into writing so as to be able to reach out not just to the Courts and the judges but also, to their partner or spouse. More often than not, as they are emotionally charged, they are not able to see things in an objective manner and when the circumstances turn acrimonious which it normally does when they have already turned to lawyers, they need an objective person to help to reach out to the other party as well.
In divorce matters, the ultimate goal and objective is to reach an amicable solution of all matters without having the client and their children permanently scarred by the entire court process which can turn pretty ugly.
We advocate an alternative dispute resolution in the form of counselling first and then, mediation between the lawyers and the parties and if all else fails, then to attend third party Mediation which is usually conducted either in the Singapore Mediation centre or the Law Society Mediation Scheme.
However, we do appreciate that it takes two to mediate and come to a settlement and if mediation fails, then, we will have to put forth the best case forward to the Courts and the judges. The best case forward is not one that is measured in terms of dollars and cents. It is one which is fair and equitable in the circumstances of the case, which in any event, will be the yardstick measured and decided by the Courts and the Judges.
Kim has been a divorce lawyer with 32 years of experience. She is fully equipped with the necessary traits and personality to represent the client in his or her best interests and to bring the matter to a fair resolution.
We are able to take instructions on the spot, analyse your concerns and prepare the necessary court papers to address your needs. In most law firms, this will mean taking a span of a few weeks for the same to be prepared but we understand that time is of the essence in such matrimonial matters and we pride ourselves to offer fast, prompt and efficient service at all times.
The preparation of an Affidavit can be prepared on the spot and will be fine-tuned based on furher instructions to be given. The same speed and prompt service will be given when there is a need to file a reply Affidavit in such court process.
All these translate to time efficiency which means costs savings on your part.
Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)
Insofar as Lasting Power of Attorney drafting is concerned, it can also be done on the spot so long as the relevant information is given and is available.
All this translates to time efficiency which means costs savings on your part coupled with the fact that for most clients, they wish to have their LPA settled in the fastest manner and efficiently without mistakes being made.
We are listed in the TOP TEN lawyers who offer LPA services in Singapore so look no further if you are looking for fast, efficient, competent and reliable lawyers for your needs.
Usually, LPA drafting goes hand in hand with making a will and we are able to get both legal documents done together in one attendance which will save time and money to the clients.
KNC is a small boutique law firm so we do not offer major corporate services like takeovers and mergers. However, we cater for the common lay individuals and SMEs which are often boggled with the legal terms and phrases used in commercial contracts like Joint Venture Agreements, Sale and Purchase of assets and shares Agreement, Employment Agreement, Licence Agreement and the like.
We have been providing a personalised service in reviewing contracts on a piece meal basis for the past 16 years since the inception of KNC. In addition thereto, we will normally offer a revised Clause if we are of the view that any term or Clause in such contracts are unfair and/or inequitable and recommend additional Clauses to offer protection to the clients if absent.
Our rates for contract review are most competitive and the turnaround time is fast and efficient which will complement the clients’ needs and requirements.
In addition, Kim has been a company secretary for many pte ltd companies since 2004.
Apart from the usual corporate secretarial work, we provide legal advice and opinion on corporate matters as well. Our costs and turnaround time for drafting contracts and contract review are competitive and fast.
