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.
