Anonymous,

The partners and I had to raise capital from a small group of investors. This creates the need for elaborate investment structures and the appropriate corporate governance mechanism. Yuen Law was very patient and meticulous in helping to operationalise our broad concept on the structure with its legal expertise, providing excellent value in its services to us. I believe such an excellent service made available to smaller investors is required to ensure a greater vibrancy for the small businesses M&A

Anonymous,

We are lucky to have Samuel to help on our needs, he is friendly, patient and always answer the full details of your questions, not like other lawyers sounds arrogant and not easy to approach.

Higly recommend Samuel and his team Su.

Shermaine,

Although having already incorporated a small company we were seeking advice regarding structural arrangements and certain core contracts and agreements. Having contacted a number of law firms we were, following our discussion with Samuel and his team, impressed with Yuen Law’s knowledge, professionalism, and an approach that exhibited a feeling of genuine interest in us. Our impressions were confirmed by a business associate who was an existing client of Yuen Law.

The team at Yuen Law, Michelle Chan in particular, have been particularly responsive and available in addressing our requests and enquiries – providing us with excellent and timely advice and in setting out options available to us. For these reasons we would be more than happy to recommend Yuen Law to any company or individual seeking legal advice and support.
