Samuel is very professional and sincere in providing advice to my company. We’ve benefitted a lot and able to focus on our business rather than legal issues. Would definitely recommend Samuel to my business friends if they need advice on legal matters.

Donald Wee,

Yuen Law represented us in our acquisition for F&B businesses. The acquisition process had some unexpected complications and Yuen team handled it professionally. The team worked closely with the sellers to ensure that all legal requirements were satisfied and the acquisition went smoothly. They addressed & responded to all of our needs and questions promptly. We would like to thank Samuel Yuen & his team for their dedication and professionalism.

Ronald Wee, CEO, WEROC Group Pte Ltd,

By offering in-depth legal knowledge, a strong partner participation and excellent strategic advice, Yuen Law establishes close relationships with clients and scores with its broad capacity and sustained quality. Yuen Law provides responsive, business-oriented, swift and clear advice and always able to meet tight deadlines. By setting up a new fintech project it was essential for us to structure the future holding over more than 5 jurisdictions, as well as to complete trademark and other IP registrations. The creative and solution-oriented Samuel Yuen led advice on structuring and various corporate and finance matters.

Kirill Lelchitskiy, LL.M., Chief Legal Officer, Cashwagon Pte. Ltd.,

Needed a firm who could help with legal documentation for our startup accelerator. We therefore needed someone with specific experience in this area, and also needed a firm that could work fast and be flexible on a budget. Specifically, we needed draft event Terms and Conditions and Investment Agreements.The team was responsive and friendly. Typically, documents and advice was turned around quickly, with follow up queries answered promptly. I would recommend your services to others in Singapore in and around the startup industry – both to corporates and startups needing advice.
