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.
