Me in a minute

I enjoy legal practice as much as I enjoy gaming - there are always objectives to be fulfilled and I am very excited whenever there is a new challenge

My passion in life is to help people and that gives me immense satisfaction. During my free time, I am an active community volunteer on weekends, helping the needy in my neighbourhood as the Chairman of the Radin Mas Community Club Youth Executive Committee. In the office, I strive my best to help my clients achieve what is commercially and legally favourable for them. My clients are often satisfied with what I offer - a good listening ear as well as practical legal solutions.

I enjoy legal practice as much as I enjoy gaming - there are always objectives to be fulfilled and I am very excited whenever there is a new challenge. Most recently, I assisted Ms Carla Barker in the reviewing of the legal templates for leases and tenancies for Jurong Town Corporation. Our main challenge was to reduce unnecessary legalese into concise and easy to understand terms in plain English, at the same time ensuring that our client’s legal rights are fully protected. In terms of word count, we managed to reduce everything by more than 50%- it wasn’t an easy task but the adrenaline keeps me going.
