Me in a minute
I believe that strong relationships are the hallmark of effective practice and hence I fight tooth-and-nail with my team for a client's best interests
I have a passion for this profession because every day is a chance to learn and grow. I enjoy the process of putting coherent thoughts onto paper, and then to translating the written into the spoken. To trawl through pages of legal research for answers. To glean insights from different perspectives and craft the best solutions for each situation.
Having acted for clients in a variety of civil, commercial and family matters, I am sensitive and responsive to the dynamic nature of a client's needs. I believe that strong relationships are the hallmark of effective practice and hence I fight tooth-and-nail with my team for a client's best interests. Amongst my most memorable experiences in practice would be working night and day to make sense of thousands of WeChat messages; or to complete substantive closing submissions to set aside a sham settlement agreement.
Beyond that, I am a frequent volunteer with the Legal Clinics run by the Law Society of Singapore. I have always found deep meaning in helping others and being equipped with legal knowledge places me in good stead to contribute in my own way.
