I attribute my longevity in practice to clients who have become my friends
I stumbled into National University of Singapore law school in the late 80s, having eliminated all the other courses that I did not want to study. Upon graduation, my ex-boyfriend (now husband) insisted that I should give practice a try. I have been in practice for over twenty years, although my original plan was to leave after three!
I attribute my longevity in practice to clients who have become my friends, and who value me for delivering quality professional service in a timely manner.
In the last 10-15 years, my practice focus has been banking and finance in the Singapore market, with particular emphasis on the real estate sector. In the course of my career, I also found time to get married, have two children, and travel quite a fair bit with family and friends. Now that my children are older, I have found time once again to engage in my favourite past time - reading.
If I did not enter law, I suspect I would most likely be a historian or an obsessive compulsive copy editor!
