We have been working with Yuen Law since organizing our first ever event in Singapore in 2016 that was an international investor-startup conference of 2,000 people. Samuel and his team helped us with the agreements, and gave plenty of consultation on matters big and small. There was no question we couldn’t ask them and no matter too big for them to resolve. Samuel and his team felt right away the right persons to work with – they understood very well the challenges of a small non-profit and were able to read well the startup mentality we had. We highly appreciated the friendly and helping attitude of the whole team. We worked closely with Samuel and Jennifer who are rock solid professionals and were able to give us great advice – and they do everything with a customer-first approach. I can highly recommend Yuen Law to companies big and small, especially to startups that are looking for a legal partner that understands what a startup is going through.

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 was 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 who cares about their work.

Fung Peen provided good insights and practical advice on the selection of our donees for our LPA, and the selection of guardians and trustee of our estate. On the day of signing of our wills, the lawyer ran through a couple of scenarios, so that we could really think through what we want to happen under each scenarios.Fung Peen was patient to answer all my concerns. I felt comfortable and was able to trust the sound and logical advice given. I was also pleased with the meticulous administrative service provided by the support staff, who repeatedly checked and ensured the smooth documentation of the LPAs and wills. I had a very positive experience with Yuen Law and I will recommend their services. Fung Peen and Serene were outstanding.
I first met Samuel Yuen during a corporate action transaction where Samuel was the legal adviser. Samuel remained helpful, approachable, responsive and resourceful in spite of the stress and pressure. Professional, forward looking and positive minded, he never once forgotten to exceed his clients’ expectations and will always be there to provide the best commercial alternatives and solutions. Samuel is committed and supportive of his clients, pragmatic and commercial minded when dealing with issues in the business context. A competent lawyer, his friendly and approachable character makes him a truly outstanding lawyer.

Doing a will is actually easy with the help of a lawyer. I have been putting it off, thinking that it was difficult and cumbersome to execute. I attended a talk conducted by Yuen Law on Estate Planning. Mr Lim Fung Peen encouraged the audience to make the process of distribution easier for their love ones by taking a simple step to get the will done as soon possible. Mr Lim’s follow up was excellent. I submitted my details to Yuen Law and the next moment, I was at Yuen Law’s office signing my Will. Mr Lim made the effort to explain the key points of the Will. To my surprise executing a will was so simple, and not complicated as I had thought. We work hard to ensure that our love ones are provided for in rainy days, it would be prudent to make the distribution process simpler for them. I encouraged you to spare this little time to get your Will done with Yuen Law.
Yuen Law is prompt and professional. They provide good quality legal advice and services. I would recommend Yuen Law without any hesitation as the firm is very sincere and small business friendly. They take a great deal of interest in understanding a company’s problems and provides direct solutions to problems. The team, Samuel, Cheryl and Jennifer as a whole are a bunch of rock stars and work together closely to solve our problems in a timely and professional manner.

My divorced was finalized a few years ago, I am grateful that Fung Peen “held my hand” and provided expert guidance and advice throughout that very difficult experience. Fung Peen always kept me informed and took pains to make sure that I fully understood the legal process, my options and the consequences of each option I took. Talking to Fung Peen was like talking to a friend. I was impressed at how Fung Peen was always so well prepared and meticulous in terms of presenting the information/facts needed to support my case.
We were always keen to have a will written, but due to a lack of knowledge and fears of a hassle, we have been putting it off. So when Fung Peen approached us to write a will, his professionalism, and caring attitude helped allay our fears. We were unsure of what to state in a will, especially when it came to the appointment of the guardians for our children. Fung Peen was very patient and understood our worries and recommended us an appropriate will suitable for couples with young children. Fung Peen helped us realise the importance of handling finance matters. Fung Peen is sincere, non-judgmental and understands our concerns completely. His approach is gentle and caring, always providing a clear and sincere perspective.

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, Cheryl and Shannon has been a pleasure. I therefore highly recommend the firm.
