Commercial & Civil Disputes

At Yuen Law, we pride ourselves on being practical problem solvers for our clients, as we creatively approach matters and look at them from fresh angles. However, there will be situations where litigation is the appropriate or only option.

Our extensive experience in corporate work naturally leads to our ability to handle complex commercial disputes. Our lawyers have significant experience at all levels of the Singapore courts. And because our clients operate internationally, so do we, performing all roles from overseas enforcement to litigating across multiple jurisdictions.

We think of ourselves firstly as business people, and understand the challenges of running a global business. We know our clients as people, intuit their specific interests, and provide litigation options so they can choose the best ones moving forward. We do this for every client and every case. 

You can come to us regardless of your industry, whether as an individual or as an organization, and at any stage of the dispute. We have represented and litigated for the following types of cases:

  • Shareholder & corporate governance disputes
  • Contractual disputes
  • Breach of trust
  • Employment disputes
  • Medical negligence 
  • Personal injuries
  • Defamation and libel
  • Injunctions
  • Property-related disputes

Arbitration, Mediation & Negotiation

Most clients recognise the financial and human costs of protracted litigation, and if there are other ways we can get a satisfactory result, we would always explore them. Yuen Law has extensive experience in mediation and negotiation. We conduct cost-benefit-risk analyses of going for mediation and negotiation vis-a-vis litigation, and would only choose mediation or negotiation if we’re sure it’s most advantageous for you to do so. 

Many local and cross-border commercial contracts today specify arbitration as the primary mechanism for dispute resolution, especially in the construction industries. Yuen Law has helped many clients in complex international arbitrations, as well as in local arbitral tribunals at all levels. We are familiar with the UNCITRAL, ICC and SIAC arbitration rules. We guide clients through all phases of the arbitration process, from crafting dispute resolution clauses to local and overseas enforcement of arbitral awards.
