Welcome to new Head of Integrated Property Practice Group, Tris Xavier

Yuen Law Welcomes New Associate Director & Head of Integrated Property Practice Group, Tris Xavier

We are delighted to have Tris Xavier join our growing team at Yuen Law as Associate Director and Head of the Integrated Property Team in the Corporate Practice Group.

Tris specialises in Real Property, Intellectual Property and Insolvency law.

He thrives on building interconnected solutions for clients and believes that law cannot be approached in silos but must be seen holistically. Tris’ breadth of experience in diverse fields is testament to his ability to find and finetune effective solutions to solve problems and issues as they arise.

Tris offers legal guidance to clients on various real estate transactions such as sales and purchase of commercial, industrial, and residential properties. His services include drafting and reviewing agreements, loan and financing documents, conducting due diligence and title searches, and advising on legal implications and stamp duties during a sale of property.

Tris is experienced with intellectual property matters and provides comprehensive legal support for protecting and registering clients’ assets, including trade marks, geographical indications, and designs. Additionally, Tris and his team are experienced in managing and renewing international intellectual property portfolios to keep them in good standing.

Tris also brings a strong grasp of the ins and outs of insolvency and restructuring legalities from his years in the Insolvency and Public Trustee’s Office and the Ministry of Law. He provides expert legal counsel for companies and individuals looking to restructure their debt, moving forward when shareholder or financial issues plague the company, or when individuals are looking for a fresh start on their debt. Tris also acts for creditors looking to recover their debt.

In his time as a civil servant, he undertook a breadth of work including court work, policy planning and stakeholder management, and was heavily involved with the 2015 reforms of the then “Bankruptcy Act”, and the 2018 passing of the new omnibus Insolvency, Restructuring and Dissolution Act.

He then joined the Singapore University of Social Sciences as a lecturer, teaching subjects as diverse as Equity and Trusts, Wills, and Constitutional Law, as well as spearheading the inaugural Legal Clerkship Programme.

Tris enjoys explaining and demystifying the law’s implications for businesses and individuals. To this end, he has contributed two chapters to LexisNexis’ Annotated Laws of Singapore (the Constitution and the Moneylenders’ Act). He was also featured as one of Singapore Academy of Law’s “Legal Personalities who get personal on Linkedin“.

“I am delighted to be joining the Yuen Law family and to take the reins of our brand new Integrated Property Practice Group,” Tris says. “With this new addition to our already extensive suite of services, we are poised to offer our clients an unparalleled level of expertise and comprehensive solutions to effectively tackle their challenges. I am eager to work with our dynamic, award-winning team of young professionals to deliver holistic solutions to both our existing and new clients alike.”

“We’re excited to have Tris Xavier on board, and I look forward to the positive energy he brings to the team and his earnest tenacity as he advises clients. He joins us at an exciting time of accelerated growth for Yuen Law as we support clients in a recovering post-Covid economy that definitely has its bright spots,” says Samuel Yuen, Managing Director.
