Understanding Client’s needs to deliver quality and effective legal services

Private Clients, International Real Estate and Investment

The practice group assists clients in two aspects, wealth/estate planning and real estate. We assist clients with their asset wealth and estate planning. Working with financial planners, we set up trusts and other structures to help clients achieve these objectives. We also undertake the drafting of wills and Lasting Power of Attorneys for clients so that their estate and assets can be better protected and managed. With respect to estate matters, we undertake the application to courts for the grant of probate and letters of administration.


As for real estate, we assist clients in the purchase and sale of their properties in Singapore and worldwide. We also advise on structures to hold property assets for our clients’ varying needs. As the firm has a regional focus, our practice group also assist our clients in the region for their property needs. Working with our associated firms, we have acted for clients purchasing and selling properties in China, Malaysia, Indonesia and other ASEAN countries.


We have acted for individuals, developers, funds, corporates and foreign buyers. Our experience covers residential, commercial, industrial as well as land sales and financing. We are currently on the panel of several banks and work closely with many boutique agencies for property management for our clients.


We also assist in drafting and reviewing of tenancy agreements. We act for many corporates and advise them on their lease requirements negotiating with landlords on their various needs. We have negotiated on clients’ behalf with large developers, JTC, HDB and other landlords for commercial space, retail space, factory space, power plant land, waste treatment plant and other commercial use.


We also act for Management Corporations advising them and subsidiary proprietors on the Building Maintenance and Strata Management Act. We also advise on compliance with the BMSM Act and other regulations.
