Some client feedback:

He is the most important organiser of this case. He is mainly responsible for understanding all the cases with the client, using the referee’s thinking to organise the team to defend and counter-claim. At the same time, he is proficient in Chinese law and familiar with Singapore law, providing excellent services for case management.” – Euromoney Asialaw
