I’m very impressed with Ben’s service and highly recommend him
I engaged Ben to act for me in the sale of my helicopter business. There were several elements to this deal including the sale of a fleet of U.S. F.A.A registered aircraft, the sale of a trademark, a commercial lease and negotiating several employment contracts. Ben dealt with them all with distinction. I’m very impressed with Ben’s service and highly recommend him. He is fast, efficient and honours his same day delivery guarantee. I also like his business model of paying a fixed fee and never having to worry about a lawyer’s ticking clock.
Comparable to the lawyers from the brand-name law firms I have used in the past
I was hesitant to use Ben because I was wondering how a good lawyer could possibly charge such low fees. But I’m glad I made the decision to use his services when I bought over a local engineering company. The quality of Ben’s drafting and his knowledge of corporate law is comparable to the lawyers from the brand-name law firms I have used in the past.
An excellent litigator, exercising great care and detail in his approach to cases
Ben is our Group's go-to lawyer for corporate legal matters.
Being in the advisory, venture capital and asset management business, we regularly require advice on contracts and commercial matters, and Ben has always provided us with clear, sound and honest advice at all times.
Ben is also an excellent litigator, exercising great care and detail in his approach to cases. We recently engaged him to sue a counter-party for breach of contract and he won the case, with the court awarding damages to us.
Most of all, I have found his business model of fixed price fees to be transparent, reasonable, and accountable, unlike other firms who bill by the hour for drafting, meetings, legal research, phone calls and even answering emails.
Super Affordable Fees
A friend of mine recommended Ben and I decided to work with him for my investment and joint-venture in a wholesale business, mainly because of his super affordable fees. He was patient and attentive during the drafting of the investment and shareholders’ agreement. His drafting skills are excellent and his advice throughout the whole negotiation process was very helpful. When the deal structure changed suddenly and I had to provide a loan to the investee company, he even drafted a convertible loan agreement without any further charges.
I stick with Ben for all my transactions because of the quality of his work
I run many businesses and have used many law firms in the past. Now I stick with Ben for all my transactions because of the quality of his work which I prefer to those I have previously used in Malaysia and Singapore. I get all my documents on the same day and I also see no reason why I should pay more elsewhere for the same service.
flat fee pricing for advice on contracts very value for money
As a business broker, I regularly need legal advice on commercial contracts. I always use Ben as I find his flat fee pricing for advice on contracts very value for money. His letters of advice are detailed yet easy to understand and he tends to propose creative solutions. You should definitely consider Ben if you need contract advice.
Definitely someone you should consider for corporate legal work
We needed someone to draft our shareholders' agreement quickly and to suit our budget. As promised, Ben delivered a well-crafted shareholders' agreement on the same day containing everything we wanted. The follow-up service was excellent. Definitely someone you should consider for corporate legal work.
a simple, no nonsense legal experience that is effective and easy to follow
Unlike other law firms I’ve tried, Ben provides a simple, no nonsense legal experience that is effective and easy to follow. At the end of the day lawyers are here to help you… not make things more complicated and expensive than they need to be.
Very responsive and good lawyer
I hire Ben on monthly retainer for my group of companies to handle all my legal work. Very responsive and good lawyer.
An extremely helpful and passionate lawyer who is always ready to help
Ben acted for me in a commercial investment case and came across as an extremely helpful and passionate lawyer who is always ready to help and advise without being calculating about fees.
prompt action and professionalism
We would like to thank you for the prompt action and professionalism of your law practice.
recommended for contract and employment matters for new business and start-ups on a budget
Ben is recommended for contract and employment matters for new business and start-ups on a budget. We went through many rounds of changes for our employment agreements, shareholders agreement and supplier agreements and Ben didn't charge extra for all the time spent unlike my past experience with lawyers.
I have used Ben on a couple of corporate transactions. He can be gruff at times but if you want someone to get the job done without all the frills then he's the one. Highly recommended.
Love his service and his transparent business model
We got Ben to negotiate and draft all our contracts with our international suppliers for high end fabrics and shoes. Love his service and his transparent business model.
a lawyer of great magnitude who will go through the extra mile for his clients
I was sceptical to use Ben as I am not comfortable with communicating through Whatsapp but in the end I engaged him for a contractual matter. Ben was found to be professional, meticulous, responsive and patient lawyer. He is a lawyer of great magnitude who will go through the extra mile for his clients. When I consulted him on my father's will which was unrelated to the contractual matter, he gave me sound advice and re-drafted the will for free. Honestly, I would not get this from other lawyers who would have just asked my father to re-do his will at extra cost. Strongly recommended and will continue to use his service.
L’Avocat Law provide excellent, no-nonsense legal advice
Lavocat Law provide excellent, no-nonsense legal advice. Business-like, confident and reassuring, perfect for SMEs in need of help with documents, contracts and letters. Highly recommended!
the most transparent and no-nonsense lawyers you will find in Singapore
We engaged Ben and Desmond to defend us in a frivolous lawsuit in the State Courts. We feel very lucky to have found Ben and Desmond, as they are without doubt the most transparent and no-nonsense lawyers you will find in Singapore. Their service is outstanding, they know what they are talking about and communicate it in a way that is easy to understand but best of all they care about their clients. It is for these reasons I can happily recommend them.
