B R LAW CORPORATION

About us

For over 30 years our people have forged a reputation for championing our clients’ interests. We have represented major corporations, emerging enterprises and prominent families and individuals, sharing the belief that experience and empathy go hand in hand.

Our founding partners began their careers as legal and judicial officers in the Singapore legal service before moving to private practice. Over the last three decades, they have steadily built a comprehensive practice beyond litigation. We now offer a spectrum of legal-related services that includes corporate, commercial, intellectual property, technology, sports and media, and data protection matters.

Yet something that has not changed over the years is our culture of loyalty and tenacity. Our firm is partner-driven and offers accessible legal expertise with a personal touch. We continue to build enduring relationships with our clients. And, because litigation remains at the heart of our practice, we celebrate a culture of striving to prevail against the odds.

We are on your side. Contact us today.

Trusts, Wills & Probate

Estate and legacy planning is a critical step that every individual should consider as part of their life planning. Prepare now to ensure that your end-of-life needs are taken care of, and that your loved ones continue to be taken care of after you pass away.

As a full service firm, we can provide further support to your estate by assisting with obtaining a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration from the Singapore Courts to empower your executor or administrator to distribute your assets.

We believe that you work hard to take care of your loved ones and want to ensure that they continue to be cared for even after you pass. We’re here to guide you through that process with insight, sensitivity, and practicality.
