Vivien has also been involved in the establishment of numerous charitable foundations by prominent local families and institutions and advises them on their ongoing compliance obligations.


Firm Background

The modern world is a complex web of personal relationships, and whether it's through technology, business or local communities, this interaction between people provides the fabric for our society. That's why WongPartnership is just that – a true partnership of exceptional individuals.

The relationships we have with our clients are no different. We don't deal with businesses; we deal with the people in those businesses. Even at the highest level we are dealing with human problems, and our awareness of this has allowed us to earn our place among Singapore's best. With clients ranging from multinational corporations in the banking, insurance, hospitality, construction and manufacturing industries to foreign governments, state-owned corporations and international professional firms, we have the knowledge and resources to exceed our clients’ expectations – no matter how high they are.

In each of our practice groups, we are focused upon making a difference. We might be a full service, broad-spectrum firm but no matter what practice you have contact with, our work will always be exceptional. Our rapid rise to become one of Singapore’s biggest and best firms is a testament to this.

The exceptional nature of our work has drawn recognition from major regional and international commentators, and we have established ourselves among the top echelons of the Asian legal world. Our impressive track record is the result of the dedication and professionalism of our lawyers who provide clients with practical and creative solutions to legal problems. The collaborative nature of our practices ensures that clients receive the quality of service that is essential in today's competitive and challenging environment.

Our Employment Practice is cross-disciplinary in nature and our team encompasses lawyers well-versed in corporate practice as well as disputes work. We draw on the best of both worlds in providing practical solutions for our clients in all aspects of employment law.

Our client base includes multinational and local employers and employees. Our work encompasses the implementation of staff procedures and manuals, retrenchment management, initiation and defence of injunctive relief actions for labour law breaches and drafting, advising and negotiating on employment, termination and collective agreements and incidental tax issues. We regularly advise on implications arising from the relocation of employees and termination of employment for both employers and employees. We also work with clients on employment issues in connection with carve-out and bolt-on transactions.
