Mr Lim Chong Boon - Interview by Singapore Business Review
Dealing with irreconcilable differences
PKWA Law Practice LLC takes on divorce cases with immense understanding.
Sometimes marriages just don’t work out, and these lead to divorces. Dealing with divorce matters are never easy, especially when dealing with issues of betrayal, deceit, and heartbreak, says Lim Chong Boon, Head of Family Law in PKWA Law Practice LLC, a Singaporean law firm known for its expertise on family and divorce law. PKWA Law recently won a landmark case in the Singapore Court of Appeal on division of assets, and its lawyers have been consistently named as leading family lawyers by legal and business publications.
“While the circumstances of each case vary widely from one to the next, the central tenant of our practice is that we do our best to help our clients through what can feel like the darkest part of their lives,” says Lim. PKWA’s goal is to alleviate the burden and stress of divorce proceedings, allowing their clients to focus on healing and moving forward with their lives.
Services with a heart
PKWA Law takes pride in its dedicated lawyers and support staff working in family law to take on tasks that are admittedly not easy to do. “Being a divorce lawyer in Singapore takes much more than a keen legal mind, but also one of compassion, empathy, and understanding,” explains Lim. “Not many choose to go into what is often perceived as work that is emotionally draining. It is also less financial rewarding compared to other areas of legal practice.”
As such, he notes, one of the unique defining characteristics of PKWA’s family law practice is that each and every one of their divorce lawyers is passionate about practicing divorce law in Singapore and has made the conscious choice to specialise in this area of the law. “The issue of divorce is understandably intimidating, as such we take it upon ourselves to guide our clients through the process of divorce by translating legal jargon and principles into easy-to-understand terms and concepts, ensuring that our clients understand the process and get the advice they need to make the best decisions for themselves.”
PKWA Law’s initial consultations are free and require no initial deposit or formal engagement of their services beforehand. “We do this with the understanding that seeking general advice on divorce in Singapore can be a sensitive issue,” says Lim. “Not only because it deals with a very personal area of one’s private life, but also because of the unique complexities of each and every person’s personal life, which affect how the divorce proceedings in the Singapore Courts develop.”
As divorce lawyers in Singapore, the firm is also in tune with uniquely Singaporean issues. With that understanding, PKWA crafts their approach to meet the real needs of their clients with practical and effective solutions. “No two divorces are ever the same, and we take an individualised approach to each and every case. Our staff and lawyers are also often praised for the personal touch they employ when it comes to dealing with divorce matters,” notes Lim.
Given the highly personal nature of divorce matters, PKWA’s divorce lawyers are also sensitive to changes in circumstance and adopt a dynamic approach to problem solving throughout the divorce process. Such an approach demands not only legal acumen and technical excellence, but also creativity and flexibility to push the envelope.
“Unlike most other practices in Singapore, we have not only one but an entire department of divorce lawyers specialising in this very delicate and personal area of the law,” Lim says. This means clients get the current and relevant advice when they seek PKWA’s counsel on divorce in Singapore. PKWA notes that the firm is always looking for innovative and creative ways to meet their clients’ objectives and needs. “We keep in sight the bigger picture, that is your loved ones and how the divorce will have an impact on them,” Lim stresses. The firm offers clients a one-time complimentary counselling session from an experienced external counsellor, to help them look towards the future and moving forward.
