    • A client's feedback about Quek Li Fei, provided by Citywealth Leaders List 2018

      “Li Fei is a great lawyer to work with, he gives very clear and concise instructions even when he is acting on the client’s side. Thorough and dedicated, he goes the extra mile and adds incredible value with his ability to give the clients right direction and highlights uncomfortable issues which are necessary but may not sit well with the clients. He has excellent knowledge in the field of succession planning, legacy planning and philanthropy planning.”

    • A client's feedback about Quek Li Fei, provided by Citywealth Leaders List 2018

      “I have employed Quek Li Fei’s services from the UK for years, and have always found him to be helpful, clear and detailed in his advice on often very complicated cross-border matters. Where others have given up on such cases in the past, Li Fei goes beyond the call of duty to see the work through, and works with me to provide practicable solutions, using his understanding of the difficulties of multi-jurisdictional legal matters and his thorough knowledge of the law and the Courts in Singapore.”

In a field in which one of the greatest difficulties is receiving consistent levels of international service, Li Fei offers stable, in-depth support that exactly meets my requirements.”
