Family Offices



Generally, a family office is an entity that assumes the day-to-day management and administration of the assets and wealth of high net worth individuals or families. Wealth preservation and growth are common objectives when establishing a family office, and clients may consider using such a vehicle to focus on the functions of investment management, tax planning, estate and succession planning, and philanthropic planning.

As clients will often enter into arrangements with professional advisors for wealth management services, we work closely with our corporate practice and funds practice to advise our clients on the structure of their family office, ensuring that such arrangements achieve our clients’ goals and are in compliance with Singapore law.



    Thank you for reaching out to us. Kindly fill up this form and we aim to reply you as soon as possible. For more urgent matters, please call us at +65 6323 8383.

    • 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.”

    • A client's feedback about Quek Li Fei, provided by Citywealth Leaders List 2017

      “My firm has instructed Quek Li Fei to act in the administration of Singapore estate assets on several occasions. Throughout our correspondence Li Fei has provided clear, thorough directions and managed my expectations effectively regarding costs, warnings and case-specific issues. He never fails to answer my questions and those of my clients, without hesitation. 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.”
