‘Our experience with them is that the partners (in this case, Chang Hong Yun) pays great attention to the details of issues, and doesn’t just rely on associates to have the details. Additionally, he was very proactive when issues arose, i.e. he would not only raise an issue, but solutions at the same time, and the plans for pushing through those solutions.’

‘We’ve found him to be very organised, responsive to queries (and generous with his time), and able to distill legal issues into language that clients can easily understand. Additionally, he is able to distinguish between real and perceived issues, and bring some level of commercial practicality to his advice to clients.’
