Mr Leong Keat Sung Head of Business Development, Administration and DPO of a MNC headquartered in South Korea

Sheela was my clear lawyer of choice when I wanted to start my own business back in April 2016. This is because I had previous working relationship with her where I had witnessed her high-quality, cost-effective service topped with her friendly smile. Sheela helped me structure my joint venture with business partners, meet my company’s regulatory and compliance obligations, drafted all my legal contracts (including with overseas parties) and documents in clear, concise and unambiguous language. I was ready to roll out my fairly complex global business in a short time thanks to Sheela. I would strongly recommend her to businesses of all sizes.

Mr Kannan Chettiar Managing Director and CEO of a multi-service global business based in Singapore

When I look for a lawyer to trust, I look for someone who has these three qualities: ethical, proficient, and an excellent communicator.

I first met Sheela when I attended her real estate law class. I observed that she was able to articulate complex concepts in a way that was easy to understand for a first-timer. She answered my practical questions in a comprehensive and detailed manner. Not only is she an excellent communicator, she is also a highly skilled lawyer who can foresee challenges in my business and caution me to avoid the pitfalls. When I started engaging her for my project, she started by asking the right questions to better understand my business and operations. She then gave sound business advice and suggestions to improve my business model, furnished numerous viable solutions to my challenges, and recommended a suitable solution based on my requirements. She has a broad perspective on matters and ensured that I am covered in all aspects...and comply with all the rules. What I am most impressed about her is her strong set of ethics at the core of her work. She also ensured that I understood exactly the scope of her engagement - what was and was not covered, to avoid any unpleasant surprises. All in all, Sheela is a top-notch lawyer whose counsel I deeply value and I strongly recommend her without any reservations.

Dr Koh Wan Yuan Individual Client

Sheela, thank you for giving my fellow shareholders and me invaluable legal support in connection with the sale of our company to a foreign multinational. The other party had a team of expert lawyers but you were alone on our side yet had all the expertise in all the various areas of law a business requires and explained to us the legal implications of all the material provisions in the purchaser’s proposed numerous contracts, advised us clearly on the strategy to adopt, made sure that all the shareholders’ viewpoints were presented perfectly and your negotiation skills are amazing! Thanks to your expertise, dedication and attention to detail – this made me feel secure in you handling our case. You are truly a professional and marvellous individual, very personable and you receive our highest endorsement.

Mr Norman Lau Director and minority shareholder of a Singapore company

My company had engaged Ms Sheela Awat on a potential litigation matter. She had to piece together facts from a complicated series of contracts on a construction project (comprising of numerous ring binders) and many files full of communications, with limited information and sometimes inconsistent details. She had to interview staff members to fill the gaps and challenge some facts adduced - to put the jigsaw together.

I was working closely with her throughout the engagement. Her amazing inter-personal skills, solid legal expertise, sharp analytical mind combined with her business acumen helped us arrive at a legal position. I will recommend Ms Sheela to anyone.

Mr Gary Sin Program Leader, Global Conglomerate headquartered in France

I realised that the potential acquisition you helped us on proved to be extremely demanding but you worked tirelessly. It was not all “business” with you. It was something more. I was not prepared for the kindness and consideration I received from you. Thank you for not only being my lawyer, but also my friend through this. You had stood by every one of my requests and guided me through this entire lengthy process. Though we faced challenges, we did not falter, thanks to your expertise and prowess. I sincerely thank you and wholeheartedly recommend your services without reservation.

Mr Yugumaran R Managing Director of a leading Systems Integrator providing end-to-end Security solutions

I am a small sole proprietor start-up and approached Sheela for legal help after she was recommended to me by a friend. She patiently advised me on how to structure the business, helped me with PDPA compliance and drafted all my business contracts as templates which I can use with different clients and different service providers that I need to engage.

She also answered all my questions on the occasions I called her, even long after her engagement was over – without charging any fees. This is on top of charging me a very reasonable fee for her services in the first place. Not only is she very highly skilled, she is also very caring and generous with her time and very helpful. She is not only my lawyer but is also now a valuable friend and trusted advisor.
