Clients expre​​ss affirmation in RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s Matrimonial Law and Mediation Partner

RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s Matrimonial and Mediation Lawyer, Michelle Woodworth, receives affirmation from her clients.

  • “I found the following salient features of Michelle’s representation worthy of special note. She was able to identify and argue my case under a specific section of the relevant legislation which, until then, no other legal counsel I consulted with had been able to. It was because of that identification that I was able to obtain favourable judgment. She was able to maintain very cordial communication with the Defendant, as a consequence of which the Court Orders were executed swiftly and painlessly. I have kept in touch with Michelle even after five years since the judgemnt was delivered. This is testimony of how highly I think of her. Throughout this period, I have felt very comfortable approaching Michelle for help on a variety of legal matters in which has either helped, or pointed me in the direction of other counsel who has been as professional and pleasant to work with as her.”
  • Alexander Zecha commented, “Michelle had represented and advocated for me several times, over the course of eight years, between 1998 - 2006, during my custody battles and other legal issues with my ex-wife. I am eternally grateful for the professional service which Michelle provided, as well as for her maturity in dealing with me and with my family during the stressful periods. Her ethical behaviour and moral character will definitely establish her as one of the best professionals in the industry and I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone who might need her counsel.”
  • Wong May Leng commented, “Michelle represented me in handling my divorce case in 2001. I was extremely grateful to have found such a good lawyer. I was pregnant and working overseas at the time and my case would have been very difficult if not for her. She is very professional and yet able to empathise with my situation. She is very thorough and had all grounds covered to ensure that all my requests were acceded to by my ex-husband without much difficulty. She was also able to point out critical aspects that I would not have thought of. She prepared me on what to expect as well as the information required. Given that I was not in Singapore, she kept me in the loop on the progress of my case throughout, even when I came back in Singapore. There was no follow-up required on my end as she has been very proactive the entire time. After the case completed, I've continued to engage her services on a few occasions. I would definitely highly recommend her for her services and have done so for several of my friends.”
  • Shanty Chua commented, “Michelle represented me for my divorce issue and she was truly very professional in her service and provided sound advice. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends or to any firm that may require an outstanding lawyer.”
  • “Michelle represented me in 2008 and I found her to be very knowledgeable and professional.  Her sound advice helped lessen my stress and worries considerably. I would definitely recommend her.”
  • “Michelle represented me in my ancillary matters in August 2014. I found Michelle to be a trusted, committed and caring lawyer who always does her best and is willing to go the extra mile. I would highly recommend her. I would also like to express my most sincere thanks to Michelle in handling my ancillary matters which resulted in an amicable settlement within a short time period of two months by October 2014.”
  • Joy Mercy commented, “When my ex-husband filed a divorce case, I was very anxious and did not know how to handle it. I had never been to a court or police station in my life until then. Based on my colleague’s suggestion, I approached Michelle for legal assistance. She did an excellent job of taking me through the process step by step. I was not in a position to take any wise or logical decision by myself as going through the divorce was overwhelming for me. Michelle was very patient with me. Her pleasant countenance and friendly approach gave me confidence. Every time I met her, my confidence level grew. She was not treating me as just one of the cases she had, but instead communicated with me delicately and compassionately. On my hearing days in the court, her words of wisdom were incomparable. She asked the very pertinent questions to the opponent party and she defended me with impeccable professionalism without intimidating the opponent. She was pregnant at the early stage of my case and even when she was on her maternity leave, nothing got delayed because of this. She took care of everything so carefully while on maternity leave and delegated some tasks to her well qualified staff who exuded similar qualities in the job. My sincere thanks and highest regards for this wonderful lady in my life. If not for her, I doubt my case would have been successful.  I would strongly recommend her to anyone who needs to go through some issues in a family court. It’s been 5 years now, I am still in touch with her because of that impact she made on my life. Well done Michelle. Please keep up your great service to this society.”

RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s Dispute and Litigation lawyer’s client praises service standards

Zalinah Jantan commented,

“Mr Nandakumar represented me for a case involving me as a director of a company. I had discharged two other lawyers prior to Mr Nandakumar as both were unsatisfactory. I wanted a lawyer who was experienced, professional and able to advice and guide me along in the case; and not the other way round. I found these traits in Mr Nandakumar. I also found him approachable and willing to listen to me. Although my case was just a small one, he still personally handled it himself and that gave me the assurance and confidence to face it. Additionally, the outcome was what I wanted and this was achieved within a short period of time.”

“This conference would not have been possible without Nizam sharing his insight and expertise with our audience during his session, and we we would like to thank him for taking the time out of his busy schedule to join us in making IFSC 2014 such a huge success.”

“His views were well received based on anecdotal feedback from the delegates and speakers.”

“We look forward to having him with us again in the future.”

Xyec Holdings Co. Ltd. praises RHTLaw Taylor Wessing and RHT Corporate Advisory Pte Ltd for the Successful Conclusion of the First Dual AGM in Tokyo and Singapore

Xyec Holdings Co. Ltd.’s first Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) after its listing in Singapore was successfully held in Tokyo and Singapore concurrently on 27 June 2014.
According to Mr. Manabu Kobayashi, Executive Chairman, President, CEO and Representative Director of Xyec Holdings Co. Ltd,

“The success of the concurrent AGM in both countries would not have been made possible without the support of our legal adviser RHTLaw Taylor Wessing LLP and our corporate secretarial service provider RHT Corporate Advisory Pte. Ltd. The RHT teams worked tirelessly with us on addressing legal, technical, and logistical issues in the period leading up to the AGM. As RHT’s video conference facility was to be used for the concurrent AGM, we had multiple testing sessions with RHT so as to ensure that the shareholders in Tokyo was able to clearly see, hear and understand (through translation aids) the conduct of the meeting in Singapore. All these would not have been made possible with the help and assistance from the teams at RHT.”

Here at RHTLaw Taylor Wessing and RHT Corporate Advisory, we strive to deliver intelligent and innovative legal and business solutions for our clients.  We are driven to help our clients succeed.
