Helping You Grow Your Business

Our two team heads, Ker Sheon and Bernard, have aggregated more than 30 years of experience in this field – one of them frequently speaks and conducts seminars and training relating to corporate law. We act for private individuals, start-ups, financial institutions, SMEs, MNCs, statutory boards, listed companies (listed on the SGX or other exchanges), and leading offshore international law firms. We have expertise in drafting and negotiating business contracts, mergers and acquisitions, advising on compliance issues, as well as structuring and implementing complex cross-border transactions. We are also able to provide business consultancy and guide our clients in assessing and managing their business and legal risks.

As corporate lawyers, we always seek to make the deal happen. We pride ourselves in understanding the deal objectives and communicating with parties so that each side leaves the table feeling satisfied with having negotiated a good deal. In addition, we are well connected to many law firms in various jurisdictions and hence are more than able to advise on cross-border transactions.

What Our Clients Say

In our business, compliance, regulations and trust are paramount. With Characterist LLC, we have found a perfect partner to strengthen our fundamental values. Our experience with the professional team at Characterist LLC is more than a Client-Vendor relationship. The team, especially Daniel Goh, Adrian Wee, Bernard Tan and Dominic Chan, have been excellent. We always feel extremely comfortable to approach them in any situation without hesitation. They will assess every situation painstakingly, over and above their professional capacity. Our problem is their problem! We used to think of legal matters as a costly expense. But with Characterist LLC, their undivided attention, dedication and professionalism put you at complete ease. Probably the most assured feeling I get as CEO of my firm is that whenever we face a difficult situation, my staff's response instead of being stressed out is the quiet confidence - "we will speak to Characterist". I am confident that Characterist LLC will continue to be our legal advisers and valued partner for a long time!
