Solving and Resolving Your Disputes

Disputes are an inescapable part of life. Unfortunately at times, disputes escalate into lawsuits.

Our team of litigators is here to help you both before and after escalation of the matter, with the aim to resolve the dispute. We do not encourage litigation with any agenda to earn fees, nor do we propose settlement for the sake of it. Rather, we are committed to helping you achieve a resolution which, having considered all relevant circumstances, is in your best interests.

We strive to be effective and practical problem-solvers. When called upon, we will represent you robustly – all the way to the end, if need be.

With this approach in mind, we have acted and continue to act for various clients, including individuals and businesses (large and small), in manifold civil and commercial disputes, in the Supreme Court, the State Courts, the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, and in various other adjudication bodies and tribunals. We have acted in a broad range of contentious matters relating to contract, property, estate, employment, defamation, trusts, insolvency, tenancy, banking and securities, corporate and shareholder disputes.

What Our Clients Say

I could not be more satisfied with Characterist LLC. The staff are professional and their work are very thorough. They listened to my concerns with undivided attention.

Henry Chiang

I was in a financial difficulty before I met with an unfortunate accident which gave me more trouble managing my recovery and claims. Daniel had gone out of the way to help me get through my accident claim by providing assistance along the course of it. Johnston had been very professional and helpful along the way answering my queries patiently and breaking down things i did not understand into layman terms. Both of them have been modest and never ever over promised me and always surprised me with the results. Overall I have been very satisfied all the way from the start to the end of the case. I would highly recommend Characterist LLC for any legal matters.

Seth Ong Zi Yang

Johnston Lee and his team are a great bunch of people who handle legal matters professionally and also put personal attention to them. I have a great experience  with the team in Characterist handling the sensitive issues on a timely manner to prevent more angst for me over the complicated legal matters. The value of their services is indeed from their true character.

Helen Chew

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!

Tay Huai Eng, CEO of IPP Financial Advisers Pte Ltd

Dominic and his team went above and beyond and exceeded all of my expectations in every way. Dealing internationally, he made a positive impact on my case as the knowledge he used along with the professionalism was instrumental. Being on different international time zone he worked on hours that were not expected and always did so with positivity and service. He uses common sense as well as legal knowledge equally and his work was very thorough in everything he did. He treated our case as if it was his own with passion and conviction and approaches the toughest problems with only solutions. I am very grateful that I found Dominic and the Characterist firm and could not recommend anyone as highly as I do with him.

Benjamin M. Sturner, Founder & CEO, Leverage Agency

Despite taking over the case from our previous lawyers in short notice of just two days to our [deadline] for our appeal, you were able to grasp the difficulties and intricacies we faced… We took courage and confidence from your conviction and zeal as you put forth our case in the High Court… We felt that [Dominic] put his whole heart and soul in representing us in our litigation. That inspired hope for us in what seemed like an unsurmountable obstacle… Our vindication is a testimonial of your capabilities, experience and dedication to do the utmost for your clients.

Ng Boo Han and Audrey Koo

[Dominic] would analyse the facts critically and present all possible options available… He would anticipate the most likely outcome on critical and specific issues. He is very resourceful, knowledgeable and meticulous in presenting his case. Most of all, he is very sharp. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any legal proceeding for the future.

Boey Ghim Huat

Dominic is a very professional lawyer and advocate with good knowledge and initiative. He believed in me...and went all out for me without giving up. I really appreciate the tremendous hard work and unceasing effort he put into my case, which eventually paid off with an excellent result. Thank you.

Jeremiah Tay

I would highly recommend Daniel and Noel, who are both very responsive and effective. As a fellow lawyer, I was impressed by their level of professionalism, especially Noel who conducted my hearing with passion and utmost integrity.

Partner at an International Law Firm

I have had some bad experiences with a legal professional before Daniel was recommended to me by another professional that I work closely with. Not only is Daniel efficient, helpful, responsive and competent, amongst other things, I have to say that he has restored my faith in the legal profession, taking into account my previous experiences. I initially went to him for a civil litigation matter. He did well, gave me confidence, gained my trust and I have since gone to him for all other corporate legal matters for my company. It does not stop here, in fact, I have also referred friends / contacts to his firm for legal matters. As I can trust Daniel, I believe I can also trust the rest of his colleagues whom he has introduced, they have also proven to be equally competent. I now see Daniel not just as my lawyer but as a friend, someone I can turn to for help in times of need. I will strongly recommend him to whoever needs legal help.

Jaslyn Go

Thank you for all the efforts. I really appreciate the kindness and understanding for the past years in helping me deal with the situation.
