I’d engaged Bryan as co-counsel for several matters over the years, and have been very impressed by him and his team.

The matters include a shareholders' dispute where we successfully obtained an ex parte injunction to foil the attempt to defraud shares. The injunction orders were obtained within a short period of time from receipt of instructions, and the client from Hong Kong was very impressed by this. This matter involved a demanding client and aggressive opponent, and multiple interlocutory applications had to be filed and defended as well. Bryan remained responsive and diligent amidst the tight timelines and pressure. He was assisted by Gary in this matter.

Another matter I’ve been working on with Bryan, concerns a group action by purchasers filed in the High Court against a housing developer, regarding defective houses. The matter involves expert evidence by geotechnical engineers. There were also multiple interlocutory applications, and a fairly difficult opponent. Bryan demonstrated great enthusiasm, passion and perseverance in advancing the rights of the wronged clients. He is assisted by Kimberly and Hermione in this matter.

Both Kimberly and Hermione have demonstrated amazing work ethics and are highly responsive - a testament to the culture and training in the firm. Kimberly is very intelligent, with good research skills. And Hermione is a pleasure to work with, possessing a very likeable temperament.

I would add that Bryan is a terribly industrious lawyer with a good legal mind, and I would recommend him for either counsel or solicitor’s work.

My firm has a had few opportunities to work with Ho Partnership, particularly Bryan, Kai Hwei, Kimberly, and Hermione.

Bryan has excellent communication skill, hence he can pick up the client’s concern swiftly. He pays 120% attention to paperwork and records.

Kimberly, Kai Hwei, and Hermione are energetic young ladies who are able to meet deadlines regardless of the workload and the voluminous documents involved.

Collectively, they have acted as legal counsel for my firm at all levels of Court including the Federal Court, in arbitration, and in adjudication under the CIPAA 2012. I have no hesitation in recommending this team to others.

I met Bryan in 2012 when my then company engaged the services of his firm. Bryan represented us in various matters, including a dispute between shareholders and other construction claims disputes. Despite his then young age, he was articulate and precise in his arguments. His knowledge on shareholder disputes and construction law helped us to obtain favourable outcomes.

 

Fast forward to more than 10 years later, I still engage Bryan for complicated commercial and construction matters. I have also referred him to my fellow peers in the construction industry, with the most recent engagement involving the LRT3 project. I understand that they were successful in obtaining payment from the main contractor.  I am confident that Bryan and his team will continue to achieve greater success in the near future.

Under his guidance, my company has been successful in several cases. I feel comfortable as he can always represent me to fight the best against the opposing parties.

On the other hand, Kai Hwei is another professional individual. She always keeps me well informed and is very meticulous as she looks into every single detail of the case and makes sure our case is presented well.
