ABOUT BEATRICE

Beatrice Yeo Poh Tiang, a highly experienced specialist Family Lawyer of almost two (2) decades, founded Yeo & Associates LLC, a Singapore leading family law firm. Since the firm’s establishment a decade ago, it has grown from a one-lawyer firm to an award-winning family law firm comprising of ten specialist lawyers practicing exclusively in family law.

EARLY CAREER

Beatrice commenced her pupillage with a senior counsel as her pupil mistress in 2003 where she was trained vigorously in litigation and arbitration. She started practicing litigation and property law in one of the then “big four” law firms in Singapore. To date, she has handled more than 20,000 divorce cases and is recognised as one of the best divorce family lawyers in Singapore.

AREAS

Beatrice possesses extensive breadth and depth of legal and practical knowledge in Family law. She offers advice and acts for clients in contested and uncontested divorces, mediation, preparation of Deed of Separation, Pre and Post-Nuptial agreements and advising on other matrimonial issues such as domestic violence and home exclusion, child’s custody and support, matrimonial assets division, wife’s maintenance and elder laws. Beatrice also advises clients on other areas such as family disputes arising from family businesses, setting up of trust and foundations for families, wills and assets protection, estate planning and probate and trust administration.

MEDIATION

As well as being an experienced litigator, Beatrice is equally experienced in mediation and all other methods of dispute resolution, having attended more than 3500 court mediations.

FAMILY LITIGATION

Beatrice has successfully represented under-privileged and high net worth clients in litigating their cases in the lower courts and also in the highest courts in Singapore. She has been the lead counsel in numerous reported cases, including landmark cases.

INNOVATIVE LAWYERING

Beatrice always goes above and beyond, making sure her clients receive the best service while they are in the midst of family issues like divorce and separation. She introduced the notion for fixed fee legal costs for her clients to provide peace of mind with regards to the legal fees payable. She sees this as a form of encouragement to fight for justice and fairness at a fixed price rather than choosing to give up the fight due to high legal fees.

Innovative Lawyering to add on-Leveraging our rich experience and the latest advancements in legal technology, we offer proactive and affordable assistance to our clients in the form of (“Do-it Yourself”) DIY Uncontested Simplified Divorce Platform at www.divorcebureau.com.sg which allows users to file friendly divorce applications at the comfort of their homes.
