There are many civil litigation lawyers in Singapore.

Finding any civil litigation lawyer is not difficult.

However, finding a good civil litigation lawyer which can deliver results at a reasonable price (and with the least stress) is extremely difficult.

Good Civil Litigation Lawyer

Let us consider the key attributes of a good civil litigation lawyer:

  • Intelligent
  • Articulate
  • Provides prompt updates
  • Fast
  • Accurate
  • Strategic
  • Reasonably priced
  • Co-operates with clients
  • Does not argue with you
  • Qualified
  • Experienced
  • Adaptable
  • Flexible
  • Sticks to the price that was quoted
  • Trustworthy
  • Does not co-operate with opposing counsel

Not-so-Good Civil Litigation Lawyer

Key attributes of a not-so-good civil litigation lawyer are:

  • Slow response time
  • Inarticulate
  • Does not provide prompt updates
  • No strategy whatsoever
  • Expensive
  • Fees keep increasing in stages
  • Argues with you
  • Not aligned with client’s best outcome
  • Hot-tempered
  • Lack of qualifications
  • Lack of experience
  • Does not stick to the price that was quoted
  • Cannot be trusted

Hence, when selecting a civil litigation lawyer, one needs to work very hard in choosing one to represent you in Court.

Criteria for Selecting a Service Provider

The law firm and the civil litigation lawyer is essentially a service provider. Choosing a service provider requires careful research and long term planning.

The civil litigation lawyer  must, as a minimum, fulfil the following criteria:

  • have a strategic focus, and executes according to strategy;
  • be sustainable and effective, so that parties can work together in the long run;
  • embrace new technology, and not use old technology that increases legal fees and decreases speed to litigation;
  • understand that planning is just as important as execution;
  • see itself as more than just a service provider;
  • offer a personalised service to each individual client.
