We believe that seeking legal counsel is not just simply looking for ways to react to a problem. Rather, it is an exercise of actively designing a solution that not only resolves the challenge but creates opportunities for the betterment of all involved. Our strengths lie not only in our personalised service to our clients but in our continuous drive to think outside the box.
We are a young and energetic practice pledged to service levels catered to the satisfaction of our clients. Established in April 2014, Patrick Lim & Co. (PLCO) is founded on the vision of providing professional and competent service to our clients.
At PLCO we believe the ability to think outside the box as well as lateral thinking are major assets in creating solutions that work. We strive to maintain an energetic and dynamic atmosphere to encourage these skills at the workplace. This is our culture that allows us to provide our clients with a distinct and pleasant experience.
