In the beginning, life at OTP Law Corporation started in Infotech, Commercial and Family Law.

We love technology, but only as its masters not servants. We like working with techies whether as their lawyers or their clients or even as co-creators. Our precedent partner is also the resident geek who almost chose MIT before deciding on NUS Law School and Singapore food. He now compensates by sitting in all the IT committees when approached. And that is many and often.

Commercial law has come to be our specialisation in the trying of shareholders disputes, and commercial sense is what we bring to the deal-making for our clients.

Family disputes and matrimonial issues have been an area of our practice since the beginning. We fondly recall our first hamper from a grateful divorce client and also how these cases were once heard in the High Court.

Besides the above, our firm also has established strengths in major practice areas.

Though we love the law and practice it with a passion, we don’t think it makes good sense for our clients to pay us for all the time we want to spend on their cases. Where possible we have moved away from time costs billings and now use the more sensible approach of fair and fixed periodic billing covering the stages of work completed. It is only in exceptional situations that we revert to time costs.

Director
 

Seng Siew has over 29 years practice experience in litigation and commercial transactions, concentrating mainly on technology related matters. In addition to practice experience, in the years when he was CEO of a technology start-up (2000-2003) and Senior Director of the Technology Cluster, Singapore Academy of Law (2008-2011), he has also gained practical experience managing technology projects as well as the daily operations of such entities.

His combined experience translates to practical advice to clients who intend to start a new or run a technology business, manage their technology partners and/or develop technology projects. His litigation experience means that he had the ability to spot potential problem areas and suggest possible solutions.

In addition to his active legal practice, Seng Siew is also an active representative of the legal profession in dealing with the government and the judiciary. As an ExCo member of the Law Society of Singapore, he would give feedback on policy matters to the authorities. As the chairman of the Inadequate Professional Services Committee and a member of the Ethics Committee, he is also involved in regulating the conduct of lawyers.
