Our Practice

Wong Lu Peen & Tunku Alina was formed on 1 April 1992. We offer personal and focused legal services in the areas of corporate & commercial agreements, real estate & banking, settlement and trusts, inheritance & succession, litigation and alternative dispute resolution. Our partners have a broad range of expertise in different practice areas. We have created a flat hierarchy which ensures direct access to partners. We pride ourselves in being responsive and sensitive to our clients’ legal requirements. Our clients’ briefs do not always fit neatly in the specific areas of practice and we work as a flexible team combining resources from all our partners and lawyers in the firm.  We aim to stay lean and mean and the partners are always mindful of the need to stay ahead and to anticipate our clients’  needs. We have been able to retain most of our clients over the years and count on banks, insurance companies, listed companies, and many small to medium-sized enterprises. Over the years, many of our clients have succeeded in listing on the stock exchange and we are proud to have shared the journey with them.
