I have known Doreen for many years since I was a solicitor in Hong Kong. She has been very helpful to me when it comes to career counseling and I have found her to be trustworthy and reliable. I know many of her clients who also recommend her services. She is known to be consistent and works well with her colleagues and clients. I would and have recommended her services to others.
Doreen's Client
There are plenty of legal recruiters in Greater China and Singapore, but Doreen is in a class by herself. She differentiates herself from other service providers by the fact that merely finding a "head" is not good enough. Brains are plenty in this field, but finding the right chemistry for that package of heart, mind and soul to flourish and prosper in the most appropriate environment is where Doreen excels. She is able to understand the legal and commercial needs of a client and finds the best match in her extensive pool of legal talent.
General Counsel, US real estate company
