Community Engagement

Since the inception of the firm in 2014, we have given more than 150 FREE talks at over 70 community organisations throughout Singapore

As part of our social mission, we believe in equipping the public and the social work sector with legal knowledge so that people can make more informed choices when confronted with legal issues in their lives.

Our talks are aimed at providing a broad overview of legal issues encountered in everyday life.

To encourage people to make long-term plans for their families and loved ones, we have also organized Will & LPA Events to prepare estate planning instruments for clients at preferential low bono rates.

Some of our more popular talks are in the areas of Estate Planning, Family Law and Criminal Law.

Please contact us if you would like to host a talk on a community legal topic or an event within your community. We are able to tailor our talks and events to meet your specific legal need.

Low Bono

The underlying principle of low bono is that no-one should be deprived of their day in Court, especially not by their financial circumstances.

The concept of low bono is intrinsically tied to access to justice. Low bono fee structures are specifically catered towards clients commonly known as the “sandwich class”, too rich to be granted legal aid and yet too poor to afford legal services at market rate.

Low bono is a distinctly different concept from pro bono, where lawyers waive their professional fees completely as a matter of goodwill.

In other jurisdictions around the world, low bono has found expression in alternative fee structures such as contingency fees and After-The-Event insurance policies that litigants purchase to hedge against legal costs.

Under Singapore law, Singapore lawyers are currently prohibited from charging contingency fees in litigation matters. This means that Singapore lawyers must either charge for their legal services or waive their professional fees completely.

It is therefore understandable why most lawyers would be reluctant to represent clients of modest means. If such clients cannot afford to pay for legal services, there is a risk that lawyers will not be fairly remunerated for their professional expertise or time spent on these clients’ cases.

We at Eden Law recognise that “law as a business” can have a severe impact on access to justice. While there are Singapore lawyers who waive or substantially reduce their professional fees on a case-by-case basis, there are still many more clients who find legal services priced out of their reach.

And until the law in Singapore is changed, we are committed to low bono by providing fixed fee arrangements on a sliding scale to our clients without compromising the quality of our legal services.
