Biography

Hur Yuin has a highly varied practice covering both contentious and non-contentious areas of family law, probates and estates, wills and trusts, intellectual property rights and contract claims. She also provides corporate drafting and advisory services, as well as corporate secretarial work, for various corporate entities including those with charitable or altruistic aims. She has been involved in trust litigation dealing with breaches of trust which had taken place over decades, as well as post-judgment applications for accounts and inquiries and the tracing of trust assets. She has also acted in various contentious probate proceedings where the validity of the last Will of the deceased was challenged due to issues of dementia and mental capacity. She believes that in family-related disputes (matrimonial, children, estates), the adversarial system must be tempered, in appropriate circumstances, by compassion. Hur Yuin is a member of the Institute of Singapore Trade Mark Agents (ISTMA) and also sits on the Information Technology Committee of the Law Society. She is an avid amateur musician and supporter of Open Source, and thus has a particular interest in intellectual property and licensing issues relating to open source software as well as music and the impact of the Internet and digital technology on it. She runs Linux/GNU operating systems at home.
