Company History

We are proud to show how Tan and Tan Lawyers have evolved all these years. Through humble beginnings from our humble family background, Tan and Tan Lawyers have evolved through the years showing how a migrant family has contributed to Australian society.

Tan Kiong Peng and Chua Yong Siew. In honour of the parents of Charles and Raymond Tan.

We are proud to show how Tan and Tan Lawyers have evolved all these years. Both Charles and Raymond Tan migrated from Singapore to practice law in Western Australia.

From our family’s humble beginnings in Singapore and our migration to Australia, we have been proud of our achievements in helping other migrant families with their legal issues for over nearly 3 decades.

 

How humble? Dad was a taxi driver and mum was a seamstress.

Helping people with their legal matters since 1984.

How do you calculate the years a firm has been in practice? Tan and Tan Lawyers originated from the vision of Charles Tan, a lawyer who first practised law in Singapore and was a prominent Singapore criminal lawyer. He then migrated to Perth WA for a better life.

He started Charles Tan and Co in 1984. It was one of the first Asian law firms in Perth WA. As a migrant lawyer himself, he was able to attract the new migration minority as his clients, representing many clients who did not speak English as a first language.

Charles Tan and Co and now Tan and Tan Lawyers  have been the legal voice for the migrant minority in Western Australia since 1984.

We have evolved through the years and expanded our services and our expertise.

Tan and Tan Lawyers have continued to represent many clients who do not speak English as their first language. That is why all our lawyers are all bi-lingual.  From Mandarin, Cantonese,  Korean, Indonesian to Vietnamese speaking clients, we have always been able to assist them to get a fair go.
