Key Practices


We engaged Pei Lin and the APRW team to assist us with a recent communications crisis. Their experience in media and government relations have proved to be a great asset to us during a trying time for the organisation. They are extremely competent and capable and were able to come on board very quickly to value-add. Their commitment and strategic advice have also been invaluable. I highly recommend APRW if you need a team who is able to perform under great stress and to provide sound and strategic counsel.

When legal and public relations intersect and having a good crisis communications plan in place is critical, we brought Pei Lin on board several matters over the last few years to assist clients. Her in-depth experience in crisis communications work and deep understanding of the media landscape has made her invaluable to the team. Her litigation experience allows her to very quickly understand the legal issues and positions to work hand-in-hand with our team for clients. Clear-headedness, calmness and conclusiveness – these are crucial elements required in any crisis; these qualities come naturally to Pei Lin, giving composure to clients in their most difficult times.
