Mr. Lai Mun Loon
Senior Legal ManagerFamily and Dispute Resolution Team
Mun Loon is the Senior Manager overseeing the operations of the Family Team and Dispute Resolution at APEX Law LLC. He works together with his team to bring about the best outcomes for clients who come in troubled and overwhelmed by issues they face.
Mun Loon’s often refrain to clients is that their problems do not define them. He quickly moves to find solutions that are sensible, enduring and cost-effective. Always ready to mediate, Mun does both mediation consultations for client preparing for mediation, as well as mediation sessions when the firm is called upon to mediate between disputants.
Prior to Apex Law, Mun Loon was Head of Professional Services, and concurrent Manager of Mediation Services in EMCC. A social worker by training, he lends a multi-disciplinary perspective to the family mediation. He handles highly conflicted, emotionally charged family and relational disputes in centre. An extremely perceptive and inquisitive person, he is often called upon by fellow colleagues to lend an opinion on cases where clients are in a gridlock; he shares insights from his cross training in social work, couples’ therapy, conflict management, mediation and law.
Mun Loon is a talented orator who is objective and clear, and is a sought-after speaker, trainer and mentor in the area of conflict management, relationships and marriages. Mun Loon holds a bachelor’s in Social Work from Monash University (Australia). He is also trained, assessed and accredited in Mediation and Psychotherapy by the Regent’s College School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology (UK). Mun Loon has also been trained to Level 2 in the Gottman Method Couples’ Therapy and is an accredited Gottman Educator for ‘The Seven Principles in Making Marriage Work’ and ‘Bringing Baby Home’ programmes by The Gottman Institute (USA). He is also accredited to administer the customized couple assessment Prepare/Enrich and a certified Behavioural Consultant administering the DiSC suite of profiling instruments. He is currently a Doctor of Jurisprudence candidate in Singapore’s third Law School.
