Huimin Seetoh is a newly promoted Senior Associate in our Property group. She practices extensively in sales and acquisition, commercial and retail leasing, property development and other property related matters.
What does your promotion mean to you?
It shows Rigby Cooke’s recognition of my achievements for the firm to date and its continued support of my professional growth and development.
What are you looking forward to in your new position?
I look forward to fostering strong relationships with both new and existing clients of Rigby Cooke. I am also eager for more opportunities to be involved in bigger and exciting projects.
What advice would you give to newly qualified lawyers?
Be proactive and take initiative. You will only learn as much as you are willing to, and anything that you learn will benefit you. I have found that most people are more receptive to teach when you show a genuine interest in a topic through your actions.
Who has been your biggest mentor?
I am blessed to have many who have taught me life lessons and given me career advice along the way. If I had to pick one, my mum has shown me what it means to be a strong independent woman in life and in my career.
Who was the first person you called to tell about your promotion?
My family. They are the ones who have sacrificed the most for me to be where I am today. Any success I have in life, I owe it to them.
How will you celebrate your promotion?
A big feast with family and friends (when we are able to go out)!
