About Us

Our Consultants

Our consultants are the reason for our success. All of us possess in-depth, specialised knowledge of our respective local markets.


I believe in investing the time to get it right.

Surene Virabhak


Surene is the Managing Director of the firm. She set up Legal Labs so that she could run a recruitment practice in line with her personal philosophy towards work and life. Before becoming a recruiter, Surene practised as an IT lawyer and also worked as an in-house counsel in a regional role. She graduated from the National University of Singapore and is called to the Singapore Bar.


I appreciate that I can positively contribute to not just an individual's life but the family's as well.

I get a kick from matching someone to an eminently suitable role.
