I am an associate in our Corporate & Commercial Group in Singapore, where I specialise in M&A and finance.
My team and I work closely with clients from our Corporate & Commercial desk in Singapore to plan and execute their corporate strategies locally and across the Asia-Pac region. I work across the firm's practice groups on corporate concerns, and the Energy & Utilities Group in particular.
On the M&A front, my experience includes advising both listed and private entities on purchasing companies, as well as founders and equity holders on cashing-out stakes in valuable corporations. I also counsel sprawling corporations on restructuring and streamlining corporate structures to achieve efficiency and cost savings.
My team and I are particularly well versed advising on growth-focused projects. We have advised high net worth individuals and funds on equity investments, as well as companies on joint ventures with partners to explore new markets and product lines.
In addition to transactional engagements, we often assist clients on advisory matters in the regulatory space. For instance, with regards to competition concerns associated with business strategy, or to liaise with regulators in order to achieve a change or clarification. I have advised luxury brands, automobile manufacturers and regulators on these matters.
I really enjoy advising clients on cross-border matters, as I am often reminded not just how big the world can be, but also the universality that we all share across cultures and traditions. As such, I feel privileged to be part of a truly international team with a one firm mindset that I believe sets us apart.
As part of the Energy & Utilities Group, I have also worked on PPAs, solar roof leases, financing of renewables and other valuable contractual arrangements as part of market liberalisation in the sector. I believe that greater consumer freedom and access in this important sector will lead to more efficient energy use and will help us hand over a healthy planet to future generations.
Our clients come from all over the world. My team and I often assist European and US-based multinationals on their Asia-Pac concerns, as well as our much cherished local clients on their domestic and going-abroad concerns. I am particularly heartened to watch our clients grow and flourish as a result of matters on which we were engaged, and hope to continue to play a role in future success stories.
