I am an associate with our Corporate & Commercial Group in Singapore, where I specialise in M&A, PE and finance.

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.

My team and I are particularly well versed advising on growth-focused projects. We have advised on private equity and family offices investments, joint ventures to explore new markets and product lines, and, financing for capital investments. We also counsel sprawling corporations on solvent restructuring to achieve efficiency and savings.

In addition to transactional engagements, I counsel clients on regulatory compliance. For instance, competition concerns associated with business strategy and M&A, or, company law compliance and governance. I help clients plan and approach regulators sensitively in order to achieve a change or clarification.

I enjoy advising clients on cross-border engagements, as it reminds me not just about 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 our clients also hail from all over the world, I often assist US, European and Australian multinationals on their Asia-Pac developments, as well as our much cherished local clients on their domestic and going-abroad objectives. I am particularly heartened to watch our clients grow and flourish as a result of our advice, and hope to continue to play a role in future success stories.
