As a senior associate in our Corporate and Commercial group in Singapore, I advise extensively on corporate governance, regulatory issues and complex commercial transactions. I work closely with teams across our offices as well as other professional advisers to deliver practical solutions and help clients navigate their legal concerns.

In recent years, I have led a number of pilot projects and comprehensive policy reviews for our clients across multiple jurisdictions. Many of these projects have been undertaken in anticipation of or in response to legislative developments. The firm's expertise and the team's engagement with various industries has equipped us to develop a more in-depth understanding of the clients' operations and industry in order to engage with various stakeholders and develop the right approach and solution.

I also work closely with external advisers and counsel to plan and coordinate corporate restructuring and reorganisation projects involving entities based in Singapore. Having advised on a number of these cross-border projects and M&A deals, I am often called upon to review and coordinate specific advice on cross-border competition and regulatory matters as well.

Out of the office, I am a member of the IT Committee, and Cybersecurity and Data Protection Committee of the Law Society of Singapore. I maintain close ties with various industry professionals and support initiatives by industry and special interest groups to promote digital literacy and responsible information security practices. These industry groups have been incredibly generous in their guidance and knowledge sharing. I find it is important that we make the effort to keep up with rapid developments beyond just the legal sphere in order to stay relevant to our clients.
