I am a Senior Foreign Legal Counsel in our Corporate & Commercial, and Dispute Resolution groups in Singapore. I have extensive and in-depth experience in dealing with various types of cross-border transactions and dispute-related matters from an external and in-house point of view, which enables me to provide a practical and efficient solution for our clients.
Being fortunate to have experience in both private practice and in-house, I believe my diverse perspective helps me assist clients and better understand what they really expect from a legal service provider. Therefore, I strive to implement a collaborative approach in which I stand side-by-side with our clients throughout all stages of a transaction or matter. I believe working with my talented colleagues here at Bird & Bird helps me develop and enhance this approach.
I have advised clients on various cross-border transactions including mergers and acquisitions, venture capital/startups, energy development and large-scale construction projects (e.g. conventional and renewable power plants, LNG terminal, and transportations) and other complex commercial matters. Furthermore, I have dealt with various types of international construction disputes, such as those related to renewable and conventional power plants, transportations, and commercial building projects. With the commercial and technical knowledge I have equipped myself with as the head of claims team in my previous in-house employment, I can look for the blind spots and construct a persuasive legal argument when developing claims.
I have dealt with transactions and projects related to Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Australia, Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Germany, the United Kingdom and Canada. Most recently, I resided in Indonesia and advised clients on matters related to conventional and renewable energy, mergers and acquisition, and other general corporate matters.
Before joining our firm, I worked at the Jakarta office of a Korean law firm and as a senior legal counsel at a globally recognised Korean construction and trading company.
