IFLR1000 Review
Colin Ng & Partners is praised by clients for its efficiency: "It is proficient in providing quality advisory work and is meticulous in the due diligence process. The overall level is excellent," says one client.

In 2014, the banking team led by Bill Jamieson advised Spruson & Ferguson, a patent attorney firm in Australia, on a pre-IPO restructuring deal for its Singapore subsidiary. Earlier in the year, the firm represented DBS Bank in connection with a S$75 million ($52 million) revolving credit facility deal to NV Multi Corporation in Singapore.

Another client describes the firm as "approachable, open, and constructive. Not bureaucratic, and culturally very sensitive, which is important for SME (small and medium enterprises). They were competent in drafting contracts and project follow up".

In the past year, one of the firmís highlight deals in the capital markets was its involvement in the listing of MM2 Asia on the Catalist board of the Singapore stock exchange at the end of the year. They team also represented United Overseas Bank who sponsored IPS Securex in its listing also on the Catalist board.

In M&A the firm has been quite active in China, Indonesia and Myanmar. Gregory Chan and his team advised Brooke Asia in a proposed acquisition of China Star Food and its subsidiaries for an amount up to S$168 million. In another deal with managing partner Tan Min-Li and partner Stephen Soh at the helm, the firm represented Memstar Technology in its acquisition of Longmen Group and subsidiaries by way of a reverse take-over worth $420 million.

One client singles out Chan for praise: "Gregory Chan has gone the extra mile to carefully analyse the work of the due diligence and many times threw out questions and suggestions in relation to potential risk areas during the acquisition process."

The restructuring and insolvency team saw the departure of partner Gerald Yee who specialises in admiralty and shipping matters in November 2014, two months after gaining partner Sean La-Brooy. Previously with Wee Tay & Lim, La-Brooy is a dispute resolution and professional liability and insurance expert.

In a series of confidential transactions, the team has worked on drafting documentation and provided advice on voluntary liquidation and winding up.
