CNPLaw LLP (“CNP”), formerly known as Colin Ng & Partners LLP, successfully acted for Globe International Events Consultancy Pte. Ltd. in relation to the sale of its interest in the “RetailEX ASEAN” event to Clarion Events Pte. Ltd. (“Clarion“).
The “RetailEX ASEAN” event is an annual exhibition held in Thailand that focuses on retail in-store equipment and solutions. It caters primarily to retailers in the Southeast Asian region and was first launched in 2015. Following the sale, Clarion will work with a local partner to organise future editions of the “RetailEX ASEAN” event.
Each M&A deal entails the confluence of multiple legal disciplines. That is why we take great care when assembling a team for each deal, ensuring that there is an optimal mix of specialisation in the clients’ identified areas of concern, such as tax, employment and intellectual property, and necessary industry-specific experience.
We provide support to our clients at every stage of the deal. We will be there at the beginning of the process, helping to facilitate the negotiations between the parties and advising on the structure of the transaction. Once the parties have reached a consensus, we meticulously prepare the necessary documentation. Recognising that M&A deals are often the first page of a new chapter for the parties involved, we also provide post-transaction support to ensure a smooth transition such as the preparation of shareholder agreements, employment agreements, and other relevant commercial documentation.
