CNPLaw LLP (“CNP”), formerly known as Colin Ng & Partners LLP, acted as counsel to Hera Capital (“Hera“) and DSG Consumer Partners (“DSG“) in their S$5million investment into home-grown store chain SaladStop!

Private equity can be a viable source of financing for companies that do not wish to increase their leverage. While the introduction of private equity can help take a company to the next level of its development, the competing interests involved can derail the very growth that such transactions are intended to accelerate if they are not properly managed.
With years of experience overseeing private equity transactions (acting for both private equity investors and companies seeking to raise funds), our lawyers have an acute sense of the interests of both sides and are adept at managing investor relations. This ability to put themselves in the shoes of each party enables our lawyers to identify overlapping interests and pre-empt potential areas of conflict on issues such as the management of the company and the degree of investor protection.
