CNPLaw’s corporate lawyer, Ms Hazel Ho, gave a talk to financial consultants from AIA Financial Advisers on 14 June 2019. The talk covered the use of shareholders’ agreements for business succession planning, focusing on life insurance policies and trust services to support buy-sell arrangements. Different strategies on how to address the risks associated with such arrangements were discussed, with relevant case studies given. The talk was followed by a lively Q&A session which was well received.

    With globalisation providing not only a myriad of opportunities but also increased challenges in dealing with the various stakeholders, disputes are bound to arise in the normal course of businesses and transactions.

    At CNPLaw, our dispute resolution lawyers seek to provide support to our clients through the lifecycle of transactions. At the very beginning, we seek to mitigate risk and avoid disputes. However, should it transpire to the latter, our lawyers work closely with our clients to either resolve the matter through alternative dispute resolution matters like arbitration and mediation, or through litigating the matter, either in the civil or criminal courts. We have extensive legal experience at every level of the Singapore courts of justice, and our lawyers have appeared in a number of cases reported in the Singapore Law Reports.
