We provide legal advisory services to fund managers, investors and investee companies in relation to both open-end funds and closed-end funds that deal with a variety of asset classes and employ different investment strategies including hedge funds, private equity funds, venture capital funds, mutual funds, commodity funds and exchange traded funds.
Generally, a family office is an entity that assumes the day-to-day management and administration of the assets and wealth of high net worth individuals or families. Wealth preservation and growth are common objectives when establishing a family office, and clients may consider using such a vehicle to focus on the functions of investment management, tax planning, estate and succession planning, and philanthropic planning.
As clients will often enter into arrangements with professional advisors for wealth management services, we work closely with our corporate practice and funds practice to advise our clients on the structure of their family office, ensuring that such arrangements achieve our clients’ goals and are in compliance with Singapore law.
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.
