In the inter-connected world of big data and technology, ensuring the protection of privacy and security of personal data has never been more critical. At CNPLaw, we recognise the importance of data protection and are dedicated towards assisting our clients navigate through the maze of personal data and cybersecurity laws with confidence.

The Personal Data Protection Act 2012 and its regulations, along with the guidelines issued by the Personal Data Protection Commission of Singapore (collectively, “PDPA Laws”) are aimed at protecting the privacy of individuals and ensuring that their personal data is handled properly by organisations who collect them. Our experienced team of lawyers are well-versed in the legal and regulatory intricacies of data protection in Singapore.

At CNPLaw, we work closely with our clients to understand their unique business needs. By conducting a thorough review of our clients’ existing policies and practices to assess their compliance with PDPA Laws, we hope to identify potential legal risks and will provide legal advice to help clients mitigate their existing vulnerabilities and strengthen their data protection framework. In the ever-evolving realm of technology, our commitment to our clients goes beyond compliance reviews and policy drafting.

We understand that clients may have concerns from time to time and we endeavour to provide follow-up advice for any ad hoc queries that clients may subsequently have, including addressing any potential breaches of the PDPA Laws.   We also recognise that compliance with the PDPA Laws extends beyond the drafting of policies alone, and may have cross-border implications, given the inter-connected world of e-commerce. Our client-centric lawyers are adept at providing guidance on the drafting and implementation of personal data protection policies and internal documents, often working together with our best friend firms overseas to provide practical and commercially centric solutions.

We have over the years, successfully developed a track record for assisting clients across various industries and sizes on their compliance with PDPA Laws, and are ready to leverage on our expertise to assist you in your business needs.


Franchises may be built on a number of different business models. Companies with solid business models or established services or products may wish to set up a franchise as part of their business expansion. Similarly, small business owners may choose to purchase a franchise from an established business operator instead of starting a new venture to tap on the brand presence and customer base of the established business and secure a strong market entry.

At CNPLaw, we understand the legal concerns of franchisors and franchisees alike, whether the franchise arrangement is local, regional or international. We help our clients navigate the terms and structure of their franchise agreements and counsel them on legal and regulatory compliance and licensing matters, working closely with our associate firms and network of partners around the globe to provide holistic support in different jurisdictions based on our clients’ franchising needs.
