CNPLaw LLP is proud to announce that Who’s Who Legal (WWL) 2022 has recommended our Managing Partner, Ms. Lisa Theng as a national leader for Southeast Asia in the practice area of Mergers and Acquisitions and Corporate Governance. Lisa is one of the select few in Singapore recognised by the publication for these practice areas in 2022.
First published in 1996, WWL has identified the foremost legal practitioners in business law based upon comprehensive, independent research. Legal practitioners are ranked based on the recommendations and feedback of those previously featured in the publication.
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.
We advise both private and public (whether listed or non-listed) companies on corporate governance and compliance issues to help them acclimatise and thrive in a regulatory landscape that is becoming increasingly complex.
Besides providing general advice on director duties and corporate secretarial matters, we help our clients better appreciate the licensing and compliance regimes applicable to the industries that they operate in and review our clients’ administrative and operational procedures for consistency with industry standards.
