In this modern age, we have to keep ahead or give up our spot. I take my work very seriously, and my priority is to provide you with advice that contemplates the commercial context to your business while providing the requisite legal insight. I define a successful interaction as one where I can distill for you complex legal issues into simple terms which anyone can understand. My professional motto: Work hard, stay flexible and – most importantly – be honest.
Unlike most lawyers, I also have a degree in Business Management (majoring in Finance), so I am no stranger to the anatomy of a business, its moving parts, and the various commercial considerations it has to contemplate on a day-to-day basis. I am particularly excited by and live vicariously through my client’s ventures – it is where I see the real action taking place (and money to be made), and where I see myself as playing a key supporting role in making that happen.
I have had experience working in both large and medium sized firms, with experience in a wide range of corporate matters. In my foundational years, I advised listed companies on various general corporate and commercial matters including on shareholder agreements, joint ventures, and bond issuances. After deciding on a specialisation in FinTech and the technology sector, I worked a short stint in a mobile gaming platform company before returning to practice, with a legal focus on FinTech and financial services regulatory matters. Since then, I have advised banks and technology companies on banking laws and regulation, payment services, and securities laws (both in the capital markets and broader financial services context).
I tend to know a little bit of everything, but I have so far focused my practice on:
- FinTech, including DLT, payment services, electronic crowdfunding platforms, etc.
- Financial Services Regulatory
- General Corporate Law
- Capital Markets
Outside of work, aside from keeping up with cryptocurrency news, I enjoy spending time with and training my dog, Hershey, watching YouTube videos on fountain pens, latest tech and product reviews, and more recently, watching videos and reading articles on the Singapore property market.
