Corporate Governance & Compliance

With in-depth knowledge of the Companies Act, Securities and Futures Act and other statutes regulating the conduct and duties of corporations and their directors and officers, our Corporate Governance & Compliance Practice advises directors, board committees and management on their duties and responsibilities including corporate governance best practices and strategies. We provide training and seminars on corporate governance matters, and act for listed companies in relation to their compliance and disclosure obligations.

We also act for corporate and financial institutions in a range of governance matters, including confidentiality, anti-money laundering concerns, anti-bribery due diligence and compliance audits, compliance with applicable Singapore legislation and Monetary Authority of Singapore regulations, disclosure of shareholding interests in listed corporations, and insider trading.

Our multidisciplinary team is well-positioned to help clients navigate the constantly evolving regulatory landscape and to provide practical real-world solutions, including in nascent industries where business needs develop faster than current regulations.

We also represent parties in regulatory prosecutions under these Acts, as well as in any other contentious matters involving corporations, their officers and minority shareholders. We are at the forefront of multiple complex regulatory cases, representing clients before the regulators in high-profile matters in relation to governance matters and market misconduct. We provide a full suite of market conduct related advice, from the drafting of policies and provision of regulatory gap analysis to dealing with dawn raids.
