CNPLAW LLP > PARTNERS
As a managing partner, Lisa sees a need to ensure that our clients see us as their business partner and not a just legal service provider. Our aim is to provide innovative legal solutions for our clients across Asia with a high level of service and support that will help our clients better manage and succeed in their own businesses.
Pradeep acts for corporations, whether they are private or listed companies, on all aspects of their business including advice on structuring their operations, the setting up of the business (such as incorporation of companies, registration of branches or representative offices), compliance with all legal and regulatory requirements, licensing requirements, advice and drafting of corporate documentation as well as advice and drafting of documentation on investments, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions and restructurings.
Amit’s practice focuses on corporate law, investment funds, mergers and acquisitions and regulatory and compliance matters. He has over a decade of experience in these areas of law. You will find him to be a lawyer who is very comfortable working across jurisdictions. He advises on investments into Asia and matters relating to cross border M&A.
Bill is an English lawyer who is also registered to practise Singapore law in the areas of corporate law, banking and finance and securities laws. He enjoys working in the diverse and dynamic Asian market and helping his clients to achieve their goals.
Wai Mun has adopted a broad-based approach in developing his technical skills. Although he started out as a litigation lawyer, he quickly widened his job scope to take on real estate work. For him, it’s a critical grounding to enhance not only legal skills but also develops a better appreciation of the commercial and private clients issues in legal practice.
Edwin is in the firm’s Dispute Resolution team and Family Law practice team. His practice areas encompass a broad range of matters, including civil and commercial litigation, disciplinary proceedings, shareholders disputes, employment matters, and defamation. He also regularly advises clients on wills and probate, lasting power of attorney, application under the Mental Capacity Act and contentious probate.
Cinda is a pioneer of sorts, having experienced and worked through many “firsts” in Singapore’s real estate history and scene, which are now taken as the norm. One of these was the start of the collective sales trend of private estates. Another “first” was the birth of executive condominiums in Singapore. As with anything new, lawyers then had to understand the new legislation and rules relating to this new piece of real estate and work through the initial lack of clarity and uncertainty when advising potential buyers on the legal obligations and their financiers (i.e. the banks and the CPFB) in their legal documentation. Yet another significant event was the conversion of land in Singapore (which was then largely unregistered) to the Torrens system of land registration, through a very massive and gradual exercise.
Jimmy’s main areas of practice for non-contentious work are Indonesia related corporate and commercial matters – such as investment into Indonesia, mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures, and franchising & licensing. In addition, he also focuses on Singapore and Hong Kong IPO-related legal due diligence.
Ken heads the Corporate advisory team in the firm and has an international focus in his corporate and M&A work having graduated from the University of Exeter in the UK and worked in business development positions with various subsidiaries of the Hang Lung Group (SEHK: 10) in Shanghai, the People’s Republic of China and with Informa plc (LSE: INF) in Singapore.
Kenn’s practice covers a wide range of corporate and commercial transactions such as mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, foreign investments and private equity transactions. Fluent in both English and Mandarin, Kenn regularly acts for companies in a spectrum of industries in various domestic and cross-border corporate transactions.
In addition to Li Fei’s experience in acting for banks on varied transactions and in general corporate law, he also helps individuals in estate planning, including the legal aspects of wealth management, advising on and setting up trusts and off-shore structures to secure their future and the future of their families.
Ravindran has 32 years of legal experience. He is in the firm’s Dispute Resolution team and handles both civil and criminal work. He specialises in corporate advisory and corporate and criminal litigation work. He provides legal advice to directors and CEOs on laws and rules relating to directors’ duties and corporate governance. He has a wealth of experience in advising local and regional companies on investment agreements, joint ventures, and corporate structures. He also advises many companies on fraud and due diligence measure to adopt in investments and overseas business development.
Soo Ling’s main areas of practice are intellectual property and dispute resolution. She has experience in a diverse range of matters such as building construction, company law, commercial law, disciplinary proceedings, employment law, family law, intellectual property, property law, probate & administration and shareholder disputes.

His background in commercial litigation, corporate finance and technology law enables him to quickly identify key issues and areas of concern across a spectrum of complex corporate and technology-related transactions and to formulate pragmatic, end-to-end, solutions for his clients.
