The role of a Singapore corporate lawyer is first and foremost, to ensure compliance with Singapore laws and regulations.
The preferred company setup is a private limited company, commonly denominated with the words Pte. Ltd.
In addition, to ensuring the legality of commercial transactions, the corporate lawyer must professionally advise individuals, directors, shareholders and corporations on their legal rights and duties, including the duties and responsibilities of corporate officers.
In order to do this, a good corporate lawyer must have knowledge of aspects of contract law, litigation law, arbitration law, tax law, accounting, securities law, ACRA regulations, bankruptcy, intellectual property rights, licensing, and the laws specific to the business of the relevant client they serve.
In recent years, problems faced by well known companies such as Keppel O&M, Hyflux, Sakae Sushi and more have highlighted the complex role of corporate lawyers in internal investigations, in which attorney-client privilege could be considered to shelter potential wrongdoing by the company.
Running a business without a good corporate lawyer to guide and advise you would be a recipe for disaster.
