Facilitate and not Frustrate – as a corporate lawyer, Vic appreciates that a lawyer’s role is to facilitate and not frustrate a client’s deals. Instead of simply raising red flags during due diligence or contract negotiations, Vic’s speciality is to dive deeply into details to provide bespoke solutions to mitigate such red flags.
Due to his solutions-driven approach, Vic’s corporate practice has garnered immense praise from his clients who repeatedly consult him for a myriad of corporate transactions ranging from business restructurings, fundraising, investments, mergers and acquisitions, and regulatory compliance.
Vic acts for a diverse clientele comprising high net worth investors, private equity firms, and companies across various industries.
One of his notable clients includes a renowned technology firm based in Singapore. Vic has assisted the tech firm in its regional expansion, structuring of new products and various compliance matters, including small offerings under the Securities and Futures Act. With regard to the regional expansion, Vic quickly identified the pitfalls of the proposed expansion structure early in the negotiations and put forth an alternative structure that enhanced the firm’s clout in the expansion.
Vic routinely handles high-value transactions including private investments and mergers and acquisitions. He appreciates that risks are inherent in every transaction and that there are bound to be red flags. Being solution-centric, Vic perceives these as opportunities rather than as stumbling blocks. This was the case when a client wanted to invest a significant sum in an entertainment project, but due diligence revealed numerous risk factors. Vic offered targeted solutions that mitigated the client’s risks and yet facilitated the investment.
In addition to facilitating the front end of transactions, Vic also counsels his clients in post-transaction matters. Over the past year, Vic has been actively involved in investigations relating to corporate transactions. No matter the stage of the transaction, he is stolid in supporting his clients through the commercial/regulatory landscape every step of the way.
