Kennedy equates client success to personal success. A practitioner of the Corporate and Finance group, he has served stakeholders from Singapore, Greater China, Japan, Myanmar, Indonesia, Vietnam, Brunei, the US, the UK, Europe, and other Southeast Asia/Asia-Pacific and international jurisdictions keen to benefit from a myriad of business, investment and commercial relations. He is adept at managing cross-border and transnational projects, with an effective ability to work alongside contemporaries and professionals from any jurisdiction.

Armed with requisite social and cultural awareness, a keen eye for technical detail and an open mind, Kennedy is highly resourceful and seeks continually to add value, regardless of industry, jurisdiction, or geographical forum. Clients have entrusted him to advise on deal negotiations and commercial strategy, stemming from his practice, his experience in the teaching committee of the Singapore Bar Examinations for legal negotiations, and his training as an accredited mediator. Kennedy has negotiated on behalf of Singapore and international government/regulatory bodies, companies listed in Singapore, Hong Kong, the PRC, and NASDAQ, and multi-national companies.

Kennedy read law at the National University of Singapore. He then trained in and practised at a “big-four” Singapore law firm and thereafter at a large leading US firm. He has had secondment experiences in Hong Kong, Myanmar, Indonesia and China. Drawing from such collective past, present and ongoing cumulative experience and exposure, Kennedy only brings to the table consistent and practical, client-centric solutions to adequately and fruitfully address legal and commercial realities. He is an astute provider of solutions, an all-round problem solver who takes ownership of engagements, and someone to speak to before concretizing any business or commercial endeavour.
