Financial Institutions

Skrine supports financial institutions in a broad spectrum of matters ranging from issues and transactions concerning the financial institutions themselves for example, compliance, restructuring of the financial institutions, new products, data protection, competition, setting up of branches, amendment to its constitution, KYC requirements, and the purchase of non-performing loans.

We also assist financial institutions on issues and transactions with their customers for example, structuring of loans, loan and security documentation, enforcement of security and court proceedings, debt restructuring and settlement agreements and court orders. 

We are also experienced in acting for offshore lenders in respect of financial transactions involving resident borrowers and/or security providers.

Our team is led by Dato’ Philip Chan, recognised as a 'market leader' by IFLR 1000. He works with partners Oon Hooi LinSim Miow Yean and Lee Ai Hsian.

On the contentious side, we act for financial institutions in their financial services disputes, internal investigations, enforcement of security, debt recovery and in proceedings involving insolvency and corporate rescue mechanisms. 

Our banking dispute resolution team is led by senior litigators Vinayaga Raj Rajaratnam, Oommen Koshy, Lim Koon Huan and Claudia Cheah.
