Mr Tan’s Background
His past experience as Regional Legal Counsel for the largest gas company in the world in respect of its South Asia and ASEAN regional business has equipped him well in managing and advising on a broad range of legal, compliance, transactional and contractual issues for the Board and Management of regional corporations, especially those with an aggressive plan to grow their business footprint in ASEAN region. During his previous stint as a transactions-focused regional lawyer at the largest law firm in South East Asia, he has advised a diverse base of clientele including MNCs (multinational corporations) with strong presence in ASEAN, local & foreign public-listed corporations, fast-growing SMEs (Small & Medium Enterprises), technology start-ups, fund managers and corporate tycoons.
Apart from his professional training and career as a corporate lawyer, being a director at a few corporations and an avid book reader during his leisure time has endowed John with a strong sense and in-depth view on the latest business and technology trends. This has proven to be an immeasurable asset for his legal clients and business associates time after time. Maximising deal value for his clients and partners is where his passion lies at.
John obtained his Law Degree with 2nd Upper Class Honours from the prestigious University of Malaya.
