Having worked in multiple in-house positions, as a lawyer and consultant, Naomi Kwang understands her clients’ business needs and offers practical advice regarding the implications of strategic business combinations, investments and restructuring. She counsels clients in the U.S. and Asia to make smart yet advantageous business decisions through measured and calculated risk.
Naomi concentrates her practice in the areas of general corporate law, mergers and acquisitions and international business transactions.
As a native of Singapore, she is fluent in Mandarin and understands Asian business culture, which uniquely qualifies her to assist Chinese and other Asian companies conducting business in the United States, as well as U.S. companies seeking to do business in China and throughout Asia.
Naomi assists both publicly listed and privately held Chinese and Asian clients – ranging from startups to conglomerates – with their strategic investments and expansion plans in the U.S. She has counseled clients across a variety of manufacturing and services industries, including medical diagnostics, healthcare services, automotive, furniture, outdoor equipment, advanced aluminum, and more.
Specifically, Naomi has worked on buy-side and sell-side M&A transactions for U.S. and international for-profit and nonprofit clients, ranging from tens of millions to over $1 billion in deal value. She has also worked on international reorganization projects for multinational clients across North America, Europe and Asia and has advised U.S., Chinese and other Asian companies in the drafting and negotiations of a wide range of agreements with international counterparties, including supply contracts, joint venture agreements, and partnership arrangements.
Before practicing law, Naomi gained international corporate experience through a number of roles in Singapore. She was the head of the human capital division and senior officer in the logistics and supply chain management division for the Singapore Economic Development Board; a senior associate, focused on business strategy and performance management, with KPMG Advisory; and a senior executive in the corporate development division and employment and employability division for the National Trade Union Congress.
