Denise handles both civil and criminal matters, including investigation work. Denise joins TSMP from one of the "Big Four" law firms, where she honed her skills for a number of years.

She specialises in advising on civil disputes and has experience advising on commercial contracts, shareholder agreements, trusts, insolvency, defamation, negligence and conspiracy. Denise has acted for MNCs, listed companies and unincorporated associations from various industries such as insurance, construction, shipping, real estate and food & beverage.

Denise also has experience guiding her clients through internal investigations or investigations by the authorities. Her combined civil and criminal experience allows her to provide holistic advice to clients, approaching their issues from all angles.

When not at her desk poring over client’s documents, Denise can be found poring over the pieces of large, complex jigsaw puzzles. Apart from being her training ground for patience and perseverance, Denise employs the same puzzle-solving approach while working on her cases – scrutinising every detail while never losing sight of the big picture is the key to her success.
