Ming Chiek has a strong passion for designing and structuring tax-efficient deals that facilitate his clients’ M&A transactions. His career in the M&A sphere has given him the opportunity to work on several notable corporate M&A transactions in Malaysia; in particular, M&A transactions involving the property development, manufacturing, bereavement care, assets management, energy, healthcare, entertainment, technology, F&Bs and distributive trade industries.
