Pravin Parmalingam | Legal & Compliance Officer

I joined Healy Consultants Group PLC in April 2021 as a Legal & Compliance Officer. I am a Singapore-qualified lawyer who previously specialised in family law, civil and criminal litigation. Now, I’m using my legal knowledge and experience to assist Healy Consultants Group PLC’s multinational Clients and staff.

  • My business goals

    • Constantly improve my practical knowledge of both domestic and international AML/CFT policies, practices and frameworks;
    • Ensure that robust and feasible AML/CFT measures are implemented to mitigate and minimise risks to Healy Consultants Group PLC;
    • Ensure that legal agreements and contracts entered into are mutually beneficial to both Healy Consultants and our valued clients / suppliers;
    • Exponentially develop my commercial awareness and skills in global business set up, accounting, taxation and corporate secretarial matters.
  • My daily work schedule

    • Assessing the risk of potential Clients and conducting ongoing monitoring of our existing Clients;
    • Assisting staff members with legal and compliance-related queries;
    • Liaising with various stakeholders (including Clients and government agencies) to ensure Healy Consultants Group PLC’s compliance with laws, rules and regulations;
    • Reviewing agreements and KYC documentation;
    • Finding feasible and effective solutions for Clients and staff.
  • The most interesting work I ever did

    • Stocktaking and familiarising myself with various artworks, jewellery and porcelain vases for a high net worth Client, in preparation for pre-trial mediation.
    • Obtaining full instructions from Clients for the drafting of their affidavit via WhatsApp call whilst they were literally on the road in rural India, where mobile internet was intermittent.
  • The most rewarding work I ever did

    • Helping a client navigate lingering child custody / access issues during the post-divorce, recovery phase. There is no greater sense of reward and achievement than safeguarding a child’s right to experience love and affection from both parents.
    • Volunteering in a soup kitchen and distributing food rations to needy families in Singapore.

    • Jogging and going on long hikes;
    • Watching documentaries and films on social issues;
