Chiong Song Ning graduated from the National University of Singapore (“NUS”) with Bachelor’s degrees (Honours) in Electrical Engineering and Law.  His technical background and legal training have equipped him with a keen appreciation of the interplay between law, engineering, technology, and Intellectual Property (“IP”).

Song Ning’s legal expertise includes advising clients on the prosecution, management, exploitation, and enforcement of their IP portfolios (both locally and globally).  His technical expertise includes drafting and prosecuting patent applications in the fields of software, information technology, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering.  At Mirandah Law, Song Ning specializes in corporate and commercial transactions as well as civil and IP litigation.
