Malaysia

 

We were proud to have been granted Malaysia’s first qualified foreign law firm licence, after many years of advising Malaysian clients on cross-border transactions through our international network.

Our Kuala Lumpur office is home to a growing team of Malaysian and international lawyers, in a  multidisciplinary practice which supports Malaysian and ASEAN clients effectively to execute international cross-border investment, M&A and financing transactions across a range of sectors including real estate, hospitality, oil and gas, energy and infrastructure, utilising either conventional or Shari'ah compliant structures. 

We have a significant reputation for advising in the field of Islamic finance (Tier One in Legal 500 2019) and a large part of our work involves helping businesses, families and institutions participate in global investment opportunities on a Shariah compliant basis.

Our work also often involves the structuring and development of projects for clients entering new markets and which are frequently first-in-country.  Where clients find themselves facing difficulties, our international dispute resolution team is on hand to help find a resolution.

Our clients include government and government-linked companies and institutions, commercial and investment banks, family-owned and widely-held conglomerates, pension funds, energy companies, and high net worth individuals.

International in our outlook and practical in our advice - we combine our close relationships with stakeholders in global markets with our cross-border expertise to provide clients with the strategic advice they need wherever they need it, and to ensure their overarching objectives are achieved and robustly supported.  Malaysian clients choose us for our ability to deliver world-class international expertise conveniently on their doorstep.
