We have a diverse Corporate, Commercial & Advisory practice that advises the Government of Malaysia, including the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Trade and Industry, Economic Planning Unit and government related agencies.

In addition, companies' mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, insolvency and post liquidation do also constitute a major part of our work and are faced not as mere typical procedures but mainly as cost effective and profit-making strategies discussed and decided by taking into consideration each client's specific needs and business plans.
