With recent revamps to business and corporate legislation and guidelines along with a concerted move towards greater liberalisation and diversification of commercial practices and ethos it is increasingly important for foreign investors to familiarise themselves with the regulations and nuances of the Malaysian market.
Having first taken root in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 1987 with the formation of Zaid Ibrahim & Co, we draw upon considerable local knowledge and insight to help clients navigate through the challenges and pitfalls of the Malaysian market. Regularly consulted by the government on the drafting of new laws and commercial policies, we are in a unique position to assist clients in developing and growing in Malaysia and beyond.
Over the years we have advised and acted for some of the world’s largest multinational corporations, financial institutions, service providers and government linked organisations in a variety of cross border commercial transactions and pioneering financial instruments and legal frameworks. Our status as a premier legal brand in the nation is confirmed by consistent top rankings in the legal publications, regionally and internationally, and the number of awards we have received over the years.
In East Malaysia, we work very closely with independent law firms – EFFENDI & Co and Gala & Tomik Advocates. Our close collaboration with other ZICO Law member firms as well as ZICO’s multidisciplinary platform of professional services allows us to assist our clients every step of the way along their business cycle.
