Corporate and commercial law

As one of the fastest growing economies in the ASEAN region, Malaysia relies on a bedrock of sound corporate and commercial laws to drive innovation and growth. Agreements and structures which apply across different areas of business need to be both commercially sound as well as legally enforceable.
