Business, 

Commercial & Berspoke Contract

It is essential for the success of any business, that considered and professional advice is obtained so that businesses are able to navigate through the myriad of regulatory regimes inculcated in the corporate world.

 

Our firm takes a holistic approach to the provision of commercial advice and is able to map out a comprehensive and detailed plan to guarantee that the right approach is adopted.

We routinely encounter transactions which require a suite of complex, bespoke, novel, and sometimes sensitive, commercial contractual documentation to suit the particular circumstances of the transaction and organisations involved.

Our approach enables us to advise across all practice areas in relation to commercial contracts.

We understand our clients’ business needs and offer tailored solutions. We can quickly assess the risks and commercial issues involved with the contracts on which we advise, which enables us to provide both legal and strategic commercial advice.

Debt Recovery /Civil Disputes

For businesses and individuals alike, chasing debts can not only be frustrating but time-consuming. Having to constantly pursue debtors can also be costly and if such debts are not paid, this can have a significant impact on your business.

Whenever a debt recovery dispute arises you should obtain legal advice as soon as possible, noting that strict time limits shall apply to the pursuit of claims. 

In most cases, it is advisable to seek to resolve any dispute or claim over any debt amount before formal proceedings are pursued.  

The first step is to contact us and provide us with all the relevant information and documents about the debt you wish to collect. We shall then be able to ascertain whether or not your case complies with the legal requirements by Malaysian Law in order to claim a debt. 

Then we will check the debtor’s solvency status in order to establish your chances of collecting your debt. Our lawyers can assist you in this respect by providing preliminary advice in relation to your legal rights and the pursuit of the debt owed, as well as by preparing appropriate legal correspondence, including letters of demand to be sent to debtors. 

 

Once the outcome has been studied and the viability of a legal claim has been verified, we would start all the necessary legal procedures.
