About Kuala Lumpur

Trade flows between Singapore and Malaysia remain strong, and we continue to support various clients in their business activities in Malaysia. We also advise a number of leading Malaysian companies and entrepreneurs in their transactions and disputes across Asia Pacific. Our clients in Malaysia include government-linked enterprises, Malaysian banks and foreign investors.

As specialists in banking, capital markets, corporate law, dispute resolution, fund management, litigation, mergers and acquisitions and real estate, we are an established leader in the swiftly growing and constantly evolving business environment that is ASEAN.

The importance of intra-ASEAN trade and business within the framework of the ASEAN Free Trade Area has led to the establishment of our presence in Malaysia through Foong & Partners, a member of WPG.

Foong & Partners

Foong & Partners was founded by Dato’ Foong Chee Meng in 2003. The Firm focuses on high-end corporate commercial, capital markets and corporate finance work. It has advised on major Malaysian infrastructure projects and concessions involving land swaps and privatisations, debt and corporate restructuring of large listed companies, inbound and outbound investments in Malaysia, as well as real estate projects. The Firm’s philosophy is to meet clients’ financial and business objectives by providing innovative and flexible legal solutions in a cost-effective manner. In this regard, the Firm strives to provide clients with such solutions within the required time frame.
