Speaking in Kuching on the Companies Bill

I have been invited by CLJLaw to speak on 16 January 2015 at the Pullman Hotel, Kuching.The registration form is over here.

Due to the good response in KL the last time for the Companies Bill seminar, this will now be held over in Kuching.



A lot of us are expecting the new Companies Bill to be tabled during the Parliamentary sitting in March 2015. The Bill and the changes it brings have been long-awaited.


Talk on the Companies Bill 2013 to MIA

A colleague and I gave a talk today hosted by the Malaysian Institute of Accountants on the Companies Bill. The session was well attended with over 90 people present. It was an enlightening experience preparing the content for the talk and interesting to hear the questions from the floor. The questions are now making me go back and study the provisions in the Bill in more detail in the other areas.


The slides are available for download here:

Speaking at the Forum on Liberalisation of the Legal Profession

This Thursday 5 December 2013, I will be one of the speakers at the Bar Council’s Forum on Liberalisation of the Legal Profession. I am to give a young lawyer’s perspective on liberalisation. The registration form can be downloaded here.


I have been following closely the incremental steps forward that Malaysia has been taking towards liberalisation and I wrote about liberalisation earlier. I will be very interested to hear from all the speakers that morning.
