Commercial Litigation and Commercial Arbitration in Malaysia
No.14, Jalan Medan Setia 2, Plaza Damansara, Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, 50490
The law firm of Messrs. Krish Maniam & Co. was established in 1996 by Dato’ Seri Krishna Kumar J.P., who was already a distinguished legal practitioner as well as an entrepreneur at the time. It subsequently grew into a partnership in 2004 when Mr. Paramalingam Doraisamy joined the firm. Both the partners have more than 20 years of experience as lawyers and their collective experience had carried the firm to be one of the top commercial litigation firm in the country.
The firm is essentially a boutique law firm specialising in corporate and commercial law, civil litigation as well as local and international arbitration. We are situated in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but our practice is centred not only locally, but also cross border. We are the trusted advisors to some of the leading and successful companies in Malaysia as well as worldwide wherein we provide a genuine alternative to the leading law firms in Malaysia. The firm has undertaken many corporate exercises and recoveries both in Malaysia as well as in the region. Our areas of expertise pertaining to corporate and commercial law includes:-
(i) Securities litigation, including share trading disputes;
(ii) Shareholding disputes and oppression;
(iii) Corporate disputes and litigation;
(iv) Contractual disputes;
(v) Partnership disputes;
(vi) Class actions;
(viii) Breach of fiduciary cases;
(ix) Insolvency matters.
The firm’s area of practice currently extends to local as well as international arbitration, including ICDR and OIC arbitrations. Given the advantages international arbitration offers over the alternatives in terms of enforceability of awards and the neutrality and flexibility of the procedure, it is no surprise that it has become the dispute resolution method of choice for those doing international business. Such disputes are most effectively handled by a firm with an international presence, which will give a thorough, cost effective and personalised resolution to disputes. Our firm has access to and agreements with leading law firms in the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia and thus can guarantee high quality advice and representation using arbitration.
Not resting on its laurels, the firm is also now entering the new but fast growing area of law on sports. Sports is a multibillion-dollar global industry enjoying unprecedented growth. Its success brings a corresponding increase in both the range and complexity of legal issues that it faces. An effective sports law practice such as ours can address such issues by combining a business orientation, versatility and deep knowledge of industry practices with multi-disciplinary legal expertise.
