Malaysia is one of the prime spots when foreigners decide to buy property in Southeast Asia, it’s not strange as it’s probably the most foreign friendly country in the region, when it comes to buying property.
Even if you’re not legally required to hire a property solicitor, also referred to as conveyancing lawyer, it’s highly recommended to assure that the process works smoothly and to avoid unforeseen issues later.
But it’s virtually impossible to find summarized information about conveyancing lawyers in Malaysia, therefore I’ve written this article where I present some of the biggest and most popular firms.
The firms are listed in a random order.
Below I’ve listed conveyancing lawyers located in Kuala Lumpur.
1. Azman Davidson & Co
In 1981, in Ipoh, Perak, Azman & Co., and the Ipoh office of Lewis & Co., merged to form Azman, Davidson & Co. Lewis & Co. was named after its original senior partner JMM Lewis. The firm was known for representing the major players in the mining industry. On the other hand, the firm of Azman & Co was named after its founder, Dato’ Syed Azman bin Syed Mohamed.
Right after the merger, the firm opened the branch in Kuala Lumpur. Over time, Azman Davidson & Co in Kuala Lumpur emerged from a one person company to one of the biggest mid-size firm in the country with 40 lawyers and 50 supporting staffs. Most of the partners in the firm are from Southeast Asia.
The current managing partner is HY Chong, who has been with Azman Davidson & Co since 1991. He specializes in real estate, corporate, commercial, and insolvency.
