The Construction industry in Malaysia has seen steady growth in recent years. There are many aspects to a construction project which we are able to serve our clients in.
Our team is experienced in handling both non-contentious and contentious matters. Having arbitrators and adjudicators on our team also lends credence to the expertise we are able to provide to solve your construction needs
Our services and support include, but is not limited to the following areas:
- Representing clients in CIPAA proceedings
- Drafting and concluding construction contracts
- Advising developers, main contractors, sub-contractors and consultants on their rights and obligations arising from construction contracts
Our experiences include:
Advised and represented a leading rubber glove manufacturer, in court proceedings to set aside an unfavourable adjudication decision in which our client was liable to pay RM5,241,731.02 to its roofing contractor. We successfully set aside the adjudication decision on the basis that the adjudicator had committed a breach of natural justice in making his decision. This was the first case in which an adjudication decision under the Construction Industry Payment and Adjudication Act 2012 (CIPAA 2012) was set aside by the High Court. The novel decision has been published as WRP ASIA PACIFIC SDN BHD v. NS BLUESCOPE LYSAGHT MALAYSIA SDN BHD  1 LNS 1236;  MLJU 1125;  1 CIDB-CLR 140
