MahWengKwai & Associates is a founding member of the League of Lawyers (“LL”), an international network of law firms across Europe and Australasia, who have come together to better serve our clients in the wake of globalization and international trade. Our member firms take pride in providing quality legal services and we are pleased to offer our clients international solutions with our member firms. By combining our diverse experience and interdisciplinary collaborations, we are able to offer our clients with a wide range of skills required to grow and protect their business whilst enhancing our client’s experience by assisting with:
• Quicker response time from our networks’ foreign lawyers;
• Alleviating difficulty in communicating with international lawyers across multiple jurisdictions;
• Sourcing potential property and / or businesses for acquisitions internationally;
• Obtaining reasonably priced fee quotations for legal services; and
• A breadth of global knowledge from a local perspective.
In November 2012, several law firms
across Europe and Asia met in Bali, Indonesia. As a result of a dialogue between them, the League of Lawyers was formed in 2013 to synergise their resources and efforts to enhance their clients’ experience with them. The founding members are Malaysia (MahWengKwai & Associates), Australia (Ferguson Cannon), Germany (VON ZANTHIER & SCHULZ), India (Astra Law) and China (Yap & Lam). The League of Lawyers now serves the needs of clients in Asia, Australia and Europe, who have inbound and outbound business investments.
The League of Lawyers facilitates members to reach out to each other for knowledge and resources, so that we can provide direct, relevant, concise and prompt advice in a globalised and web connected world. We help each other understand the country risk, regulatory framework and cultural sensitivities. In short, the League of Lawyers leverages on each member’s experience, knowledge, resources and thoughts so that we are able to offer tailored and contextualised solutions to our clients.
Members of League of Lawyers share similar values and standards. This ensures that our clients will be able to receive levels of service with reliable quality from any member of the League of Lawyers.
We have associate firms in 16 Countries
The League of Lawyers is a platform for law firms to exchange thoughts and coordinate efforts on image branding, business development, best practices, knowledge management and resource exchange. This will be beneficial to you as we collectively extend your client service capabilities to new marketplaces and provide clients with synchronised legal services so that they will receive similar levels of service with reliable quality from any member of the League of Lawyers.
We emphasise on understanding clients’ businesses and challenges so that we offer tailored and contextualised solutions. Through the League of Lawyers, we offer clients synchronised legal services for transcontinental activities that involve more than one jurisdiction. Also, it is important to us that clients, regardless of their size, receive our person-oriented attention. We see ourselves as globalised lawyers, with country-specific expertise.
Towards expanding the reach of the League of Lawyers, we are seeking firms to represent their country jurisdiction in the League of Lawyers. In principle, each country will be represented by only one firm from that jurisdiction. Our current focus is to grow our presence and relationships in Asia and Europe.
