Contrary to common belief, oral agreements are legally binding and enforceable in court. While proving the existence and terms of an oral agreement may be more challenging than that of a written agreement, it is certainly possible with oral testimony and documentary evidence. Join our online talk as we examine the legal position of oral agreements in Malaysia: what is required for a binding contract and how to prove an oral agreement.

Talk points:

  • Elements of a Binding Contract
  • Evidence to Prove an Oral Agreement
  • Case Studies
  • Practical Tips

Speaker: Edwin Raj (Senior Associate) and Kirbasyini Chandran (Associate)
Moderator: Carolyn Ng (Associate)
