WongPartnership Launches Malaysian Alliance
Singapore firm WongPartnership has formed an alliance with Malaysian firm Foong & Partners.
Kuala Lumpur-based Foong & Partners, led by partner Foong Chee Meng, is a 10-lawyer boutique firm focusing on corporate and capital markets work.
Foong set up his own firm in 2003 after leaving Malaysian firm Zaid Ibrahim & Co., where he had been a partner for seven years. Before that, he was a solicitor in the Sydney office of Baker & McKenzie.
“With the closer economic relations between Singapore and Malaysia, WongPartnership has been acting in an increasing number of cross-border deals and we are excited to collaborate with a like-minded firm on these complex matters,” said Alvin Yeo, senior partner at WongPartnership.
WongPartnership has around 270 lawyers in six offices in Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, and Kuala Lumpur.
