Messrs Adnan Sundra & Low (“ASL”) and Messrs Khem Thadani (“KT”) are delighted to jointly announce the merger of both law firms with effect from 1 October 2018. This is the second merger announcement this August 2018 in relation to ASL, following the joint media statement dated 8 August 2018 announcing the merger between ASL and boutique law firm Messrs Putri Norlisa Chair.

This merger represents yet another exciting development for lawyers, staff, and clients, present as well as future, at the newly combined firm and upon completion, will result in ASL being represented by a combined team of nearly 100 lawyers, eventually to be housed together in one office in Kuala Lumpur.
