Dispute resolution

Within: Dispute resolution

The 'effective' department at MahWengKwai & Associates provides 'prompt responses and practical, solution-driven advice'. Real estate litigation is a particular strength, though the team also handles corporate and commercial disputes, constitutional litigation and judicial reviews. 'Responsible, dedicated' managing partner Raymond Mah continued to act for Sime Darby in an arbitration brought by Garden Bay. Richard Wee has a broad docket, but is especially noted for his niche strength in sport.

Labour and employment

Within: Labour and employment

MahWengKwai & Associates coalesced its employment capabilities into a dedicated practice group in 2018. The team is led jointly by managing partner Raymond Mah and Richard Wee, and acts for individuals as well as corporations; employment work in the sports sector is a particular niche.

Well versed in contentious and non-contentious matters, MahWengKwai & Associates' department has been especially active in strata title disputes and disputes regarding compulsory land acquisitions by the Malaysian government; clients in the latter space include KCSB Consortium, the Estate of Tan Bok Yin and the Metropolitan Square Joint Management Body. Tall Innovations, Ideaworks Resources and Sime Darby Property instructed Raymond Mah on construction disputes. Richard Wee advised Herbert Sim on a property ownership regularisation matter.
