Imran Muntaz, partner

Imran Muntaz explains the client benefits of the legal team at Imran Muntaz & Co. Attorneys At Law.

What do you view as the main points that differentiate Imran Muntaz & Co. from other law firms?

A good lawyer understands the laws and regulations, a great lawyer comprehends the laws and has great communication skills, but an excellent lawyer embraces them all and combines it with commercial updates and knowledge of clients’ needs, and produces it as a package with flexibility and adaptability. I believe those aspects make the firm stand out, despite its recent establishment. Personally, there are three substantial key principles that are the firm’s and my own, which consist of commitment, consistency and integrity. I believe that everyone is competent in their fields but those three main things are hard to be found in a firm.

Which practices do you see growing in the next 12 months? What drives this?

In my opinion, capital markets and banking finance will grow, due to the market conditions keep improving, therefore the prospective investor will see the advanced economic stability compared with last year's conditions.

As a consequence of market growth some industries will begin looking towards financing, either restructuring their current obligations or obtaining the new financing for their upcoming projects.

What's the main change you've made in the firm that will benefit clients?

Establishing this firm is an adventurous and challenging experience that I will never regret. Having years of experience before developing my own firm, I set my standards high. I believe a flawless process will lead to an exquisite result. As a managing partner, it is my responsibility and day-to-day work to build reputation, train the young lawyers and crave for new knowledge from any sources, since the satisfaction of clients is our main priority. I am certain that this will surely help clients to obtain their result effectively and efficiently.

Is technology changing the way you interact with your clients, and the services you can provide them?

Over the years, technology holds a highly important role in every human’s life. Email and phone calls have become our daily routine. Technology and modernization certainly change so many things. The facilities that technology offers have evolved and contributed significantly to simplify communication, to acquire information and knowledge, and to make work more convenient. Services in our firm are various. Clients are able to email, call, text and/or any other social network to reach us, or even drop in to our office directly. We are always trying our best effort to make it handy for our clients.

Can you give us a practical example of how you have helped a client to add value to their business?

There are many ways to increase the value of our clients businesses, such as by going through the business plan together to know the commercial contents, drafting and reviewing the agreements, assisting in negotiation, advising with the insight recognition of current news updates and business opportunities, and the most important part is treating the business as if it were my own to think in the client's mindset.

Are clients looking for stability and strategic direction from their law firms - where do you see the firm in three years’ time?

Nowadays lawyers shall not only know about legal matters, i.e laws and regulations, but also pay attention to the current market transactions as well as the commercial and tax matters. However, the most important thing is the lawyers have to know their client’s needs.

We believe with our lawyer’s capability and ability to serve our clients from bottom up, our firm will be recognised as one of the best firms.
