Career

Guo Bin graduated from the University of Sheffield in 1997 prior to being admitted as an Advocate & Solicitor of the High Court of Malaya in 1999.

Prior to co-founding Izral Partnership in 2008 with Mohd Izral Khairy & Tharminder Singh, Guo Bin had been with Messrs. Logan Sabapathy & Co. where he was appointed as a partner in 2007.

Guo Bin’s client portfolio includes well-known property developers, investment holding corporations, news & media groups, and multi-national corporations (both local and foreign).

Whilst being well versed in general civil and commercial litigation, Guo Bin has his specific focus on employment disputes (with emphasis on asset preservation and asset recovery for corporate employers), construction disputes, and compulsory land acquisition disputes.

He is known for his willingness to go the extra mile for his clients – to sit with them and help build a case from the ground up. His focus on solution-oriented methods is reinforced by his innate disposition for scrutiny and inquiry, which manifests itself in the high standards of client-care and effective advocacy that he sets for himself.

His intuition and resolve for problem solving has served him particularly well, especially in matters involving discreet and concealed evidence. One such instance was in a cross-border matter where he successfully acted for an internet domain name vendor in an industrial relations matter involving issues of fraud, conspiracy, and misappropriation of company properties by its former employees. Despite the cross-border jurisdictional issues involved in the asset recovery and digital evidence collection process from China, Guo Bin had successfully obtained an Anton Piller Order and a Mareva Injunction for the client.

Guo Bin also has a holistic experience in dealing with construction disputes in court, arbitration, and adjudication. Besides defending clients from the usual claims arising from the determination of the contractor’s employment as well as prosecuting claims against errant contractors, Guo Bin has successfully acted for a leading media publication group from the High Court all the way to the Federal Court to enforce the call of a RM 50 million bank guarantee in the face of numerous attempts by the opposing party to restrain the call and receipt of the bank guarantee sum.

As for compulsory land acquisition matters, Guo Bin oversaw the team that had very recently successfully increased the compensation for injurious affection for a client from nothing to RM 8.3 million. Previously, he had also successfully moved the Court of Appeal to declare an acquisition of a client’s land by the Government to be null and void altogether on grounds of illegality. He then went on to successfully defend this declaration before the Federal Court.

Owing to all the above, The Legal 500 (Asia Pacific) has also recognised Guo Bin as one of the “key partners” in Izral Partnership.

Outside of the courts, Guo Bin is also regularly appointed into the Disciplinary Committee by the Advocates & Solicitors Disciplinary Board.
