The new Companies Bill 2013 sets out the legal framework that
will replace the current Companies Act 1965. The new
provisions aim to modernize and simplify the corporate legal
framework in Malaysia to enhance its competitiveness.
Lim Jo Yan heads the corporate and commercial practice
group in MahWengKwai & Associates and advises on mergers
and acquisitions, competition, environmental, real estate, and
general corporate and commercial transactions.
The objective of this talk is to provide information and insight
into the Bill, which will put into effect major changes to the
laws which currently govern the formation, operations and
regulations of the companies in Malaysia.
After graduating from Oxford University, Jo Yan practiced as a
litigator with Shook Lin & Bok before focusing in corporate and
commercial law with Wong & Partners (a member firm of
Baker & McKenzie International). Jo Yan also has experience in
joint ventures, corporate and regulatory compliance, personal
data protection, anti-corruption and commercial contracts.
