Welcome to the Shearn Delamore website.
As the Managing Partner, I am proud to head Shearn Delamore & Co, a law firm that is and has consistently been at the forefront of the legal profession in Malaysia for more than a century, through the tumultuous years of the Great War, the 2nd World War and many recessions. The firm has withstood the test of time and is recognised as a leading law firm in Malaysia by Chambers Asia Pacific, Chambers Global, Asialaw Profiles, the Legal 500 Asia Pacific and many other publications.
With over 100 lawyers and 300 staff and an international reach through exclusive national memberships of the World Law Group, the World Services Group and the Employment Law Alliance, we are able to deliver timely and effective solutions to our clients’ requirements and expectations both in Malaysia and overseas.
The Firm has continued to develop and grow in recent years, meeting our clients’ needs for advice and assistance in many new areas of law that have developed in recent times, including areas such as Competition, Environmental, Data Protection, Green Energy and Information Technology laws and other regulatory matters, which did not exist to any extent 30 or so years ago save through the common law and equity. We are also able to offer services in areas such as Banking and Financial Services, Corporate and Commercial, Dispute Resolution, Mediation and Arbitration, Insurance, Marine, Probate and Real Estate laws and are often the port of first call in Malaysia for many international law firms. As laws have become more complex, we have also catered to our clients’ needs by having dedicated departments in specialist areas such as Industrial Relations, Revenue and Intellectual Property Law.
In Shearn Delamore, we believe in organic growth, harnessing our young talent and retaining our experienced practitioners with the aim of providing our clients with the best legal services possible. Our strengths are our lawyers and dedicated staff, who have over the years, enabled us to become a leading full service commercial law firm. We are also proud of the distinction of retaining some clients who have been with us for more than half a century. Leading international and local entities as well as private individuals turn to us with many difficult issues of importance to them and we constantly strive to provide them with practical strategies and solutions.
Many of our partners have been recognised by Chambers Asia Pacific as “Leaders in their field” regularly and on an annual basis as well as leading practitioners in many reputable legal publications.
With our range of capabilities, we look forward to serving our clients’ needs and to providing our clients with the calibre of legal services they have come to expect of us.
Our firm has, however, not forgotten that it is also important to give back to society and we are involved in corporate social responsibility programmes as well as pro bono work.
Please browse through our website to acquaint yourself with our people and our practice groups and we hope to be able to serve you as your preferred lawyers in Malaysia.
