Established in 1905, Shearn Delamore & Co. has grown from a pioneering two-lawyer practice into one of the largest firms in Malaysia.
We focus on providing and delivering a full range of legal solutions promptly and effectively. At Shearn Delamore & Co. we value quality, integrity and practicality. These values reflect who we are as a firm and our goals for the future. They shape what we do and how we do it.
Whilst other firms talk about pedigree, here at Shearn Delamore & Co. we live and breathe it; some of our practice groups are among the most established and reputable in the country. Our Intellectual Property practice, which is more than 40 years old, is a large, thriving practice and the partners recognised as leaders in the field. Our Tax & Revenue practice, which is also more than four decades old, is one of the oldest and largest dedicated tax law practice groups in the country.
With over 350 staff, comprising a team of 46 partners, 54 legal assistants and over 250 support staff – based in our head office in Kuala Lumpur and branch office in Penang – we have genuine in-depth knowledge of our chosen practices.
Eighteen of our partners are recommended as Leaders in their field for Chambers Asia Pacific 2012 in Banking & Finance, Corporate / Mergers and Acquisitions, Dispute Resolution, Employment & Industrial Relations, Intellectual Property, and Tax practices. In 2011, seventeen of our partners are recommended as Leaders in their field for Chambers Asia Pacific 2011 specifically in Banking & Finance, Corporate / Mergers and Acquisitions, Dispute Resolution, Employment & Industrial Relations, Intellectual Property, and Tax practices.
