Shin Associates’ commitment to satisfy a universal client base is manifest in its efforts to establish strategic partnerships. The firm has developed a well-connected network of clients and associates, with foreign legal counterparts in territories such as Singapore, Australia, China, Indonesia, Thailand, the United States and the European Union.
The firm is the only Malaysian member of the Cicero League of International Lawyers – an established network of international independent law firms which provides links to high quality niche law firms. Unlike many international networks, Cicero admits into membership only one firm in any one country (except for the United States due to the complexity of its legal system), allowing close professional relationships to be created for the benefit of members and their clients.
These affiliations grant the firm the possibility of solving issues which demand an international perspective and swift execution under tight time constraints. The firm aims to present a complete legal solution to clients’ legal issues and is well-poised to provide compelling and cost-effective advice.
The Malaysian Prime Minister had on 16 March 2020 announced the imposition of a Movement Control Order (“MCO”) under which mass gatherings are banned, all public activities suspended and all offices, businesses, places of worship, and schools are to closed until 31 March 2020. On 25 March 2020, the Prime Minister further extended the MCO period to 14 April 2020.
In line with the Movement Control Order, we will be closing our office from 18 March 2020 to the 14 April 2020 (“Movement Control Period”). The entire Shin Associates team will be working from home during the Movement Control Period and will continue to ensure that we continue to attend to ongoing matters via email, tele-conferences and video conferencing.
Please note that as our office will be closed during the Movement Control Period, we ask that all documents be sent to us via email as we will not have any access to our faxes and physical post box. Any delay and inconvenience during this time is deeply regretted.
If you require assistance during this time, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Thank you and stay safe and healthy.
