Two of our senior partners, Jeff Leong and Kenny Poon, made it to Malaysia’s Top 100 Lawyers 2022.

Jeff Leong, speaking at a China Belt And Road Initiative event. Jeff’s legal practice spans over 35 years across tech startups, tech funding, IPOs, overseas expansion, M&As, takeovers, board tussles and shareholder proxy fights, mediations, corporate fraud investigations, corporate restructuring and insolvency, and corporate rescues and rehabilitation.

“When no one else was advocating for startups, Jeff was there supporting them with reasonable fees for legal work and providing pro-bono training and mentoring,” says Sivapalan Vivekarajah, co-founder of startup accelerator ScaleUp Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur, about Jeff Leong, senior partner at Jeff Leong Poon & Wong, after working with him for more than two decades.

“He has been a strong supporter and advocate for the startup ecosystem in Malaysia, working with the ecosystem on policy matters, helping startups and funds with legal matters, and even training them on the legal aspects that concern them, including shareholder and subscription agreements, investment instruments, and helping with fundraising and M&A.”

Greg Poarch, chief financial officer at investment holding company JcbNext in Kuala Lumpur, also praises Leong for his counsel on capital market matters. “Jeff has provided very helpful advice from both a legal and commercial point of view in our corporate journey from pre-IPO through complicated cross-border M&A transactions,” says Poarch.

“He has been supported by a strong team that has been very responsive to our needs and comprehensive in advising us on legal matters, as we’ve relied on them in the absence of any in-house counsel.”
