“Christopher & Lee Ong stands out for its speed of response, clarity of advice and conscientious follow up. Living up to the highest standards of professionalism, its lawyers demonstrate impressive trademark expertise and confidently handle matters involving complex technicalities; they evaluate risk accurately and recommend practical solutions balanced around the business needs of clients.” The group brings together experienced and like-minded senior practitioners who like to get hands-on with the work and who prioritise the establishment of long-term client relationships as opposed to one-and-done connections. These are maintained with a wide assortment of entities – including many household names from a broad cross-section of sectors – as well as Malaysian statutory bodies. Disclosable examples of its recent work include acting for AirAsia Group and Telekom Malaysia Berhad in connection with strategic prosecution and representing a global leader in the drinks industry in a complex trademark case against a local business, which was settled following intensive negotiations. Responsible for the AirAsia and Telekom Malaysia work, Sri Sarguna Raj does a superb job as head of the IP group. Proficient in all aspects of trademark work, he is especially prized for his litigation and anti-counterfeiting prowess. His partner Kim Poh Ng, another frequent flier in the courtroom, comes in for special praise as a “proactive lawyer who you never need to chase up – he delivers good advice in good time, giving clients a strong sense that their files are in the best of hands”.
