The WTR 1000 focuses exclusively on trademark practice and has firmly established itself as the definitive 'go-to' resource for those seeking world-class legal trademark expertise.

Gold - Firms

A stalwart on the Malaysian IP scene, SKRINE sets the gold standard for local IP firms. For an enviable list of blue-chip clients from leading domestic businesses to famous multinationals, the full-service practice can do it all. Not only does it boast a team of “experienced lawyers with a proven track record”, the firm’s connection with the Lex Mundi and Pacific Rim Advisory Council networks gives it an unparalleled ability to handle multi-jurisdictional matters. Charmayne Ong Poh Yin takes the helm of the IP department while managing IP portfolios. On the contentious front, the “established and respected litigator in intellectual property and trademarks” Guan Huat Khoo enjoys a fantastic reputation among his peers. “He is a good and capable opponent in contentious matters.” IP litigator Pei Yee Kuek works closely with senior associate Melissa Long on trademark disputes for local companies. In the non-contentious IP space, Teh Hong Koon makes her first appearance in the WTR 1000 for her recent involvement in prosecuting trademarks for foreign clients, whereas Leela Devi Baskaran has been active in IP commercial matters of late. Senior associate Joshua Teoh Beni Chris deserves a mention too: “Very calm and confident in his expertise, Joshua is extremely patient and walked through our case step by step. He gets really involved in our matters, and he is willing to listen and advise clients, never giving false hope but only facts.”
