MahWengKwai & Associates was established by Dato’ Mah Weng Kwai in 1985 after 12 years in the Judicial and Legal Services.
Our first address was at No. 35, Jalan Medan Tuanku, Kuala Lumpur and where Dato’ Mah built a strong reputation for civil and corporate litigation, arbitration and criminal matters.
Years of commitment to the profession saw Dato’ Mah Weng Kwai become the president of the Malaysian Bar and later president of LAWASIA, the Law Association for Asia and the Pacific.
In January 2008, MahWengKwai & Associates merged with Seow & Megat to become MahWengKwai Seow & Megat. Following a decision to focus on our respective practice areas, MahWengKwai & Associates de-merged from Seow & Megat in 2009.
Dato’ Mah Weng Kwai left legal practice in January 2010. Since then, Dato’ Mah’s eldest son, Raymond Mah, has led the firm in its growth and development. Our present team has grown to 8 lawyers, 2 pupils, and 7 support staff. We have also moved to our new office at Menara Prima, Dataran Prima, Petaling Jaya.
In December 2012, Lim Jo Yan, previously from Wong & Partners (a member firm of Baker & McKenzie International) joined the firm as a partner and the head of our corporate & commercial practice group.
We are based in Greater Kuala Lumpur and service clients from Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Penang, Ipoh, Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu, Melaka and Johor.
