AmerBON, Advocates offers fully integrated legal services within the framework of a set of chambers, with a focus on litigation and dispute resolution. Amer and Edmund’s select group of specialist lawyers are “book smart” and “street smart”, devising winning strategies that combine a mastery of the law, familiarity of procedural tactics, and political and client sensitivity. The firm is aggressive in delivering the best outcomes for clients, in the shortest time and most cost-effective manner.

AmerBON advises on high-value transactions at pre-action stages, and provides legal representation in arbitrations, the High Courts, the Court of Appeal, and the Federal Court. The firm is engaged by both federal and state governments, public-listed and government-linked companies, media and high net-worth public figures, for strategic corporate and litigation advice on complex cases.

THIS IS A UNIQUE
LAW PRACTICE

01

First, the firm only takes on a limited number of cases a year to ensure its lawyers are highly responsive to its clients.

02

Second, the firm is able to holistically advise on both the civil and criminal aspects of the cases it handles. The lawyers have the expertise to conduct criminal defence litigation when required to.

03

Third, the firm’s lawyers are well-known players in public interest cases. Media outlets routinely seek out AmerBON lawyers for quick and accurate commentary on fast developing stories with legal implications. For clients, this means that AmerBON lawyers bring to the table a high degree of social capital – public trust, influence, profile, and networks, which could be tapped on where appropriate.

PRO BONO

 

Each lawyer at the firm is motivated by social causes, such as aboriginal rights and the abolition of capital punishment. Through our self-funded Collective of Applied Law & Legal Realism (CALR), the lawyers devote up to 40% of their time to pro bono work in service to the community.

The CALR also manages the firm’s pupillage and case-engineering curriculum, runs a graduate student “Street Law” programme providing free legal aid to the public, and undertakes research and development to improve ways of providing legal assistance such as through its “DIYLaw” and “Total Law” solutions.

TESTIMONIALS

Edmund and his team were exemplary in providing me with pro bono advice on international aviation law at a time of great sadness over the MH17 tragedy. This is what we should expect of a skilled Malaysian set working in the best interests of the nation. These lawyers are class acts.

Dato’ Sri Anifah bin Haji Aman, Malaysian Minister of Foreign Affairs

TESTIMONIALS

I was very fortunate to have Edmund and his team on my divorce case. They worked with charm, passion, dedication and integrity. Edmund exudes confidence to his client. I’m very impressed with his expert knowledge of the law and in particular for championing the rights of women and the disabled, issues that are very close to my heart.

Pauline Chai Siew Phin, litigant in a billion-ringgit divorce dispute

TESTIMONIALS

Amer is a walking encyclopedia on criminal law and the criminal procedure code. Couple this with the fact that he is so approachable would make him an excellent choice for us whenever we are in need of a good criminal lawyer.

Soh Sze Jean, General Counsel, Star Media Group Berhad

TESTIMONIALS

The lawyers at AmerBON have a good sense of justice and fairness, upholding what is right at all times. They are booksmart and effective, yet streetwise, tenacious and efficient. Running both as a commercial and human rights chambers, the firm is in the ascendancy. It will be buzzing in the Malaysian legal scene for the causes and cases it advocates for a long time to come.

Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Khalid bin Ibrahim, 14th Selangor Menteri Besar (2008-2014)

TESTIMONIALS

AmerBON’s lawyers are passionate and energetic advocates for human rights. Seeing how they work I came to realise that they have a detailed knowledge of history and are able to negotiate legal roadblocks with ease. I am glad to have them advising my family and I.

Sejahratul Dursina @ Chomel, a survivor of abuse of powers by the police

TESTIMONIALS

AmerBON has a dynamic team of lawyers, and does not shy away from controversial work. They are very responsive, and emphasis is given to encouraging bright young lawyers in the firm to handle complex matters. Sharp in their analysis of the law, good in using domestic and international law to argue innovatively, and strategic in their approaches to the cases they handle. They have made a tremendous contribution to legal practice in Malaysia. Amazing!

Honey Tan Lay Ean, partner at Tan Law Practice and member of the Malaysian Bar Council (2014-2018)
