Mergers & Acquisitions



The M&A practice group in RDL has been described by clients as having broad scope knowledge and is big enough to be efficient and to provide a comprehensive service to clients, but small enough not to be impersonal. Delivery has been described as being above expectations.


The 2017 edition of Chambers Asia Pacific stated: ‘The team is especially applauded for its commercial approach by several clients, who praise both its “very good level of service” and its ability to “understand the issues from a business perspective.”  … Clients also note that the lawyers “are very responsive, and generally provide advice within required timeframes.”’


Following from that, the 2018 edition stated that the firm is known to have a ‘strong corporate team, regularly acting for both domestic and international clients on mandates such as M&A and joint ventures. Active on cross-border transactions, with strong expertise in the life sciences, technology and aviation sectors’ and also that ‘impressed sources commend the team’s knowledge, reporting: “We are very happy with their work, which is of a high standard.”’


RDL is also highly recommended by AsiaLaw Proles 2013 – 2016 and well-rated by the Asia Pacic Legal 500 and IFLR1000 (International Financial Law Review) for this prac­tice area.


Partners Chew Phye Keat, Chong Kok Seng, Tai Chu Wei and Joyce Teh Yen Yen have been top-ranked in legal directories.




The M&A practice group represents clients from diverse sectors ranging from manufacturing to property to healthcare to aviation to IT, in domestic as well as cross-border transactions. We have experience in representing numerous listed local and international companies on acquisitions and disposals in and outside Malaysia.  We have advised Malaysian listed companies on large-cap M&As in all their various permutations – mandatory general offers, voluntary take-overs, take-overs effected by way of the acquisition or disposal of assets & liabilities, take-overs by way of selective capital reduction and so on – as well as on taking Malaysian listed companies private. We have also assisted Malaysian clients on their foreign M&A exercises occurring in countries such as Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, Australia and Hong Kong.


RDL has worked as Malaysian counsel on M&As with instructions originating from overseas, including the US, UK, the Netherlands, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
