Corporate & Financial Services

Corporate & Financial

Our firm has in this field eschewed the traditional, reactive method of providing legal services, in favour of a proactive approach which we feel is better suited to meeting clients’ need. As legal advisors and negotiators, our lawyers offer the full range of legal skills required to take a business through from set-up to listing and thereafter, to continue as advisers post-listing.

Our services in this field include advising on company law and other laws and regulations affecting companies, incorporations, joint ventures and collaborations, funding, privatizations, corporate re-organisations, applications for licenses or governmental approvals or special statuses (Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC), Pioneer Status, Overseas Headquarters (OHQ) etc.), employment and industrial relations (including collective bargaining), employee share option schemes (ESOS), pledges of shares, trusts and powers of attorney,  receiverships and liquidations. Our lawyers routinely deal with government and regulatory authorities such as the Ministry of International Trade and Industry and the Economic Planning Unit. We regularly assist foreign clients in understanding and negotiating the complex Malaysian regulatory regime. We also have vast experience and expertise in listings on the London Stock Exchange.

Feroz & Co played an instrumental corporate role in the Offshore Aviation Contract with various Oil & Gas Companies with a contract value of cRM5.5 Billion.

Feroz & Co was also a key corporate advisor to the Pan Borneo Highway with a contract value of cRM14.0 Billion.

Feroz & Co was also a key corporate advisor to Stevian Biotechnology, a company incorporated in Malaysia and involved in the production of natural based sweetener from Stevia, which was admitted on the London Stock Exchange as Pure Circle Limited with a market cap of cRM3.0 Billion.

Feroz & Co was also a key corporate advisor to the acquisition of the Main Board Public Listed Company, Encorp Berhad with a value of cRM400 Million.

Mergers & Acquisitions

The firm regularly acts for both local and foreign clients in mergers and acquisitions (both local and cross border). We have considerable experience in acting for acquirers and vendors as well as target companies in various industries including reverse take-overs.

Our goal is to provide advice which is not just legally sound but also commercially practicable, thus ensuring that clients’ interests are well-protected.

Due diligence reviews are usually carried out by teams of lawyers deliberately drawn from different departments, which allows the full scope of our expertise to be brought to bear in any one transaction in a cost-effective manner.

Information Technology / Telecommunications

The phenomenon of digital convergence, the rise of the Internet, and the increasing importance of information technology in business have presented new challenges to lawyers worldwide. In Malaysia in particular, the government’s drive to create a knowledge-based society has spawned a host of new laws and regulatory frameworks.

We are able to take on assignments including (but not limited to) advice and applications for regulatory privileges and licences, mergers and acquisitions of ICT corporations, IT corporate restructurings and strategy, computer software/hardware systems and services contracts including software development, sub-contracting, collaboration, consultancy, systems integration, outsourcing and managed services and ASP business contracts, escrow arrangements, e-commerce contracts and laws, Government tenders, privatizations, concessions, software reseller and other distributorship arrangements, trademark and other intellectual property rights registration, licensing and enforcement, buying and selling IPR and technology, internet banking and advising on ICT regulatory structures and legal compliance.

Complementing this would be services related to ICT venture funding and capital raising legal work such as seed and venture capital funding, mezzanine and public offerings. Our experience means we are able to support our clients along the entire financial pipeline of the typical ICT venture.

Intellectual Property Rights

Intellectual property rights have become an increasingly significant and valuable asset for businesses worldwide. We offer a wide range of services in this field, and advise on all contentious aspects of service and trade marks, copyrights, patents and designs, and confidential information.

The firm acts for foreign corporations in managing their trade mark portfolios in Malaysia. Conversely, our contacts with intellectual property attorneys in other key regions such as the United States, the United Kingdom and ASEAN countries allow local clients to adopt a global strategy in protecting their intellectual capital.


The firm has extensive experience in banking and financial transactions ranging from ordinary home loans to large complex commercial loans.

The firm regularly attends to the negotiation, drafting and perfection of both standard and highly-engineered security documents.
