Firm Profile

Founded in 1905, Shearn Delamore & Co. has forged a formidable reputation as one of the largest and more established law firms in the country. Our history reflects our ability to innovate and be a provider of excellent legal services to our clients.

Shearn Delamore & Co's rich history and heritage reflects the story of Malaysia over the past century. The seeds of the firm were planted around the beginning of the twentieth century, the time that professional lawyers were allowed to appear as advocates before the courts of the Federated Malay States (FMS). The cluster formed the foundation of what the country is today.

Since then, we have represented and supported the commercial and community interests of our nation, as well as the international community. We have also acted in key landmark cases that have helped define Malaysian law.

Our clients comprise multinational conglomerates, public-listed companies, industrial and commercial corporations, professional firms and organisations, multilateral agencies, domestic and international institutions, governments and individuals, and social and welfare entities. We are also frequently appointed as counsel and consulted by other legal firms.

Today, Shearn Delamore & Co is one of the largest award-winning full-service law firms in the country with over 100 lawyers and 300 support staff.
