A little bit about us
Izwan & Partners is a boutique corporate law firm that advises early stage technology companies dealing with complex cross border legal issues in highly regulated industries who appreciate regular and personal contact with senior counsel.
We pride ourselves on providing practical and, with an eye to the future, conservative advice regarding the use of cutting edge technologies in complex and shifting regulatory environments. Our clients are in business for the long run, and so are we.
How it all started
Hi, I’m Izwan! I run, Izwan & Partners, a corporate law firm focusing on advising tech companies, startups, and ventures capitals in Malaysia.
As a young boy, I’ve been obsessed with technology matters. I still remember the day my mom got me my first personal computer (it was a Windows 95) and the loud dial-up sound that we had to go through every time we need to get connected to the web (and the shock when you get the expensive monthly bill!).
So when I began my legal career, even though enjoyed working in big law firms acting for large corporate deals, I realise that I love working with technology companies, startups and entrepreneurs a lot more.
As a niche law firm, we usually act for startups, tech companies, and investors, but we’re always open to new challenges.
What we do
We provide an end-to-end solution for any startups and technology companies that wants to run a global business here from Malaysia. Here are the usual work we can help you.
Running a startup is hard. We help you manage legal issues like dealing with cofounders and customers so that you can focus on what’s important to get your company off the ground.
Fundraising can get messy. Whether it’s equity crowdfunding or an angel investor or a venture capital, we can help you navigate compliance issues so that you can get fundraised.
Not sure if you need a licence to run your tech company? Or need a legal counsel to deal with the regulators to get the necessary approvals? We’ve got your back.
Managing intellectual property assets can be difficult especially for tech companies. We help you protect your important assets so that you can monetise your software.
Contracts are long and confusing. We help you demystify legal contracts and manage your legal risks with practical terms so that you can focus on scaling your business.
Investment & Venture Funds
We help venture capital and private equity funds structure and set up funds to preparing the fundraising documents including lodging the necessary approvals.
Our secret sauce
We are passionate about the growth of the startup and technology ecosystem in Malaysia. In 2020, we’ve launched The Startup Law Blog, a website covering legal topics and resources including issues and current events related to the technology and startup ecosystem in Malaysia.
