Professsional Indemnity Scheme
Our partner, Leong Wai Hong, acts as counsel on behalf of insurers and underwriters of professional indemnity schemes for the Malaysian Bar in defending claims of negligence against lawyers.
We are also experienced in the representation of medical practitioners subjected to inquiries or charges by the Malaysian Medical Council. Our lawyers are well-versed with the nuances of such inquiries and are equipped to provide comprehensive representation to the client throughout the course of such inquiries. We have access to a team of varied and highly respected medical professionals who are recognised as experts in their respective fields of medicine; enabling us to obtain interim advice, expert opinions when necessary. These experts are available as expert witnesses or as consultants to the defence team when we act for a client.
In instances where allegations of negligence are libellous in nature, clients are rendered access to our highly experienced defamation practitioners for specific advice on prosecution of a defamation action.
