Malaysia - Exciting Expansion Of The LAW Partnership Intellectual Property & Technology Practice Group.


Effective May 2020, the LAW Partnership expanded with the addition of its new partner, Ameet Kaur Purba, who joins its Intellectual Property (IP) & Technology Practice Group. Ameet joins LAW Partnership from one of the most established local law firms in Malaysia, bringing with her 20 years of experience in practice. The culmination of Ameet’s robust experience in handling clients’ IP portfolios and personal data protection matters on an international scale undoubtedly raises LAW Partnership’s IP & Technology Practice Group to greater heights. Ameet’s alignment with the firm also enhances the firm’s IP capability given her far-reaching work and global presence within the international IP landscape. These include domestic and cross-border disputes and transactions encompassing varied IP trademark prosecution, enforcement, litigation, and regulatory advice, and global IP portfolio management in the life sciences and oil and gas industry. Ameet has also actively provided regulatory advice to stakeholders in the life sciences industry. She is also well-versed in data protection laws and manages IP due diligence for leading international companies with worldwide presence.  Ameet is the Immediate Past President of the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI), Malaysian Chapter and has authored various noteworthy publications on IP.


Pete Pappas, Eversheds Sutherland Global Co-Head of IP, said:


I am pleased to see Ameet join our associated firm, LAW Partnership in Kuala Lumpur. Her existing experience in cross-border work certainly adds value to the Eversheds Sutherland global IP network and strengthens our global capability in South East Asia.”


Suaran Singh Sidhu, LAW Partnership Co-Head of IP & Technology, said: 


With Ameet joining LAW Partnership in Malaysia, this is a massive reinforcement of the firm’s outstanding reputation in its IP & Technology practice. The firm has since received numerous accolades and we are excited to see how the second half of the year unfolds, notwithstanding these testing and unprecedented times.”


Ameet Kaur Purba, now LAW Partnership IP & Technology Practice Group Partner said:


I am delighted to be part of the progressive LAW Partnership IP & Technology Practice Group and its associated international network with Eversheds Sutherland. I am certain that the combined synergies and experience of the Partners and the rich support from the international network will add value to our clients.
