DFDL Expands Regional Footprint by Entering into Strategic Collaboration with Malaysian Law Firm Robin Lynn & Lee

Robin Lynn & Lee, a new Malaysian law firm and a DFDL collaborating firm, is pleased to announce its official launch and opening of its office in Kuala Lumpur.


The firm is led by three experienced, trailblazing partners: Robin Teow, Hui Lynn Tan, and Bin Hau Lee. They have advised clients from various industries such as financial services, manufacturing, logistics & transportation, education, technology, fintech, e-commerce, healthcare, and more. Robin has been a partner and the Head of China Desk of DFDL since 2016. Both Robin and Bin Hau have worked in major Chinese law firms in Beijing, China before continuing their practice in Malaysia.

The firm is established in collaboration with DFDL, a leading international law firm with offices across ASEAN and Bangladesh. They will work with DFDL to provide seamless and integrated legal services to clients in Malaysia and other jurisdictions where DFDL operates.
