Law and tax firm DFDL has further expanded its Southeast Asia offering by establishing a Malaysian association firm called Robin Lynn & Lee in Kuala Lumpur. 

The new firm has three partners: managing partner Robin Teow (C) has headed DFDL’s China desk since 2020, while Hui Lynn Tan (L) joins from an in-house role at Gotrade Securities, and Bin Hau Lee (R) was most recently a partner at Zaid Ibrahim & Co, the ZICO network’s Malaysia member firm. 

Last month, DFDL’s local Indonesia association firm Nusantara DFDL Partnership hired corporate lawyers Afriyan Rachmad and Jade Hwang from Roosdiono & Partners, the local member of the ZICO Law network.

A cross-border transactions expert, Teow advises clients in sectors such as infrastructure, pharmaceutical, financial services and consumer goods on M&As, public takeovers, project developments and general commercial arrangements. Before joining DFDL, Teow worked for Beijing Guantao Law Firm and King & Wood Mallesons.

Tan is a compliance specialist with focus on fintech. Prior to joining Gotrade Securities, she spent more than a decade at Zaid Ibrahim & Co, becoming a partner at 2017.

Lee advises on investment, M&A, IPO and project finance. He joined Zaid Ibrahim & Co in 2016 and became a partner last year. Previously, he was at Grandall Law Firm in mainland China.

Apart from Malaysia and Indonesia, DFDL also has a presence in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
