Our Team



Adrian graduated in 1998 with degrees in Arts and Law from the University of Melbourne, Australia. Upon returning to Malaysia from Melbourne where he had lived for over 20 years, he served in the corporate department of a Kuala Lumpur-based corporate and commercial law firm and was called to the Malaysian Bar in 2000. He joined MKP in 2001 and was made a partner of the firm in 2002, subsequently assuming much of the day to day running of the firm’s management and administration functions.

Adrian’s extensive experience in a broad range of corporate and commercial transactions has made him a much sought-after counsel on merger and acquisition transactions, takeovers, capital market transactions, share offerings, the issuance of private debt securities, corporate and securities regulation matters, corporate restructurings and joint venture and project transactions. His attentive and pragmatic solution-driven approach to addressing his clients’ needs has made him a trusted adviser for clients ranging from individuals and small businesses to multi-national conglomerates.

Adrian also continues to manage the firm’s property and banking practice, a role that he has undertaken for over 10 years in building on the firm’s strong foundation in property and banking law matters, including real property matters such as residential, commercial and industrial developments as well as corporate, commercial and consumer banking and security arrangements, project financing and corporate loan restructuring matters.

Blessed with three children, Adrian is a self-proclaimed tech enthusiast whose personal interests include cars of all forms and sports, particularly NBA basketball.
