Ankit has represented a number of multi-national and government linked companies in Malaysia, both in an advisory capacity as well as lead counsel at all levels of the Malaysian Courts. His main practice areas are corporate and commercial litigation with a primary focus on complex commercial and corporate disputes specifically involving fraud, conspiracy, breach of trust, breach of fiduciary duties, breach of statutory duties and breach of contract. Ankit’s areas of practice also include insurance law and domestic and international arbitration as well as claims involving negligence and defamation.
Ankit has also been involved in numerous legal disputes concerning land law and has acted for various developers and banking institutions on a variety of claims including claims for liquidated damages, specific performance and prohibitory injunctions.
He has recently successfully defended several developers in a claim initiated by 400 Orang Asli for an order that the parcels of land registered in the names of the developers be expunged of the title registrar due to the competing native customary rights of the Orang Asli on those very same lands. Although the High Court decided that the Orang Asli had established native customary rights over the lands in concern, the lands registered in the names of the developers stayed to remain as such and the Orang Asli were instead ordered to seek for compensation from the state government for their loss of usage of the lands.
