Editor’s Note

Dear Readers,

In this edition of our Empower Newsletter, we commemorate our alliance firm, HLP’s 8th anniversary, a significant milestone that fills us with gratitude and pride. This occasion prompts us to reflect on our joint journey, express

appreciation, and look ahead to the future with renewed enthusiasm. Congratulations to HLP and their tremendous team on this admirable achievement!

Inside the 5th Issue of our 2023 Empower Newsletter, we are thrilled to present a range of captivating articles, insightful legal updates, and exciting news from our affiliated firms. Covering a diverse array of legal topics such
as dispute resolution, real estate, tax, and intellectual property, we delve into thought-provoking discussions that aim to empower our readers. 

Our Dispute Resolution Team explores a court decision regarding the supply of electricity and water during the delivery of vacant possession, along with insights on Mareva Injunctions and a case where a winding up
petition was halted by depositing funds into the solicitor’s client account. 

Are you dealing with a problematic tenant in your property? Our Real Estate team shares crucial guidance on the
necessary actions a landlord can take to remove such tenants.

Next, our Tax team provides an informative write-up on the tax deductibility of payments for selling reserved units, highlighting a notable court case, Ketua Pengarah Hasil Dalam Negeri v Mitraland Kota Damansara Sdn Bhd.

We also discuss the impact of the latest amendments to Copyright Law through The Copyrights (Amendment) Act 2022. These changes have introduced significant modifications that are worth examining within the realm of intellectual property.

Lastly, we delve into an employment-related court case examining the rights of employees who claim to have been unjustly dismissed by their employers and whether they can file an action in civil court.

We hope you thoroughly enjoy reading this edition of our newsletter. Your feedback and suggestions for future editions are always welcome at newsletter@hhq.com.my.
