What the world needs is more geniuses with humility, there are so few of us left. - Oscar Levant



Alvin Tang

Alvin was called to the English Bar as a Barrister, Lincoln’s Inn in 1998 and the Malaysian Bar in 1999. Alvin was formerly a partner in Messrs Shook Lin & Bok and joined Messrs Bodipalar Ponnudurai De Silva in late 2017. Alvin has represented clients in trials and appeals in all the superior courts and as counsel in both domestic and international arbitrations, as well as advocate and solicitors’ disciplinary proceedings.

Alvin’s forte is in litigating complex contentious disputes in corporate and commercial matters, with an emphasis on shareholder disputes and boardroom tussles, both in the context of listed entities as well as private companies and family disputes.

Some of his practice highlights include representing a public listed company in a RM125 million suit against its former directors involving the manipulation of accounting records and complex fictitious schemes to siphon company funds. This dispute also involved a landmark professional negligence claim against the external/internal auditors for failing to detect such wide ranging fraud.

Alvin also regularly advises and handles a variety of other disputes relating to insurance and re-insurance claims (including professional indemnity and directors’ and officers’ liability insurance disputes), and insolvency disputes from both sides of the divide. Alvin acts for liquidators and receivers and managers in the recovery and realization of assets; as well as distressed public listed (and private) companies in formulating and implementing schemes of arrangement.

Alvin has also acted for the Central Bank and the Securities Commission in Malaysia, as well as various arms of the Malaysian Government in some of these disputes.

Alvin’s legal practice ethos revolves around minimising risk and promoting business objectives for his clients. His wide ranging and extensive litigation portfolio has afforded him considerable experience in formulating legal strategies, and proposing pre-emptive remedies, to resolve and manage the underlying risks involved in multifaceted and substantial disputes. Thus, by way of pragmatic solutions, clients are safeguarded from potential risks to their business.

Alvin also offers his services to train lawyers in litigation and advocacy through the Bar Council’s Advocacy Training Course. Alvin has also published various articles for the Company and Commercial newsletter of the International Law Office.
