About Robyn Choi


   Robyn Choi was called to the Malaysian Bar in 1993 and
   started practice in Malaysia in 1994 after graduating
   with degrees in Economics (majoring in Accounting) and
   Law from Monash University, Australia.

   In her 26 years of practice, Robyn has appeared as Counsel
   as well as Co-counsel with many renowned Senior Counsel
   both in superior courts as well as in international arbitrations.
   She has successfully tried cases and appeals in landmark
   cases relating to shareholders' disputes, directors' duties, 
   boardroom tussles, receiverships, construction disputes,
   defamation, debt recovery and regulatory offences.

   As a solicitor, Robyn has been engaged to advise on
   corporate strategies and structures for schemes of
   arrangement covering capital reconstruction, amalgamation
   of companies and debt restructuring. She has also worked
   with, and led teams comprising financiers and investment
   brokers, accountants, legal counsel and receivers for
   corporate projects.

   Apart from working with clients and in court rooms, Robyn
   has been serving the Malaysian Bar Council as a panel
   member of the investigative tribunal of the Advocates
   Solicitors Disciplinary Board for several years. She also
   participates and delivers papers for conferences in areas of
   corporate and debt restructuring, shareholders' disputes
   and insolvency.

   In the past 14 years, Robyn has also started advising clients

   Robyn has a passion for the outdoors, reading and
   travelling - when not running in the parks of Kuala Lumpur,
   she can be found meandering between shelves in book
   stores.
