“Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. — When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words.”
Known for his quick wit, eloquence and dedication, Aaron Mathews has leveraged on his vast experience in civil litigation to help clients defend their rights and interests, especially in corporate & commercial disputes and public interest cases.
Trained under the guidance and conventions of Messrs Shook Lin & Bok – one of the oldest and largest law firms in Malaysia, Aaron later ventured into the challenging terrains of litigation practice, leading the litigation team in Messrs Abdul Raman Saad & Associates to greater heights.
With several notable reported cases under his belt and a passion to expand his horizons beyond the bounds of traditional outfits, Aaron began his journey as the Principal of Messrs Aaron Mathews.
