Our history

H.S. Chew & Co. was founded on 1 April 1987 by our firm's founder and Senior Managing Partner, Chew Hock Siong who was formerly attached to the Labour Department of Melaka and has 20 years experience as a Certified Chinese Interpreter. To fulfill his childhood dream of having a University education, Chew Hock Siong took no-pay leave in November 1982 to study law in the University of Buckingham, England. He completed the law program and graduated with honours in law (LL.B Hons) in 1984. Subsequently, he completed his Malaysian Bar Final Exam (C.L.P) in 1985 and was called to the Malaysian Bar as a full fledge lawyer in February 1987. From our humble beginnings at our first office in Bangunan Ming Hoe at Jalan Munshi Abdullah Melaka, we have since then relocated to our own office unit in Taman Melaka Raya on 13th November 2002.

Our firm's Managing Partner, Chew Wee Kian, who obtained his law degree (LL.B Hons) from the University of London (U.K.), joined the firm in 1997. Under his leadership, the firm expanded to the Federal Territory by opening our Kuala Lumpur branch in Wisma Zelan, Cheras on 11 May 2004. Our K L Branch Managing Partner, Chew Wee Hong who also holds a law degree (LL.B Hons) from the University of London (U.K)., joined the team on 1 March 2005 and further improvements were incorporated to the firm's operations and service performance. On 19 December 2011 we have relocated our K.L. office to our own building premise in Bandar Tasik Permaisuri, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.
