Our firm was established in July 2016 by Tan Sri Dato Seri Utama Dr Rais Yatim and Sheela Menon under the name Messrs Sheela & Co. Our name changed to Messrs Rais & Co in March 2020 under the leadership of Sheela Menon and Danni Rais.
With years of experience in corporate, commercial, property, insurance and banking law, we are committed to fulfilling our clients’ legal needs with their interests as our priority.
Our culture gives us an unfailing focus on client relationships – clients who in their most challenging moments value advice delivered with personality. We are equipped to turn our hand to a broad range of legal matters. This enables us to offer not only depth of expertise but also breadth of experience and sound commercial judgement. We often produce the unexpected on the most complex of matters in order to deliver success for our clients. Central to our culture is the priority that we place on the individual needs of our clients. We focus on relationships, not deals, and we invest our time and attention to ensure that our clients’ interests come first.
We provide a cross-jurisdictional legal service that reflects what ‘global’ means for our clients. We drive change as much as we keep up with it, help form new strategies as much as we adapt to them and realise and develop opportunities as well as assess risk. Every situation and every transaction is unique, and our practice model gives us the clarity to see clients’ challenges in their full global and local context.
We focus on relationships, not deals – we know clients come to us in their most challenging moments, and we invest the time and attention to ensure their needs are our priority.
