On 12 October 2015, following up on an idea that came up during a chat between lawyers (and soon-to-be TML co-founders) Lee Shih and Marcus van Geyzel over a midweek duck noodle lunch in Midvalley a few days earlier, the first post was published on TheMalaysianLawyer.com.
What started off as a fun side project with the intention of featuring practical, high-quality, and relevant legal content, has taken on a life of its own. TML has opened many doors for us as its co-founders, and earlier this week we hit another milestone — 1,000,000 views.
The numbers don’t really mean too much of course, as it’s the quality of the connections that have been made through TML that truly matter. We have also been very heartened to have received many messages over the years telling us how interesting and useful our content has been, and hope to continue contributing to legal discussions throughout the region.
Besides Malaysia, a large percentage of our readers clicked through from our neighbours Singapore, with significant numbers also from the US, Australia, the UK, India, Hong Kong, and Japan.
Again, we’d like to thank all our readers for the continuous encouragement and support — and of course for reading everything we publish!
