Debt Recovery Companies Winding Up Legal Firm

Peggy San, 申碧溪

Before the commencement of my summer attachment in a legal firm, I was invited personally by Mr Alex Chang Huey Wah to attend his lecture as one of the lecturers at the Bar Council Ethics classes exclusively tailored for the pupils in chamber.  That was my first acquaintance in my ‘practical’ legal journey outside the university and I am glad to be given a rare opportunity like this as an eye-opener. Besides, I was impressed and amazed by the fact that my very own Master had contributed in writing the Malayan Law Journal (MLJ) Companies Winding Up Handbook and had conducted scores of winding up matters to establish himself as the renowned pioneer in this area of practice.

在我开始我的暑假见习生课程之前,我曾被张大律师亲自邀请到他身为讲师之一的律师协会的”伦理课程”,那是一个专门为实习律师所设的演讲课程。那个经验也是我在校园以外认识了实践法律的第一次所以让我为之大开了眼界。我对于我自己能被赋予这样难得的机会感到开心。此外,我也为我的师傅,张大律师至今所完成的无数公司清盘案子和他为马来亚法律杂志(Malayan Law Journal)公司清盘手册所做出的贡献数(他因此成为在这方面大名鼎鼎的先锋)感到乍舌之余,印象深刻。

During the tenure of my  attachment I was also assigned to work  alongside  a young competent legal assistant Miss Lim Soo Zee  trained by Mr Alex Chang Huey Wah himself. A patient and dedicated lawyer like her put a smile on my face when I had to navigate the myriad of authorities and motivated me further in becoming a lawyer like her.

我在Alex Chang律师楼见习的那段日子里被安排跟在一位年轻能干,由张大律师亲自培训的法律助理,林淑儿Lim Soo Zee小姐身边工作。当我被无数的案例冲昏脑袋之际,还能看到像她这么一位这么有耐心又热爱工作的律师让我不禁会心一笑,她激励了我想成为像她一样能干律师的决心。

On the opportunity given to  attachment students  in Alex Chang & Co, I was invited to to go the Kuala Lumpur High Court, Seremban High Court, Penang High Court and the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya to acquaint myself with the process of filing and also to watch various hearings.

在张大律师事务所当见习生有很多机遇,我曾被邀请到吉隆坡高等法庭,芙蓉高等法庭,槟城高等法庭和布城的司法宫去让自己熟悉提交文件的程序和观看许多的审讯。

The dignified and solemn ambience of the court, the thrills during both of the counsel’s presentation, the feeling of the butterflies in the stomach before the judgment was pronounced and the sheer joy of accomplishment when the court rules in your favour are what I consider as invaluable insights.

法院威严和肃穆的氛围,观看双方律师陈诉他们的论点时的紧张感,宣告判决前的神经质的发抖,和听到法庭到对我方做出有利的判决时十足的的喜悦以及成就感,对我而言是一的无价的见识。

In addition, I was also invited to participate in many conferences with the clients for the discussion of their legal matters. It was interesting listening to how they narrate their come about of the pleaded case, brainstorming for supporting grounds, and reckoning the chances of victory. Apart from exposures like this, I was assigned to read up authorities from scratch, align myself with both side of arguments, interpret and analyse the circumstances, prepare skeletal submissions based on the research, and finally assist counsel in the pruning of the submissions culminating to the brief 15-minute ‘air time’ allowed during open court arguments in the Appellate court.

除此之外,我也被邀请去参加了许多和客户一起讨论法律问题的会议。我非常有兴趣听他们讲述事情或案子的发生经过,为支持的要点思考,并推算胜利的机率。除了这些的经历,我被要求从头到位的阅读无数案例,思考辩护双方会使用的论点,理解与分析情况,搜索资料来准备陈词的大纲,还有协助律师修饰他们的陈词好让他们能在上诉法院的公开法庭上短暂的以15分钟来陈述论点。

Besides work we had much fun during the attachment with the colleagues in various social settings like karaoke at the Royal Lake Club, roadtrip to Penang, farewell dinners, not forgetting also the ‘celebratory’ dinners with the clients. It surely and definitely strengthened our friendship and heightened the togetherness in us, creating a happy community to work in.

除了工作,我与同事参与了许多给予我许多快乐经验的社交活动如唱卡拉OK,槟城旅行,告别晚宴,以及与客户们的庆祝晚宴。。。这些活动都大大地加强了我们律师楼上上下下的友谊也团结了我们,为我们创造了一个欢乐的工作团队

Dealing with a learned Master like Mr Alex Chang could sometimes be rather arduous because you got to be on the same wavelength in order to comprehend him and effectively carry out his instructions. Unlike in any other firms where your Master sees and treats you like one of the many attachment students, he regards us as one important member of the firm and trains you to think, act and behave like a lawyer. He holds high expectations of us and makes sure that we are all ‘up to par’. This is one of the many things that distinguished Alex Chang & Co from other firms.
与像张大律师这样博学的师傅打交道有时是相当艰苦的,因为你必须和他有一样的思维才能有效地执行他的指令。不像其他只把你当成是众多见习生中之一位的那种师傅,他对我们就好像对他的其他重要员工一样,训练我们去思考和表现得像个律师。他对我们有很高的期望也致力确保我们都“达到标准”。这只是其中一项张大律师事务所比其他事务所都来得突出的原因。

Moreover, I also learnt to be humble. In the acquisition of knowledge the sky is the limit. If we are too preoccupied on what we think we know, then further learning will be halted. Hence, I take many trivial things like running to post offices, hopping onto the bus back from the Kuala Lumpur High Court, promoting a harmonised atmosphere as part of the learning process. I have mentioned this to Mr Alex Chang, the training made me an inch further from being a daddy’s girl and I am proud to be where I stand now.

此外,我也学会了谦卑。在汲取知识时,只有天空是极限。如果我们觉得我们自己什么都会了,那么就无法继续地学习。因此,我也做了很多琐碎的事情如到邮政局,从吉隆坡高等法庭搭巴士回去和促进和谐共处的环境来作为窝学习过程的一部分。我向张惠华大律师Alex Chang提及过,这些培训让我更一步的远离爸爸的羽翼,我为自己的这份成就感到自豪。

It was indeed an exciting experience meeting different people with distinctive characters and consolidating my textbook legal knowledge and put it into practice in this short 2 months. This closing of this chapter of my life surely comprises bittersweet moments and last but not least, I would like to extend my heart felt gratitude to Mr Alex Chang and Miss Lim Soo Zee in making our summer attachment bountiful fruitful and meaningful.

在这短短的两个月内,我感到非常兴奋因为我认识到了不同性格的人,巩固了我从书上所学到的法律知识,并把它付诸于实践。。在结束我人生的这一座里程碑的那一刻,对我而言,是苦乐参半的,最后,我想诚心感谢张惠华大律师和林淑儿法律助理,你们使我的暑假见习时光非常有意义,丰富以及充裕。
