Huey Miin practises in the field of corporate, commercial and civil dispute resolution. He has appeared as counsel at all levels of the Malaysian courts and in arbitrations, both domestic and international, on disputes covering a diverse range of areas. He also sits as an arbitrator and adjudicator in construction disputes.
Huey Miin’s focus area has been in commercial arbitration and arbitration-related court proceedings. He has successfully acted for clients in numerous arbitration related court proceedings, including both resisting and seeking enforcement and challenges to arbitral awards. A number of the reported cases he has to his credit involve arbitration-related issues of general importance.
Notable victories include successfully resisting a series of applications in the High Court and appeals/applications to the Court of Appeal and Federal Court arising therefrom for the setting aside of awards made in arbitrations relating to a production sharing contract between multi-national oil and gas companies (for whom Huey Miin acted) and the Government of India. The financial impact of these arbitrations exceeded USD400 million.
In 2018, Huey Miin succeeded in the Court of Appeal in defending a decision he had obtained in the High Court that set aside an order to enforce an arbitral award obtained in Malaysia against our Thai client. Recently, he also successfully procured the dismissal of the other party’s application for leave to appeal to the Federal Court.
The legal publication, Benchmark Litigation, in 2018 and 2019 declared Huey Miin a “Future Star”.
