After her graduation but before commencing legal practice, Li Vyen joined the Malaysian Attorney-General’s Chambers and served as a Deputy Public Prosecutor and a Federal Counsel. After her call to the Malaysian Bar, she practised a number of years in the firm’s medico-legal practice group. Her present core practice area is in employment and industrial relations. In the course of her work, she has advised various clients on the management and handling of employment and industrial relations issues as well as occupational health and safety concerns. Her clientele extends from large multi-national corporations to small and medium enterprises. In addition, she also represents clients in claims and appeals before the Courts.

Li Vyen’s performance as a litigator has been recognised: the legal publication Benchmark Litigation named her as a “Future Star” in its 2019 – 2021 editions. Notably, she was named as a “Next Generation Partner” by Asia Pacific Legal 500 in its 2022 edition, where a client was reported as describing her as “highly competent and my trusted employment lawyer when I have contentious employment matters in Malaysia. She’s quick to respond and offers practical advice that’s easy to understand and implement for corporates”.

On another front, Li Vyen was a member of the Malaysian Bar Council Environment & Climate Change Committee for 2013/2014.
