This case study will consider the application of Malaysia divorce, succession and matrimonial laws to assets held in Malaysia as well as foreign assets held in the BVI, Singapore and UK.
Interaction of domestic divorce and succession-related claims involving a Labuan trust will also be explored. Popular investment migration programs offered in Australia and UK will also be discussed.

This case study will consider emigration from Hong Kong to Malaysia and the requirements to establish a trading presence in Labuan. Application of Malaysia divorce, succession and matrimonial property laws will also be considered, both in relation to domestic assets as well as assets and property located in Hong Kong and Singapore.
