Sweet and Maxwell
Sweet & Maxwell Asia's Malaysian office was formed in September 1997 with the acquisition of Central Law Book Corporation Sdn Bhd (CLBC) by The Thomson Corporation as part of Thomson's plan to establish a foothold in the Malaysian legal publishing scene. CLBC started publishing the All Malaysia Reports (AMR), Malaysia'a first weekly law report, in October 1992. The AMR remains Sweet & Maxwell Asia Malaysia's flagship product and is fast gaining a reputation as the preferred law report in the country. In 1999, in collaboration with the Malaysian Bar Council, Sweet & Maxwell Asia Malaysia started publication of InfoAlert which is a monthly publication of comprehensive indexed information of current reported Malaysian cases. To date, Sweet & Maxwell Asia Malaysia has three subscription products, 24 monographs as well as 2 looseleaf publications. In this short span of time, Sweet & Maxwell Asia Malaysia's products have gained recognition for providing practitioners with topical and affordable local legal publications. In addition to its local publishing, Sweet & Maxwell Asia Malaysia also handles the sales and marketing of legal publications of Thomson's Legal & Regulatory companies.
