"Mozambique has a situation where mining and power grid authority are under different ministries. In this situation the mine lease is shorter than the power purchasing period requiring us to secure a third party to supply in default compensating the power grind authority. Chris was able to help us to negotiate the terms and default mechanism."

Work History

Khai Kwan (Sydney, Australia)

Principal Lawyer

Sep 2015 - Present

I do migration and IP law at the moment. In NSW (Australia) I currently appear as a Solicitor while in Malaysia and Western Australia (where I previously practised in child abuses cases, I appeared as a Barrister, so its a bit of adjustment. I am currently actively building my practise by adding value providing an auction platform for my clients to sell their properties (see Violater,com) .

KHKWAN & CO (Malaysia)

Advocate

Feb 2009 - Present

In addition to law, I do coding and prosecuting before the USPTO. There is a difference working in litigation that only those involved can experience, for example finding the truth at what costs is a dilemma ? Spending hours picking on details which your client cant even remember by testing his or her memory. Persuading Patent Examiners that your case is preferred.

My first startup. I was doing my Phd (in concealing data or creating fake data) then at Sydney Uni. I also designed self-printing tickets before it became fashionable (barcodeticket.com), ran a domain registrar service, (under opensrs) and so on. Came up with other ideas like deposits bidding, now depositoffer.com which is patented.

University Malaya

Lecturer

Nov 1995 - Jan 1999

I taught environmental law and environmental economics at postgraduate level. I did not manage to get my students to be environmental conscious which was my goal. In fact I am disappointing over the environmental had no place in our politicians' at all until now especially in China where they are forced to clean by force now.
