Sweet & Maxwell


The 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  Malaysia has three subscription products, 24 monographs as well as 2 looseleaf publications. In this short span of time, Sweet & Maxwell Malaysia's products have gained recognition for providing practitioners with topical and affordable local legal publications.

In addition to its local publishing, Sweet & Maxwell Malaysia also handles the sales and marketing of legal publications of Thomson Reuters companies.

In line with our strategy to provide solutions to the Bench and the Bar, Sweet & Maxwell Asia(R) Malaysia is pursuing an aggressive publishing and marketing strategy in the coming years.
