I am Salmiah binti Salim, and I am a lawyer by profession. I was admitted to the Bar in March 2007 after doing my pupilage at Messrs Lee Hishammuddin Allen & Gledhill one of the largest law firms in Malaysia. After my admission to the Bar, I joined a smaller firm Messrs Rajan Navaratnam. I was in charge of the Conveyancing Department where I was responsible for the overall progress of each files and I was also in charge of marketing for new clients and cases. After close to a year, I decided to venture into business on my own. On February 2008 I established my own firm Messrs Salmiah Salim & Partners. I have been working on my own to grow this firm and recently recruited a partner to assist me in July of 2011.
After more than 3 years of blood sweat and tears I can safely say that the business has passed its critical stage and is starting to gain momentum in both presence and number of cases. Currently I intend to further expand the business by registering as a panel solicitor for the various banks to increase the potential of getting more cases. But this expansion exercise will require more working capital as payment for panel work takes 2 to 3 months. I am confident that with RM100,000 it should be adequate to help my business cash flow as we take on more cases and more workers. I am confident that the principal investment can be returned in a matter of just 2 years together with a healthy dividend of 25%. Please contact me for further clarification on my proposal.
