Lawyers, our virtual office doors are now open. The Malaysian Bar Council and Legal Profession Committee recently announced that, after many months of deliberation, Malaysian lawyers are now permitted to maintain a Virtual Office.
The definition of a virtual office provided by the Bar Council is a law firm with a physical address, consisting of common office facilities and shared services operated by a Service Provider, at which the firm may meet with clients, receive service of process, and perform other services related to the administration of the firm and services offered by the firm.
This ruling comes at a time when people across the world have been forced to adapt to new ways of working, whether that’s remote, hybrid, or in shared spaces. At Common Ground, we believe that co-working is one of the keys to integrating flexibility and productivity into the modern workforce, and our award-winning design and philosophy have made us the regions leading co-working space. We’ve welcomed professionals from all industries through our doors, and we’re excited to extend that welcome to the Malaysian law community.
The full suite of professional facilities
Ã‚Â A shared office doesn’t mean you need to compromise on any of the services that you need to stay professional and efficient. At Common Ground, we have everything (and more) you would expect from a traditional office, including:
Physical business address;
Business landline number;
Reception and admin services;
Secure and discreet meeting rooms;
High-speed internet access;
Photocopying, printing and scanning services;
Secure mail-handling services.
Your privacy is our priority
We know that confidentiality is essential for lawyers to conduct their business with peace of mind. That’s why our services prioritise privacy: mail-handling for all of our members is managed separately and securely. Meeting rooms, private office suites and call booths are always available, and equipped with the necessary technology and protocols to ensure confidentiality and privacy.
We’ve developed our SOPs with your health, safety and privacy in mind. Professional physical distancing and frequent sanitisation standards are in place to the very last inch of our spaces. Common spaces such as lounges and meeting rooms have been de-densified and reconfigured post COVID-19, and all of our operational staff are fully vaccinated.
So whether you’re meeting with clients or receiving confidential documents, your privacy and safety are our number one concerns.
Solutions to suit any team
The beauty of co-working is the flexibility offered, whether you’re a team of one or 50. Customise your Common Ground space exactly how you need which could be one of our Private Office options, which is our most popular choice with SMEs, or Enterprise Solutions, in which the office space can be custom-designed for your teams needs. Whether it’s one room or the whole floor, you have the opportunity and space to grow however you need to here.
