Lesley Lim graduated with a Bachelor of Laws (Hons) from the University of Tasmania, Australia in 2009 and obtained her Certificate of Legal Practice (CLP) in 2010. Lesley was admitted as an Advocate and Solicitor of the High Court of Malaya in August 2011 after completing her pupillage at Samrith Sanjiv & Partners (formerly known as Gurdial Bakan Singh).

After spending a number of years in practise at Richard Wee & Yip, Lesley joined MahWengKwai & Associates in October 2016. She subsequently assisted Richard Wee to establish Richard Wee Chambers in July 2019 before returning to MWKA as a Partner in August 2020.

Over and above her practice and experience in general civil litigation matters and drafting of corporate and commercial agreements, Lesley has a strong interest in developing the area of Sports Law in Malaysia as she believes that the ever growing interaction between sports and the law gives rise to the need for a special and greater understanding of the sports industry and those related to it.

Lesley was nominated for the “Woman Lawyer of the Year (Law Firm)” category at the 2020 Asian Legal Business (ALB) Malaysia Law Awards and is a key team member of the Sports Law Practice Group at MWKA which won the “Sports Law Firm of the Year Award” 2018 and 2019 ALB Malaysia Law Awards. She also captained the first national women’s dragon boat team to the 2018 Asian Games and the 2019 SEA Games.
