Lutfi Mutalip has more than 15 years of experience in advising clients on range of issues ranging from structuring private debt to building a better business contract. He is currently Legal Counsel for MyFinB Malaysia where he balances the legal risks and business goals of the firm. He is always mindful of balancing business opportunities with the development of policies and responses to issues.
Lutfi believes in advice that is focused on finding business solutions and using creativity to overcome roadblocks; legal counsels have an important role in business development. Making sure that advice given is practical and not too abstract helps achieve business goals that can lead to break-through solutions.
One of his own “7 Habits of a Highly Effective Legal Counsel” practice is to read a non-legal article on daily basis. This helps him to pursue learning outside of his subject area, especially those that may impact his business clients.
