ALB describes Donovan & Ho as “hard to miss online due to its robust social media strategy…”

Asian Legal Business’ (ALB) annual Firms to Watch list showcases smaller firms across the region that are able to compete with their larger peers for both clients and talents through a combination of quality work and savvy strategies.

Donovan & Ho has been named as one of the Firms to Watch in 2016 and is one of only two Malaysian firms on the list. 

What ALB says:

“Donovan & Ho might be young (launched 2014) and small (five fee-earners, including partners Donovan Cheah and Shawn Ho), but the firm is hard to miss online thanks to its robust social media strategy, which it uses as an efficient way of reaching out to new and existing clients. “We are active on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Our firm runs a regularly updated law blog which we use to share legal knowledge and insight from a more practical perspective,” the firm says. “Social media has leveled the playing field for smaller firms which do not have a substantial advertising and marketing budget, and has allowed us to make connections with larger clients, including multinationals, that would have otherwise been difficult to penetrate without knowing the right people. It has also given us the opportunity to attract bright young talent to join our firm.”

And by the looks of it, the approach is working. Work done by the firm last year included advising Venturra Capital on its Series A investment in Malaysian startup and it recorded an approximate revenue growth of 300 percent in a 12-month period starting December 2014. But Donovan & Ho isn’t stopping there. “We are looking to expand our services into new markets, both in terms of geography and industry,” says the firm.
