KL legal community mourns passing of Ameet Kaur Purba

The LAW Partnership in Kuala Lumpur has announced that partner Ameet Kaur Purba died recently. The firm issued the following announcement:

It is with great sadness that LAW Partnership announces the passing of its intellectual property practice group partner, Ameet Kaur Purba, on the evening of 19 August 2022.

Ameet joined the firm in May 2020 and contributed significantly to the expansion of the firm’s intellectual property (IP) capabilities with her experience of over 20 years. The culmination of Ameet’s robust experience in handling her clients’ portfolios on an international scale and her far-reaching work catalyzed the elevation of the firm’s IP practice group to greater heights.

Managing partner Brian Law was quoted as saying, “As some of you may be aware, Ameet was battling cancer for some time. Despite that, she fought audaciously until the end.”

She was recently named an IP Expert in Asia IP 2022 awards and most notably, as one of WIPR’s Influential Women in IP in the WIPR Diversity Class of 2021 awards by the prestigious World International Intellectual Property Review (WIPR) publication.

Ameet persevered and met everyone with her optimism and cheery disposition, despite her ill health and battles. Ameet’s strength and high spirits are to be admired.
