Career & Experience
Standing at a formidable six-foot, Gideon is the sort of person whose presence is felt in every space he occupies. More than just his height or his voice, his presence comes from more than 20 years of experience building his reputation as an effective counsel and tough trial advocate.
He has a cool, shrewd mind that sizes up people in seconds and dissects complex issues for clients to determine the ideal strategy. At the same time, he relishes the cut and thrust of trial and the cross-examination of witnesses. Tenacious in court or at arbitration, giving up is just out of the question.
Gideon’s gutsy determination certainly came in handy when he started GTRZ, barely three years after he was called to the Bar in 1993 in Malaysia. As the Asian financial crisis was in full swing in 1997, he led the firm through difficult economic times. He gradually built GTRZ into a prominent litigation practice, expanding its scope to include corporate conveyancing and guiding GTRZ to becoming one of the largest law firms in the state of Selangor.
To date, he has conducted and coordinated many high-value and high-profile cases. These include shareholder fights to take control of public listed companies, and cross border fraud cases. Heading GTRZ does not leave him with much spare time. But Gideon, an avid cook, enjoys putting together a feast in his professional show kitchen and spending time with his family whenever he can.
