& Muhammad
BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW OF THE ULTIMATE
SOLUTIONS PROVIDER

The firm
capitalize on the drive to deliver their services
in their utmost prosaic approach as well as
espousing the apt laws for their solutions
I
t is a canon of the 21 st century, that the world today is much more
complicated laced with various intricate webs of issues including legal and
regulatory conundrums. In Malaysia, legal industry which is moulded based
on English legal system is still reluctant to adapt to more contemporary
setup. Due to the fragmentation of modus operandi and operational systems,
it is rather hard to achieve a networking of common affinities. However, one
of the legal firms which seems to go against the flow is Ram Reza &
Muhammad which seems to adapt to modern approach with energetic
outlook.
Owning up to their name of RRM Group which consists of various offices,
networks and divisions across the region and extravagantly proud of their
mantra the ultimate solutions provider. As not to forget their archaic roots
in the legal practise, the slogans In God we trust, to God we turn to, with

God we concur and God is our supreme judge hang steadfast on the walls
of their conference room, as reminder RRM is still a legal firm.
Their offices in Jakarta, Indonesia and various offices throughout Malaysia
including Petaling Jaya, Kuala Terengganu, Ipoh, Penang and Johore Bharu
housed a total of 15 lawyers with wide ranging of area of practices. The
headcount for its workforce stands at 40 odd people, a very modest number
compared to the nature of works that RRM handles.
The Power of Group Entitativity
Upholding to their unchallenged
mantra of being the ultimate
solutions provider and having Mr.
Nor Hisham Haji Muhammad as
their ardent front-runner, the
robustly experienced Managing
Partner believes in the general
enjoyment of working in teams
and the positive vibes attained,
alongside with a sense of pride
that stems from the group
entitativity.
Operational-wise,
entitativity can also be defined as
perceiving
a
collection
of
individuals as possessing unity and
coherence working under one roof
and that is what the Managing
Partner has been trying to cultivate
in his teams as to galvanize the
smooth services to their clientele
base.

PT RRM INTERNATIONAL /JAKARTA INTERNATIONAL OFFICE

A new market is not an unknown run, it is a


business opportunity".

he value
borders

of
crossmarket
penetrations
has taken its
cognizance in
Malaysian
business fields
for decades in
pursuit
of
expanding their
network
and
market regionally and internationally. Indonesia has grown to be one of the
most-favored countries for business market penetrations due to its highlypopulated citizens and rising demands. Empirical results show that crossborder activity is a two-edged sword: foreign intangible assets increase a
companys value; however, internationalization raises transaction costs and
uncertainty in foreign operations. In fact, the liability of intra-regional
business expansion appears to be much lower than the liability of interregional expansion.
Notably, as to fuel up the engine of
the economy, the additional costs
incurred of running business
abroad and setting up offices
abroad are often much higher
when venturing into other regions
of the world than when expanding
intra-regionally, particularly in the
home triad region. The longwinding
process
with
the
authorities is also a contributing
factor that minimizes the potentials
to commercializing the business
regionally.

Irrespective of the impediments


faced by the home region business
today, it is worth noting that PT
RRM International has come to
their rescue on providing the
appropriable and forthright avenue
to hamper the above said barriers.
The establishment of Jakarta
International
Office
in the
upmarket area of Mega Kuningan,
Jakarta has somehow brought a
new dimension as they serve to be
the one-stop service provider who
can assist the client with
everything from its incorporation

of
business,
their
legal
documentations and process.
The Pros of Engaging PT RRM
International

trained and cohesive team, work


together to conform to the
fulfillment
of
the
legal
requirements.
RRM Line of Business

The perk of using a Malaysian


legal firm compared to an
Indonesian legal firm lies in its
ability to provide professional
indemnity to cover any undesirable
circumstances.
The
present
situation and circumstances have
indicated that it is more difficult
for clients to trace and complain
against Indonesian legal firms in
Indonesia than to do the same in
Malaysia.
On the upside, PT RRM
International has been dynamically
involved
in
innumerable
commercial transactions including
in the areas of plantation,
construction,
oil
and
gas,
property, management, etc. The
firm has also been dutifully
responsible for various corporate
advisories
and
incorporation
and/or setting-up of companies in
Indonesia.
One of the prominent areas which
are seen to be well within the
firm's g r a s p s would be
Jakarta, Indonesia and from that
capital it broadens its control by
affiliating and networking not only
throughout I n d o n e s i a , but
internationally as well. The well-

RRM diversifies its line of


business to float in a vast, largely
undifferentiated ocean of global
market place, by venturing into
Plantation
Property Development
Shipping
Trading
Services
The normal options proposed by
PT RRM International for the
expansion of business prospects
would have to be:

Option 1
Incorporated Joint VenturePT PMA
Option 2
Unincorporated
Joint
Venture
Option 3
Local PT with Nominee
Arrangement
