Jo Anne Kor

Specialisation: Commercial, Property


Jo Anne joined Asia Pacific Lawyers in July 2012 and specialises in the area of Property and Commercial Law. She read law at University of Malaya, Malaysia and graduated with Honours in Bachelor of Laws in 2008.

Two of her most cherished achievements during her university years were when she completed her thesis with distinction on "The Rights of Transsexuals in the Islamic Perspective" and when she was awarded best student in Banking Law by one of Malaysia’s leading law firms, Shook Lin & Bok. She commenced her career in Malaysia before moving to Australia where she was admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Victoria and resumed legal practice.

Jo Anne has previously been involved in and handled a variety of matters including corporate restructuring, separation and divorce, preparing Wills and Power of Attorney documents, litigation and insolvency. The experience gained from her prior course of practice has provided her the ability to apply to her knowledge in providing practical legal solutions.

A number of her previous distinguished involvements include:

  • assisting in a major restructuring project for one of the leading companies in Malaysia, The Lion Group;
  • drafting projects and development contracts for an affiliated foundation of a primary organization in wildlife conservation and endangered species, World Wildlife Fund;
  • acting for the Defendants in a landmark case involving a collapsed Australian securities and lending and stockbroking firm, Opes Prime; and
  • preparing full submission to the Foreign Investment Review Board for a development project worth approximately $800 million.
  • Having worked alongside some of the most prominent lawyers in her past, Jo Anne has adopted the essential values of integrity, honesty and fair play into every aspect of her work and personal life. Believing in the highest standards of work ethics, Jo Anne always endeavours to assist clients with an aim of protecting the client’s interest.

    Jo Anne has a strong passion for music. Growing up with the beat of music and daily sight of music notes, Jo Anne considers music her second priority after her family. She spends her leisure time composing songs, having jam sessions, traveling and dining. She is currently (and almost done) working on compiling a list of places to visit so she could travel the world with her loved ones.
