Capital Markets

With nearly 30-year experience of our partners in capital and financial markets, we are very well placed to advise a broad range of Thai securities laws, including not only regulatory and compliance, but also a variety of equity and debt capital markets transactions and REITs. Our team has extensive experience as Thai counsels in a number of high profile concurrent equity domestic and international offerings under Rule 144A and Regulation S of U.S. Securities Act, including a number of ground breaking transactions in Thailand history. Apart from Thai, foreign and multinational corporations, our clients include both Thai and foreign investment banks and world leading PEs and offshore funds.

As part of our integrated services, we offer assistance to our clients who are publicly listed companies for their regulatory compliance and beyond Thailand foreign entities, banks, corporate and funds, wishing to offer securities in Thailand and ESOP for their group employees in Thailand.
