We provide comprehensive advice and services on private and public takeovers and complex M&A transactions and are regularly in contacts with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), and a number of other governmental authorities. The number and variety of deals with which our team have been involved give us a valuable pool of experience to draw from, and help ensure that we stay up-to-date with current structures as they develop in the field of M&A and corporate finance.

Not only have we successfully assisted our clients on a number of high profile transactions in complying with merger control requirements, including pre-merger filing and post-merger notification as administered by the Office of the Trade and Competition Commission (OTCC), but we have also worked closely with our clients in identifying anti-competition issues at the early stage of the transactions and forming step plan to secure clearance or complete requisite filings in a timely manner. On cross-border transactions, we have worked alongside leading international law firms in coordinating multijurisdictional filings for our clients.

In addition to global corporations, leading Thai companies, PEs and top investment banks, we are very keen in fostering relationships and being part of an entrepreneurial journey of start-ups and have been heavily in volved in assisting in various stages of a few well renowned start-ups in finance, securities, healthcare, retails and consumer ranging from a pre-formation, to strategic exit.
