Other Capabilities

As part of our main practice areas, we have assisted clients in various cross border transactions including Chinese and Japanese deals, and in various aspects of transactions ranging from bidding and auction sale, IPO and international offerings and listings, private equity and asset and investment management, privatisation and government relations and restructuring and insolvency (R&I). We also actively advise clients on a variety of regulatory frameworks including data protection, merger control and fintech and electronic payment as well as those relating to tech and startup companies.

As part of our M&A practice, we have been involved in a number of bidding process and auction sales acting for both interested buyers and sellers, including the government, some of which require that we coordinate, liaise and negotiate with some 40 interested parties. Whilst the great majority of these transactions concern equity in Thailand, we have also assisted our clients in buying or selling companies outside of Thailand as well as distressed portfolios.
