What we do

Allen & Overy Bangkok is one of the leading international legal practices in Thailand.

We provide legal advice to large domestic and multinational Thai and international corporates, banks and other financial institutions on international and Thai law.

Our team consists of individuals who have direct experience in advising on numerous high profile and ground-breaking transactions in Thailand and Asia Pacific. With Thai and expatriate lawyers from Europe and Asia Pacific, Allen & Overy Bangkok reflects a mix of the international and local environment in which we practice.

The practice areas in the Bangkok office mirror the diverse experience of Allen & Overy worldwide. Our office is divided into three core departments: corporate, banking and litigation. These departments offer specialist practical and commercial legal advice based on many years of in-depth experience across a broad spectrum of legal practice areas.

Our Corporate team specialises in mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, privatisations, equity capital markets, real estate, employment and benefits and regulatory advice (licences and compliance).

Our Banking team acts as both lead international and local Thai counsel on transactions involving all types of financing including projects and project finance, restructuring and insolvency, debt capital markets (with a focus on securitisations and derivatives work), real estate finance, general corporate finance, structured and asset finance and regulatory advice (banking and insurance regulation).

Our Litigation team provides high-level advice across a range of contentious and non-contentious matters covering all areas of international arbitration, litigation and dispute resolution.

With award-winning practices, the highest quality training programme, a dedicated support team and innovative transactional work with some of the largest clients in Asia Pacific, Allen & Overy's Bangkok office provides unlimited opportunities for anyone seeking the best career prospects and a real challenge.

Our pay and benefits are more than competitive (both across the Allen & Overy network and compared to other firms in the Asia Pacific region) and we also offer opportunities for client secondments and international postings.

Practices in Thailand

Corporate and M&A

The Corporate and Commercial group undertake a broad range of corporate work. We provide a full range of business services to our clients, advising on business structuring, liaising with government agencies and advising on related business issues.

If you have experience in highly specialised corporate transactional work or more general corporate work, and you have an excellent knowledge of international or Thai corporate law, then we would like to hear from you.  Thai language, while an advantage, is not a prerequisite, as we act for both Thai and international clients.

We welcome applications from lawyers from Thai and international legal practices, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. In all cases you should have a strong academic record, a commercial approach, the ability to think laterally, be pragmatic and well organised, be able to work in a team environment and adapt well to different cultural settings. You should also work well under pressure. 

Employment and Benefits 

Gone are the days when salary and annual leave entitlement were the only employee benefits. Employing people now is a complicated business and for our clients, not knowing their obligations can be expensive and damaging.

The need to be alive to our clients' obligations as employers has never been more critical. Markets are increasingly global. Technology has increased the risk of misconduct and employees are no longer universally happy to sign up to working around the clock.

We are experts in all areas of employment and benefits law and nowhere else will you find a group that's both expert on local issues but manages the international dimension of those aspects as one team.

We would be interested in hearing from anyone that has experience in employment and benefits in Thailand or internationally. Ideally, this would be combined with experience advising on corporate and M&A matters. Please see our Corporate and M&A practice area guide for more information.
