Allen & Overy announces new managing partner for Bangkok
01 November 2021
Allen & Overy announces the appointment of Suparerk Auychai as managing partner of our Bangkok office effective 1 November 2021. Suparerk is taking over from Stephen Jaggs, who has held this position for two consecutive terms since 2013. Stephen will remain Head of our Banking & Projects practice in Bangkok and will remain actively engaged on client work.
Suparerk, who is Thai-law qualified, specialises in M&A, capital markets, corporate finance and securities-related law, and has more than 25 years of experience advising clients in Thailand.
Stephen Jaggs commented: “Since opening our Bangkok office 23 years ago, we now have over 65 staff including 35 lawyers covering Banking, Projects, Corporate and Capital Markets, many of whom are dual qualified. Our Bangkok office is an integral part of our wider ASEAN network and has become a hub for our work across Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia advising on market-leading transactions. I’m excited for Suparerk to build on what has been a very successful growth trajectory for the Bangkok office over the last two decades.”
Suparerk Auychai added: “Having been with Allen & Overy since 2007, I have seen the office go from strength to strength. We have built a market-leading practice advising international companies investing in Thailand, and a growing number of Thai companies on their cross-border transactions. I look forward to leading a diverse, high-perfoming team that not only works hard to innovate for our clients, but also works equally hard in supporting our local NGO clients through our pro bono efforts.”
