Allen & Overy in Thailand is well known for its in-depth knowledge and understanding of the Thai business and regulatory environment.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the market and a first-class team of international and Thai lawyers, we are one of very few international firms providing a ‘one-stop shop’ for domestic and cross-border offerings. This is why some of the world’s most prominent corporations choose A&O for their transactions in Thailand. Our team in Bangkok consistently receives the highest possible rankings from leading benchmarking publications such as Chambers Global and Legal 500.
Our Bangkok office is an integral part of our wider ASEAN network of six offices, where we offer local law capability in Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia, in addition to Thailand. Beyond these office locations our Bangkok team has extensive experience in the emerging markets of Myanmar (with our office in Yangon), Laos and Cambodia, where we have been involved in numerous pioneering transactions over many years.
