The firm: Siam Premier was founded in 1990 and since then has grown steadily to become one of the largest law firms in Thailand. Siam Premier is a full-service law firm and has participated in landmark transactions and cases in all practice areas. The firm prides itself on providing workable solutions which take full account of Thai law and practice, as well as its ability to effectively communicate those solutions to both Thai and foreign clients. The firm's ability to assess the practical enforceability of new structures and ideas is backed by the experience of one of the largest and strongest litigation departments in Bangkok.

In recent years, the firm has consistently achieved rankings in international surveys that mark it out as among the best of its kind in its key practice areas. Partners, senior counsel and lawyers at the firm are regularly recommended in those rankings.

Siam Premier has over 80 lawyers in its Bangkok office and more than 100 lawyers throughout Southeast Asia through its strategic alliances with sister law firms Lao Premier in Vientiane and Myanmar Premier in Yangon. The firm is particularly strong in all forms of foreign investment (including foreign business licensing and board of investment approvals), providing its clients with a highly innovative and comprehensive legal service, combining local knowledge with international expertise.

Areas of practice: In a short space of time the firm has achieved a reputation as one of the best Thai firms in its key practice areas: litigation and dispute resolution, banking and finance, capital markets, insolvency and restructuring, employment and labour, foreign direct investment, immigration, technology, media and telecommunications, insurance, intellectual property, mining, real property and construction, taxation, private clients, projects and energy, corporate/mergers and acquisitions.

Siam Premier provides quality legal advice and assistance combining technical skills and practical knowledge to deliver clear solutions to complex issues.

Siam Premier has one of the most respected litigation departments in Thailand and regularly provides litigation services to foreign clients. Its banking, corporate and commercial capabilities are also recognised as first rate. The firm has handled many landmark transactions and test cases. The firm is also uniquely positioned in the corporate insolvency and restructuring arena as it offers a 'one stop' service ranging from front-end restructuring work to insolvency litigation services.

Siam Premier uses small, focused project teams, bringing in specialist skills from within the firm or from the regional Premier network where necessary.
