Corporate and M&A

Within: Corporate and M&A

The corporate and M&A department at Siam Premier International Law Office Limited is the firm's largest, comprising partners and associates with substantial experience in corporate and commercial transactions, FDI, joint ventures and corporate restructurings. It has a proven track record in domestic M&A, and also serves as Thai counsel in multi-jurisdictional transactions. In a recent example, Chatchavej Chitvarakorn and Kanokon Worachanyawong acted as local counsel to a Swedish company on the acquisition of a 49% stake in a Thai med-tech company. The department's regular clients also rely on it for day-to-day corporate and commercial advice; Bancha Wudhiprecha, for example, advises a retail company on corporate matters and various commercial issues such as licensing and permitting. In other ongoing work, Wudhiprecha is acting for a media company in connection with the potential acquisition of a 20% stake in a Thai listed company. Linda Osathaworanan is another leading practitioner in the team and is regularly instructed by domestic and multinational companies.
