Banking and finance

Within: Banking and finance

Siam Premier International Law Office Limited’s banking and finance team is well-equipped to advise borrowers and lenders, and distinguishes itself in the market with its strength in financial regulatory compliance. Recently, the firm has been busy assisting clients with various bond issuances, which included advising a real estate company on the issuance of two series of secured bonds to be offered through private placement. The firm's highly regarded real estate practice is a significant advantage and ensures a regular flow of instructions in real estate finance transactions. Project finance also features among the team's workload, which included Suttiphat Khamsirivatchara advising an investor on refinancing agreements for two renewable energy projects. Khamsirivatchara has vast experience across a range of banking and finance transactions, with particular expertise in structured finance, derivatives and capital markets matters. Nithi Soomswasdi, who jointly heads the practice alongside Khamsirivatchara, brings to the team considerable financial regulatory expertise in addition to an active transactional practice. Torsakul Cunvong and Kanokon Worachanyawong are also recommended.

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.
