Corporate and M&A

Within: Corporate and M&A

The regional M&A team at DFDL Legal & Tax includes Thailand-based lawyers with local and international experience, who benefit from the support of colleagues based in other ASEAN countries. The firm's China and India desks, both of which are led by Bangkok-based partners, are additional draws for Chinese and Indian investors. The China desk in particular was strengthened by the hire of Oliver James Ting in March 2018, who re-joined the firm from an in-house position in Beijing. Energy, mining and infrastructure-related M&A is a mainstay, with recent highlights including the firm advising Royal Dutch Shell on the sale of its stake in the Bongkot natural gas field to PTTEP; this matter was handled by a cross-office team including Thailand managing director Audray Souche, Kraisorn Rueangkul and legal adviser Prateep Lumrungruang. Other names to note include Rashane Leerabandhu, who has over 30 years of legal experience, and Nipaporn Supha-Utchaichan, who is noted for her 'crystal clear, objective and practical advice’.

TMT

Within: TMT

The fintech team at DFDL Legal & Tax sits within the broader banking and finance department. It provides an extensive range of services to internet, technology and financial services companies, from licensing and IP to data privacy and employee agreements. The group has also seen an uptick in work from e-commerce companies. Much of its work is cross-border and multi-disciplinary in nature, requiring close cooperation between the firm's offices. In a recent example, Vinay Ahuja and Kraisorn Rueangkul worked alongside colleagues in Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines to advise Gobi Partners on the Series A funding round of logistics platform start-up Deliveree. Ivy Liu is another name to note; she regularly advises China-based technology companies with operations in Thailand. In recent work, she advised a Chinese cloud computing and network security solutions company on legal and compliance issues relevant to its Thai subsidiaries.
