Within: Real estate and construction

DFDL Legal & Tax's real estate team excels in hotels and hospitality projects and M&A. In addition to Bangkok, the firm has offices in Phuket and Ko Samui, which give it proximity to resort and hospitality-related projects on these islands. Paul Volodarsky, who is the managing director of the latter two offices, acts for buyers, developers and investors, and also counts leading hotel chains among his clients. Among a busy workload is his representation of the developer in a project that, once completed, will be one of the largest luxury villa developments in Ko Samui. The team also stands out for its track record in agricultural projects, both in the cultivation and processing stages. The team also assists clients on market entry into Thailand, including the tax and real estate aspects; in recent work, tax director Jonathan Blaine assisted a Canadian corporation on establishing a base in Thailand.
