DFDL Legal & Tax's Lao practice group is plugged into the firm's wider regional network, and working alongside its colleagues in jurisdictions such as Thailand, the team is regularly involved in the largest project developments and cross-border corporate transactions in Lao PDR. The Vientiane team has strengths in key industry sectors such as energy, mining and infrastructure, and more generally has extensive experience advising on cross-border investment and M&A, and a litany of domestic regulatory matters. Lao practice head Kristy Newby focuses on inbound investment and M&A and also heads the firm's regional mining practice. Project finance expert Walter Heiser has particular experience in the Lao hydropower market, where he has acted for project sponsors and lenders. Also recommended is Senesakoune Sihanouvong, who specialises in Lao tax advice.

In 2005 DFDL established a permanent presence in Bangkok to better serve the needs of our growing client base in Thailand, especially those businesses and stakeholders investing across the region. Since then, we have expanded and solidified a wide variety of practice groups.

Our Thai team works closely with our integrated network of offices across the region to provide international standard legal and tax services, with in-depth and comprehensive knowledge of the local environment. Our legal advisers have practical experience in a wide range of legal areas, from the feasibility phase through to the operation stages of an investment project, and can provide legal and tax advice on all aspects of Thai law.
