Dispute resolution

Within: Dispute resolution

Weerawong, Chinnavat & Partners occupies a space in the upper echelons of Thailand’s dispute resolution market, where it has achieved enviable successes in high-profile litigation. The litigation department works almost irrespective of industry sector, and is equipped to handle domestic disputes as well as cross-border matters, where it works closely with leading foreign firms. TMT litigation is a particular area of strength; the team has handled some of the country’s most significant telecoms disputes, which recently included Rapinnart Prongsiriwattana representing a Thai telecoms company in Administrative Court proceedings concerning certain questions of concessions, public-private law and contract law. Elsewhere, Warathorn Wongsawangsiri successfully defended an insurance company against a THB2.2bn claim by a company in the automotive sector. Other specialisms in the department include corporate criminal defence involving corporate governance and securities law; Sakchai Limsiripothong, who is one of the firm’s leading litigators, is a key contact in this space. Practice head Phisit Dejchaiyasak is well-versed in high-profile litigation and arbitration, and Pathorn Towongchuen has a broad dispute resolution practice that includes administrative law, bankruptcy and debt restructuring.
