Legal & Tax

What we do

         We assist our clients at every stage of the entire business operation lifecycle, from first establishing a new entity right through to dissolution. Our services include, for example, choosing legal entities, obtaining licenses and permissions, and reviewing commercial agreements. When necessary, we are also available to help clients deal with tax authorities on their behalf.

         In addition to Thailand, we also provide legal and tax service for businesses in CLMV countries (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam). Our specialties in these jurisdictions are in foreign-direct-investment matters and intellectual property rights.

         In each case, we make every effort to understand our client's particular needs so that we can then customize our approach according to their unique requirements. We do not view our relationship with clients as a lawyer-client relationship; rather we are business partners.
