Business Law and Commercial Transactions


The legal framework regulating the conduct and obligations of private parties in commercial transactions in Thailand can be quite extensive in certain areas. In addition to the statutory laws and regulatory guidelines imposed by the Kingdom, private parties are also bound by the obligations they have created between each other.

At Korpniti, commercial law is one of our primary areas of expertise. Our lawyers have accumulated extensive experience across many branches of commercial law relevant to doing business in Thailand. We are familiar with all the common challenges facing clients in areas such as banking and finance, commercial transactions, corporate, employment, intellectual property, real estate, and tax.

We can assist clients with most transactional matters, including drafting contracts, legal opinions, advising on business dealings, obtaining licenses and government approvals, and negotiating with third parties. We can also solve commercial disputes. We have litigated countless commercial cases ranging from breaches of contract, debt recovery, employment-related claims, intellectual property infringement, real estate disputes, and corporate shareholder disputes.

We believe many legal and commercial disputes can be prevented or have their litigation risk reduced through the right deal structuring, attentive contract drafting, and diligent research at the outset of a proposed transaction. We always aim to anticipate and pre-empt potential issues, and to address potential disputes before they arise. We believe this is the most effective method of risk management, and most efficient approach towards doing business.

We aim to deliver solutions that allow our clients to get on with business and achieve their commercial objectives.
