Criminal Law


The Thai justice system can be an uncompromising and difficult environment to navigate, particularly for those unfamiliar with the penal laws of the Kingdom of Thailand.

At Korpniti, our lawyers can advise and assist persons accused of a range of commercially-related or “white collar” crimes which attract criminal penalties such as corporate crime, embezzlement, fraud, theft, or motor vehicle offences.

We have acted for both aggrieved and accused parties depending on circumstances of the case. Although the actual prosecution of an accused is handled by Thai Governmental organisations, aggrieved parties may engage lawyers to directly file criminal cases for them. Due to the length and delayed pace of criminal investigations in Thailand, we frequently file criminal cases in the Thai courts on behalf of our clients in order to expedite the criminal procedure process.

We can advise, assist, and represent clients in relation to select criminal law matters, including:

  • Commercial bribery

  • Corruption

  • Corporate crime

  • Criminal liability of company directors and officers

  • Cybercrime

  • Embezzlement

  • Fraud

  • Insider trading

  • Investigations

  • Private filing of criminal cases

  • Theft

  • Traffic and motor vehicle offences
