As the leading international law firm in Thailand, our Bangkok office works on some of the most innovative transactions and major projects in the country, including representing a leading telecommunications firm on setting up the first telecommunications infrastructure fund in Thailand, and advising a major Australian banking institute on establishing its first foreign commercial bank subsidiary in the country.

Local expertise, global approach
As the largest law firm in Thailand, our team offers a full range of legal services. From routine corporate registrations to the most complex cross-border M&A transactions, our clients benefit from our ability to bring the right team to every matter. We also have specialized foreign desks to better serve our clients from Japan, Europe and China that are investing in Thailand.
A distinguished list of landmark deals executed by our Financial Services and Tax teams demonstrates our innovative approach to Banking & Finance, Capital Markets and Major Projects. We recently advised on Thailand’s first hybrid bond offering and first amortized bond offering, assisted a leading energy company in structuring the country’s first green bond offering, and helped establish the country's first publicly-traded real estate investment trust (REIT).
Corporate responsibility in the Bangkok office comprises two distinct areas: the pro bono initiatives our lawyers conduct and our social actions that take many forms.
Over the past 40 years, the Bangkok office has developed strong partnerships with local NGOs and charities as part of the Firm's push to help its local communities. We believe that our pro bono activities define who we are and our partners and lawyers are constantly committed to raising the bar and providing the neediest of society with comprehensive advice on a range of issues.
Alongside our clients, the Baker McKenzie office has worked on labour and employment rights for asylum seekers and anti-human trafficking measures with a particular emphasis on children and women. We also joined the rest of Baker McKenzie's Asia Pacific offices to produce content for the Anti-Sexual Violence legal guide.
Our social initiatives form the backbone of our CSR projects. We recently donated computers to schools and community centres in the south of Thailand and every month we partake in fundraising activities.
Since the start of 2019, the Bangkok office has supported the Bangkok Metropolitan Authority's initiative to fundraising for needy children. Further, the office has organised fundraising projects to support the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer Foundation and their hospice and respite care project, the Pink Park Village. One fundraising involved selling Thai desserts to support last-stage breast-cancer patients at the Pink Park Village.
This year we had two collaborations with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugee (UNHCR). Following the success of the "2 Billion Kilometres to Safety" charity run in June 2019, we also held a silent auction in December, gathering THB 263,151 to benefit stateless people and refugees.
The Bangkok office takes pride in its dedication to CSR projects and pro bono activities.
