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 foreign desks to serve clients from countries like 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.

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.

The Bangkok office takes pride in its dedication to CSR projects and pro bono activities.
