Global law firm Baker McKenzie is celebrating 40 years in Thailand by holding its flagship Asia Pacific partner and client event in Bangkok, citing a growing sense of optimism among local corporates as well as international firms looking to invest in Thailand.
The firm said it has grown alongside Thailand’s businesses and communities over that period, with growth being particularly strong in the past 15 years.
It said it has expanded and evolved its team to meet the “increasingly complex needs of local and foreign clients attracted by Thailand’s long-term investment and business opportunities”, and today provides expert counsel to clients across all sectors of business.
Thailand managing partner, Thinawat Bukhamana said: “Baker McKenzie has for four decades excelled at helping hundreds of major global and local companies establish and expand their businesses in Thailand, as well as helping Thai businesses grow internationally. The experience and expertise of our 250 lawyers, including 50 partners, is unparalleled in Thailand, supported by our global team in 77 offices across 47 countries.”
He added said there is a growing sense of optimism about Thailand’s economic prospects among Baker McKenzie’s clients, both within and outside the country.
He said Thailand’s position as an Asean hub and the trend towards greater regional integration under the Asean Economic Community is set to help drive that growth.
