We provide comprehensive securities and regulatory advice with significant experience in working with the regulatory bodies in Thailand, including the Office of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Stock Exchange of Thailand.

TMT (technology, media and telecoms). We have unique expertise in tech start-ups, new technology and media and have guided various firms, entrepreneurs and small businesses through the complex process of getting set-up in Thailand through sharing strategic and legal advice.
China Business Unit. Given recent strong demand in providing a bilingual and bi-cultural consultancy to help the unique challenges specifically faced by Chinese clients, in 2018 we launched a China Business Unit headed by Chinese born Mayuree (Lin Xiao Din) who was educated and has lived in Thailand since she was 14. She has been assisting Chinese enterprises for over a decade in FDI, M&A and real estate.
Emboldened by a vision to change the traditional working relationship which law firms have with their clients and create a vibrant new practice; Kudun & Partners Limited (KAP) was founded in early 2015 by four young partners who share a common passion of acting as trusted business advisors with unparalleled legal experience rather than simply as legal advisors. In a very short period, we represent the fastest growing corporate law firm in Thailand now with five partners and a professional support team of thirty lawyers serving both private and publicly traded Thai and international corporations as well as state-owned enterprises across the full spectrum of industries. Team members are bilingual with a strong command of English to easily assist our foreign clients.
Our partners bring with them extensive experience and respect in the legal community and have achieved both personal rankings and awards. We have extensive networks which allow us to assist those entering the Thai market for the first time in recommending other professionals to provide comprehensive solutions to our client partners.
