BRS is among the infrastructure of international law firms operating in Thailand with a full-service M&A offering. Our mergers and acquisitions lawyers advise on a wide variety of sophisticated M&A considerations and transactions, from simple and complex acquisitions to major consolidations and lift-outs.
With the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) shaking up cross-border ownership and trade, and many of Thailand’s largest conglomerates wanting to make their presence felt on the world stage, mergers and acquisitions activity continues to grow across all business sectors. M&A can be complex; negotiations often take place under extreme time pressure, so it pays to work with M&A lawyers who have the legal expertise, experience, and infrastructure to act efficiently, mitigate cultural differences, and understand the unique way that Asia does business.
Our dedicated mergers and acquisitions attorneys have been at the forefront of such deal-making for over four decades, representing international clients looking to establish a presence in the fast-growing local market and Thai companies merging locally and expanding overseas. We represent major multi-nationals and emerging start-ups in the Asia-Pacific, and advise private and listed companies, private equity and other financial sponsors (including entrepreneurs and venture capitalists), boards of directors, and various independent director representations.
We routinely advise on negotiated and contested M&A matters, and assist global corporations and financial institutions, as well as lenders, purchasers and sellers across all major business areas.
Our M&A attorneys help clients to structure and implement strategic transactions that accelerate market and product extension mergers, horizontal and vertical integrations, conglomerations, as well as divestments and separations. Clients benefit from our local and regional knowledge and expertise in everything from joint venture creation and corporate restructuring to the setting up of vehicles for equity investment.
