The Dej-Udom & Associates “China Desk”
The Thai government has eased its foreign economic policy to help improve Thailand’s competitiveness including the promotion of foreign investment incentive policies and the completion of major infrastructure projects. Thailand’s friendly foreign investment policy has attracted many Chinese enterprises to invest into Thailand every year.
Dej-Udom Associates Attorney-at-Law knows that a thorough enterprise legal compliance program plays a significant role for Chinese enterprises operating in Thailand. Therefore, we set up a “China Desk” in 2018, which is a professional team providing legal services specifically to Chinese enterprises. Our Chinese Desk consists of 40 local Thai and international lawyers and the team members are fluent in Thai, English, and Mandarin. Based on our 30 years of practical legal experience, we are experts in Thailand’s laws and regulations and understand and can anticipate our Chinese clients’ needs. By integrating Thai and Chinese legal cultures, Dej-Udom & Associates can provide superior legal consultation services in Mandarin for investors and Chinese enterprises in Thailand.
