Peter Burke 

Peter Burke has extensive experience in Thailand and is able to draw on these experiences to provide quick and sound solutions. He balances risk with commerciality and practicality, which is vital when dealing with the Thailand legal system. In my areas of focus, including debt restructuring and distressed M&A, and the resulting factors from these assignments such as employment law and structuring advice, Peters knowledge is exceptional.
