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 with 5 partners and a professional support team of 30 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 & awards. The unique combination of varied experience and close cooperation among the partners brings a depth not typically found amongst Thai law firms. We have extensive networks which allow us to assist those entering the Thai market for the first time through recommending other professionals (e.g. accountants/auditors as well as potential investors for start-up businesses).
Key practice areas:
Mergers & Acquisitions (both domestic and cross border transactions). M&A is one of our key practice areas with over 100 cases in the last 3 years across a variety of industries.
