Watson Farley & Williams (“WFW”) is delighted to announce that Lui Ratprasatporn, a lawyer with in-depth experience and expertise in corporate & commercial law, has joined the firm’s Bangkok office as a Partner. She previously worked at a leading Thai law firm Tilleke and Gibbins (“T&G”), whose corporate and commercial department she headed up for over a decade.
Lui advises domestic and international clients on investing and conducting business in Thailand. She specialises in compliance and legal requirements in relation to corporate and commercial operations, M&A, and foreign investment, advising on investment regulations, ownership structures and necessary licenses and permits for foreign investors as well as establishing legal entities (e.g., joint venture companies, wholly-owned subsidiaries and branch offices), including commercial contracts, such as distributorship, sale and purchase, loan and franchise agreements.
Also joining WFW Bangkok alongside Lui are Senior Associate Kasma Visitkitjakarn and Associate Passanan Suwannoi.
Bangkok Office Head Steven Burkill said: “It is a great pleasure to welcome one of Thailand’s leading corporate lawyers to WFW. Lui and her team’s stellar reputation and wide-ranging expertise will not only broaden our corporate offering in Thailand, but also strengthen WFW’s standing as leading legal advisers across the entire Asia-Pacific region”.
Lui added: “I’m excited to be joining WFW. Not only do the firm’s values and working principles match my own, its standing as one of the leading international law firms in Thailand is recognised by all. This is a fantastic opportunity for me and my team to collaborate with our new colleagues in Bangkok and across WFW’s international network. I especially look forward to working closely with Bangkok Corporate Partner Christopher Osborne and Asia Corporate Head Linh Doan to help further grow the firm’s corporate capabilities both in Thailand and across the Asia Pacific region”.
