Doing Business in Thailand: AMCHAM Legal Forum | Thaiger

PHUKET: AMCHAM will hold a forum titled ‘Doing Business in Thailand – 3 Things You Should Know’, on Thursday, November 29, at Royal Phuket Marina.

Three top international lawyers will be on hand to talk about how to do business without Thai nominees, enforcing contracts through arbitration, and the increasing focus on criminal corrupt practices and anti-corruption laws.

The event is open to the public, and is free of charge.

The American Chamber of Commerce Legal Committee is heading up the event in conjunction with AMCHAM’s Greater Phuket Chapter. Anyone doing business on the island, and others simply wishing to be up to date on current legislation impacting nearly everyone, should attend.

The speakers are:

The work includes corporate investigations, pre- and post-charge inquiries, and subsequent litigation. Michael also serves as an adviser on the strategic aspects of claims management in international litigation cases; cross-jurisdictional disputes; and compliance with international anti-corruption laws, including the American Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
