Your guiding hand on the ground

Chinese investment in Thailand is reaching record levels. China’s Belt and Road Initiative together with Thailand’s generous foreign investment incentive programs have ignited a frenzy of new investment in Thailand by Chinese companies. In fact, China overtook Japan as the largest source of foreign investment in Thailand in 2019 partly because of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) linked projects. Kudun and Partners is at the forefront of this new wave of Chinese investment as we understand the importance of their investment throughout the region. In order to properly serve our ever-expanding Chinese client base, we are the first independent Thai law firm to establish a unique and dedicated premium business unit for Chinese companies with existing operations in Thailand or who wish to explore investing in the Kingdom.

Kudun and Partners have been involved in a number of high-level Chinese investments and expansions in Thailand, including the country’s largest ever property fund IPO. We are committed to continually evolving our practice to meet the needs of our clients. The China unit is simply the latest iteration of this commitment.
