Rising stars

Efforts to attract higher levels of foreign investment in Thailand’s entertainment and media industries are paying off, with revenues set to reach US$14 billion by 2022. Production incentives implemented by the government’s dedicated Film Office are resulting in record numbers of films being shot in Thailand, while internet and social media penetration is driving increased spending on digital advertising.

Kudun & Partners are ideal collaborators for investors looking to enter Thailand’s entertainment industry. We are a modern, forward-thinking and commercially-minded legal practice that includes some of the foremost entertainment law experts in Thailand.

To successfully penetrate this niche but highly lucrative market, substantial legal concepts across multiple practice areas are required. These involve intellectual property, contracts, labour and employment law and business associations. While understanding these fundamental areas of law are crucial, professional lawyers in this sector must also be business savvy in issues such as pitches and budgeting including financing agreements for television series and films relating to sponsorships, bank loans, co-production investments, acquiring necessary permits for location shoots and managing the channels of distributions for general broadcasting, exclusive rights or pay per views and actors/actresses/brand ambassadors/celebrity on their management contracts, licensing and other rights issues.

With a young, vibrant and dynamic team, Kudun and Partners is the right choice when it comes to the entertainment sector.

Contact us today.

We provide expert insight and guidance on various issues related to this sector such as:

  • Initial company set up
  • Permit applications
  • Entry strategy and structuring
  • Project financing including securing investors/funding (IPOs)
  • Exclusivity contracts and distribution rights
  • Management contracts
  • Development and production contracts
  • Intellectual property law
  • Tax planning
  • Foreign ownership restrictions
  • Licenses and BOI approvals
  • Ongoing general counsel
  • Disputes and litigation
