Chandler MHM Limited (Chandler MHM) was established on 1 January 2017 when Chandler & Thong-ek Law Offices Limited (CTLO), one of the leading law firms in Thailand, integrated its practice with Mori Hamada & Matsumoto (MHM), one of the largest full-service Tokyo headquartered international law firms. We are therefore able to offer clients the synergies of best-in-class Thai and international legal services.
CTLO was established in 1974, and from that date until integration with MHM in 2017, the firm represented leading Thai and international clients on a wide range of projects. CTLO had consistently received top tier recognition from international commentators and from clients.
Our firm combines an international standard of practicing law with decades of local experience in the Thai legal environment. Our team of more than 80 lawyers in Thailand is internationally recognized for its legal expertise in banking and project financing, corporate, mergers and acquisitions, energy and natural resources, foreign direct investment into Thailand, real estate, REITs/capital markets, regulatory, dispute resolution/litigation, restructuring and insolvency, and labour and employment law.
With the continuing interest in Thailand as an investment destination and increasing frequency of cross-border transactions, we recognize that clients have a greater need for multi-jurisdictional legal services. Our lawyers work closely with colleagues throughout Asia, drawing on international experience and broad-based legal expertise to gain comprehensive insight into the factors that impact our clients’ operations. With an established pool of lawyers in Thailand, supported by an extensive network of lawyers across the ASEAN region, we believe we are well-equipped to meet your legal servicing expectations.
