KPMG Legal provides a full range of business law services on commercial and corporate law, mergers & acquisitions and reorganisation, employment law, legal compliance and investigation, and privacy laws, the firm said.
In Thailand, there is an increasing need for businesses to implement transformation programmes that need an integrated legal approach and business methodologies, not just pure legal advice, the company said.
KPMG Legal is able to offer an end-to-end holistic approach for businesses in Thailand and the region, it added.
“At KPMG, we believe in being proactive,” said Charoen Phosamritlert, CEO of KPMG in Thailand, Myanmar and Laos. “We need to be able to identify future trends and upcoming industries in order to be ready with our team of experts to serve our clients. With KPMG Legal and our strong background in various business industries, we will be able to provide our customers with a holistic legal counsel service backed by a team of business-savvy legal advisers,” he added.
“The launch of KPMG Legal in Thailand reflects KPMG’s global strategy to grow its services network and capability,” said Stuart Fuller, global head of Legal Services and Asia Pacific leader for Legal Services, KPMG International.
“The increasing relevance of the Asia Pacific to our clients from a market, business and strategic perspective has seen KPMG’s Global Legal Services network expand in Hong Kong and Shanghai in the last 12 months, strong growth in Australia, Vietnam and Taiwan, and now the launch of KPMG Legal in Thailand. As part of our Asia Pacific and Asean strategy, we expect to see strong and continuing growth of our legal services footprint and capability in the region so that we can best support our clients,” he added.
KPMG Legal Services has more than 2,400 lawyers operating in 79 jurisdictions around the globe. This network of lawyers, including those in Thailand, allow for a deep understanding of international trends and global best practices, the firm said.
