The key to developing a successful business lies not only with having good entrepreneurial spirit and skills, but also with having sound knowledge of the laws and regulations that affect you and your company. To help business owners understand and navigate the ever-shifting legal landscape, Practical Law Company, in association with Lex Mundi, has published the latest edition in its series of multi-jurisdictional question-and-answer guides to doing business worldwide.
The Thailand chapter, written by attorneys at Tilleke & Gibbins, gives an overview of recent developments affecting doing business in Thailand as well as an introduction to the legal system; foreign investment, including restrictions, currency regulations, and incentives; and business vehicles and their relevant restrictions and liabilities. The chapter also summarizes the laws regulating employment relationships, including redundancies and mass layoffs, and provides short overviews on competition law; data protection; and product liability and safety. In addition, there are comprehensive summaries on taxation and tax residency; and intellectual property rights over patents, trademarks, and registered and unregistered designs.
