Welcome to the Thailand Law Forum. Our mission is to provide general information concerning
Thailand-related legal, business and social issues. If you are interested in new developments in Thai law,
business or the Thai legal system, please check our News section. If you are interested in more theoretical and in-depth analysis of issues involving the Thai legal system, please see our Articles section.
New additions to the site include an
article on alternate dispute resolution
in Thailand by the Honorable Vichai Ariyanontaka, Judge of the Intellectual
Property and International Trade Court. We also have a commentary
on the new Trademarks Act by Khun Satyapone
Sachdecha and Mr. James Pate.
In other developments, since the recent election of the new Prime Minister, Thaksin Shinawatra, the
general outlook on the economy has brightened. Hopes have hinged on the
new national asset management company (AMC) to take over non-performing loans
(NPLs) from Thai banks as one remedy to the Kingdom's economic problems.
The new Prime Minister's political party. Thai Rak Thai (Thai Love Thai)
ran on an ostensibly staunch nationalist platform. Members of his
cabinet have alluded to stricter controls on foreign business.
Nevertheless, whether this rhetoric comes to fruition remains to be
seen. Thaksin's roots are in the business community and it is hoped that
his experience will help jumpstart the economy.
