Commercial Litigation in Thailand

If you have a company in Thailand and you wonder how to claim your rights in a commercial dispute you can resort to litigation. This is a way through which the infringement of the contract by the other party can be confirmed in court, giving you the right to claim compensations. Each particular case of commercial litigation requires a unique approach, in the given legal framework of Thailand. You can call on the professionalism of our Thai lawyers in order to represent you and your case in court, and help you solve the commercial dispute.   

When can you employ commercial litigation in Thailand?

There are many situations in which companies decide to start a litigation process when a commercial dispute occurs. The Thai courts deal with problems deriving from one of the following cases:

– corporate or business relations which have not been respected;
– damages suffered by the board of the company;
– violation of the inner rules of the enterprise;
– environmental cases against companies in Thailand;
– disputes concerning contracts etc.

Commercial proceedings in Thailand

For those situations which are likely to be solved by renegotiations between the parties, the Thai law provides alternative resolution methods such as mediation or arbitration. However when a case reaches a Thai court can pronounce a sentence on a specific situation. The injured party is allowed to submit a lawsuit in Thailand if the commercial dispute arose in Thailand or if the subject of the conflict enters the Thai jurisdiction.

Foreign judgements can also be used as evidence in a commercial litigation taking place in Thailand. However a court decision from outside the kingdom is not enforceable in Thailand without further evaluation in a local trial. According to the Thai law, both foreign and local companies benefit of the same rights of representation.
