The legal system in Thailand is based upon the civil law; the cases are decided on the evidence presented by the parties involved, as Thailand does not have a jury system. According to the local legislation, any natural or juridical person (local or foreign) is allowed to bring suits against a party. Persons interested in solving a litigious case can receive the legal assistance of our litigation lawyers in Thailand, who have an extensive experience in this field.
Litigation in Thailand
If you are a foreign natural person or a foreign company involved a litigious case in Thailand, you are not required to be present on the Thai territory during the trial. Your Thai lawyer will act on your behalf and your presence will be required when the court will appoint you.
The procedure of the trial can become more complicated for a foreigner who is not domiciled in Thailand, as the service of summons is completed with the help of diplomatic institutions.
Our litigation attorneys in Thailand can offer you assistance for various litigation cases or commercial disputes. Foreigners are advised to receive the help of local attorneys, as they are familiar with the legal and arbitration proceedings.
