Civil Litigation in Thailand

Thailand is a civil law country. There is no jury system in Thailand. Cases are decided on the merits of the evidence submitted and often alternative dispute resolution is encouraged and settlements reached between the parties are respected by the court. Actual damages are awarded, but punitive or exemplary damages are rarely awarded.

Whenever faced with a legal controversy, foreigners are advised to secure the services of a Thai lawyer. The main reason being that all legal processes are done in Thai language. Secondly, only Thai lawyers who are members of the local bar are allowed to appear in court and other legal venues.
Our advice focuses on resolving disputes as well as avoiding unpleasant, costly and time-consuming litigation where possible. When litigation is unavoidable, our attorneys will pursue all necessary legal avenues to protect and enforce the rights of our clients.
