Legal advice and transaction support for foreign investments in Thailand’s roads, rails, ports, and airports

PUGNATORIUS Ltd. is the Bangkok-based specialist provider of transactional legal and tax advice on foreign investments in Thailand’s manufacturing and service industries as well as property developments and acquisitions. 

As a niche consultancy law firm and arranger of high-value transactions, PUGNATORIUS Ltd. is “fit for purpose” to vigorously advise foreign investors interested in infrastructure investments in Thailand. The law firm assists in identifying the most promising and profitable opportunities, advises on investment structures and regulatory requirements and discloses hidden risks and unknown hurdles. 

Infrastructure investment opportunities in the land of smile

Thailand is one of the most exciting hubs for contractors in Southeast Asia today, and its construction market is driven by public infrastructure.  Infrastructure improvements are planned all over Thailand. While various projects are already in a work-in-progress phase, the majority of investment opportunities are still available. Important development zones with more or less specific and scheduled projects cover these areas:

  • The Eastern Economic Corridor EEC
  • The Thai Riviera zone
  • The Southern Economic Corridor
  • China’s One Belt, One Road Initiative
  • The Thailand canal project (Kra canal)

Free industry updates and professional considerations on development projects, public-private-partnerships, Sino-Thai and Indian-Thai projects, and other segments are available on the firm’s webpage. These posts can provide only a low-resolution snapshot and are neither deemed to be legal advice nor do they result in an attorney-client relationship.

A “fit for purpose” legal and tax support of infrastructure ventures for foreign companies, investors, and financial institutions

PUGNATORIUS can guide your infrastructure project through the red-tape requirements, legal hurdles and industry practice in Thailand. Infrastructure lessons you do not want to learn the hard way. A specific consultancy agreement is available on request.

Each case is different. Telephone inquiries and ad-hoc email requests on Thailand’s legal and regulatory framework without details and documentation are not accepted by the law firm. Individual support and professional advice are available under a paid consultancy agreement only.
