Co-founding partner Mr Anuwat Ngamprasertkul was delighted to join the recent Legal Plus “Thailand & SE Asia: 5th International Arbitration & Corporate Crime Summit,” which took place at the Rembrandt Hotel & Suites Bangkok.

Law) and Company Secretary at DCM Shriram Ltd.) and Ms Dawn Tan (Managing Director at ADTLaw LLC). The panel was moderated by Mr Charlie Manzoni KC, SC of 39 Essex Chambers.

During his segment, Anuwat covered: dispute avoidance through customised contracts tailored to align with commercial terms and conditions; crisis management and damage control via the Thai ADR process; mediation for certain types of civil and criminal cases under the new Dispute Mediation Act 2019; the standard mediation process in the Thai court system, including in-court settlements and judgments; mediation and arbitration processes in Thailand, including their pros and cons in comparison with other methods; the arbitration process at THAC (Thai Arbitration Center); small claims procedures; and online dispute resolution procedures.

Thank you to Legal Plus for the invitation, to my fellow panellists and speakers for such informed opinion and debate, and to all attendees. It was an honour to be asked to contribute. The event offered an excellent opportunity to share and collaborate and advance these important discussions. Mr Anuwat Ngamprasertkul co-founding partner
