IAS Advisory enjoys beach getaway trip to charming Cha-Am

IAS Advisory recently returned from its annual company outing! The team enjoyed three days, from 17-19th May, in Thailand’s Phetchaburi province, near the famous beach getaway of Cha-Am.

We stayed at the lovely Vela Villa resort, located between the beaches of Chaosamran and Puak Tian, which is an area still largely untouched by tourists.

As part of the firm’s ongoing expansion we have recently welcomed several new joiners, and the resort provided the perfect balance of exclusivity and privacy needed for connecting new teams and building relationships and was an ideal place for us to relax and unwind.

The trip afforded us the opportunity to fully recharge our batteries ahead of another really busy year, as well as undertake various joint exercises and team-building activities in an ideal beach retreat setting.

Party activities included football, karaoke, pool/snooker, swimming and of course lots of eating, including several delicious BBQ dinners! These in addition to staff feedback and development sessions, which focussed on inspiring collaboration and engagement and creating a healthy and positive work environment at the firm.

The IAS Advisory team is already looking forward to its next adventure!

IAS Advisory included in prestigious Chambers Global Legal Guide 2024

IAS Advisory is honoured that Chambers & Partners, which publishes the world’s leading guides to the legal profession, has ranked the firm in its Global Guide 2024 for its capabilities in Corporate/M&A.

The accolade follows the firm’s inclusion earlier this year in Chambers’ region specific Asia-Pacific Guide, and is a credit to the efforts of the whole of the firm’s Corporate/M&A team.

Chambers Global only ranks practice areas that are renowned for cross-border work. Firms ranked in Chambers Global are considered experts in their field and the go-to contact for international legal buyers, attracting clients—from large corporations to niche startups—who are particularly interested in firms able to advise them in multi-jurisdictional mandates.

IAS Advisory’s Corporate/M&A department is led by Ms Siripen Kulworakulpitak, one of Bangkok’s most prominent high-end corporate lawyers and one of the country’s very few female law firm founders. Her team also contains rising star senior associate Ms Sukontharat Nobnom.


Siripen joins teams committee at 6th National Mediation Competition

IAS Advisory co-founding partner Ms Siripen Kulworakulpitak was delighted to join the committee for selecting teams at the recent National Mediation Competition 2024. The competition was held over three days from 23-25th January 2024 at the Thailand Arbitration Center (THAC) in Bangkok.

Now in its sixth year, the event brings together Thailand’s next generation of mediators and negotiators and aims to encourage greater innovation, creativity and leadership. Using simulations of commercial disputes, participants get to put theory into practice and test strategies and tactics in a fun but competitive environment.

The event offers a great opportunity for 2nd, 3rd and 4th year degree students to participate in a mediation from start to finish. They gain practical experience of the whole process, from ensuring equal participation, to gathering viewpoints, to determining interests, from assessing possibilities, to creating win-win options, to finally outlining an effective compromise agreement.

Participants also get a chance to showcase their skills, connect with peers, and discuss the very latest mediation and negotiation techniques.
