DFDL Participated in the Legal 500’s GC Summit Thailand 2022

DFDL team was thrilled to participate in the Legal 500’s GC Summit Thailand 2022! Our Partners Nishant Choudhary (Partner and Managing Director of DFDL Myanmar), Kevin Hawkins (Partner, DFDL Vietnam) and Jack Sheehan (DFDL Partner & Head of Regional Taxation Practice) came to share their insights on the challenges and opportunities for Thai outbound investments in Southeast Asia, in front of an audience of General Counsels from top companies and law firm peers.

Thai corporations have demonstrated a growing appetite for overseas investments in recent years, with Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos among the top investment destinations in the region, in a wide range of sectors from renewable energy to manufacturing, hospitality or retail.

ASEAN countries offer very diverse and sometimes complex environments to navigate, as shown in Myanmar where many foreign investors had to adapt rapidly to the local context – while others have grabbed new opportunities.

DFDL Partners shared their expertise on the legal and fiscal tools available for Thai investors to safely structure their growth projects in neighboring countries.
