History of LAFS Legal

– Your First Call for Lawyers in Thailand.


LAFS Legal is a boutique law firm, established as a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in 2022,  headquartered in Bangkok, with lawyers dedicated to providing elegant, comprehensive, and cost-effective legal solutions to businesses and expatriates in Thailand.

LAFS was established as a boutique firm by a group of senior legal professionals with decades of combined experience in major Thai and international law firms. The firm's main practice areas are focused on domestic and international private and commercial transactions, matters relating to property and conveyancing, succession and estate planning, litigation and dispute resolution, and contract drafting and negotiation.

The firm works with a range of clients, from publicly traded corporations and medium-sized businesses to private clients, but remains committed to ensuring all clients are afforded precisely the same level of care and attention to detail, irrespective of the value of the claim or “importance” of the matter.

LAFS Legal has found that a clear understanding and effective communication of a client’s specific requirements is critical to a successful relationship going forward, and this is something that the firm works hard to establish very early.

Those relationships lie at the heart of the firm’s approach and have their foundation in a sincere desire to help our clients grow and succeed both personally and professionally. It is the firm's belief, as a group of experienced professionals, that their project will ultimately thrive on the long-term strength of those relationships. Many of LAFS Legal's existing client relationships have been developed over a period of decades through the combination of a genuine understanding of the firm client’s needs, a meticulous level of personal attention and attention to detail, and the confidence and trust of its clients that the firm will always put their interests first.

“In an international context, we fully understand the challenges and obstacles that sometimes accompany transacting and doing business in Thailand. At LAFS, we offer a depth of practical experience – the kind that can only be accumulated over many years - which allows us to provide clients with clear commercial advice as to the likely outcome of a given scenario. We ensure that the correct level of experience is brought to bear on a matter, regardless of size or complexity, and focus on finding realistic and cost-effective solutions.”

In addition, LAFS Legal works collaboratively, both between its core team and its affiliated network of trusted colleagues in other major jurisdictions. There are no rigid hierarchical structures in the LAFS Legal organization, and on the basis that the work is a good fit for the firm's expertise, one or more of the firm's lawyers will always be conducting, or, at minimum, very closely involved in the work, ensuring senior-level availability at all times.

The core team is made up of experts in their particular fields, with proven reputations and significant high-profile law firm experience gained over the course of decades at senior levels. The team members have a demonstrable and exceptional track record of achieving successful outcomes for their clients in a range of sectors and practice areas. The firm uses this accumulated wisdom and experience to develop smarter, innovative ways of working and find new and better ways to solve challenges and meaningfully address the needs of its clients.

Operating in a Crowded and Competitive Space.

As a firm, LAFS Legal is acutely aware that it operates in a crowded and competitive space, serving a client base that is increasingly sensitive to cost. Therefore, the firm established LAFS with a clear goal: to offer clients best-in-class services through a small team of highly skilled lawyers with major law firm experience at very competitive rates. 

The firm achieves this with a lean and scalable business model, one that is focused on the elimination of the kind of bloated overhead and inflexible top-down management models common in legacy firms. The firm believes these models do not best serve the interests of its clients or their businesses. LAFS Legal hybrid approach has enabled the firm to develop strong working partnerships with professionals physically located in major global jurisdictions, and its core team has the stability of decades of experience working together and a proven track record of delivering results for its clients, with whom the firm has developed strong and long-standing relationships.

A start-up is never without its challenges, but the firm was very fortunate to be working from a foundation where it had an established client base with whom it had long-standing relationships. As a law firm, they are very grateful to those clients who continue to place their trust in LAFS Legal as individuals as the firm collectively strives to further expand its client base and practice areas. 

Maintaining a global presence is critical to the ongoing success of the firm's project and ensuring the trust and confidence of its clients, most of whom operate internationally. Being in the space for as long as the firm has means it has had the necessary time to develop not only a local professional network of experienced practitioners but also a network of trusted colleagues with whom the firm regularly partners in several major global jurisdictions, allowing LAFS Legal to deliver a genuine cross-border service to our clients. LAFS Legal's main offices are in the Exchange Tower, at the heart of Bangkok’s main business district. In addition, the firm has network partners who are readily available for consultation in the US, the UK, and Australia. 

Looking Into the Future

Going forward, like any business, the firm does, of course, hope to expand and develop further, but only within the framework of its business model and not at the expense of its core values.
LAFS Legal fully intends to refine and grow its business, but only insofar as it makes sense strategically, is commercially sustainable in the long term, and is commensurate with its underlying philosophy, its core values, and the best interests of its clients.
The firm remains driven by a combination of our prime directive: a commitment to provide the very highest level of expertise at a far more reasonable cost than legacy firms, and its core values, to provide those services ethically, professionally, transparently, and with the utmost integrity.
