About Us

As businesses today face a constantly evolving environment, a paradigm-shifting approach to legal advice is required.

Founded in 2015, Kudun and Partners is a modern and award-winning full-service law firm led by some of South East Asia’s most accomplished lawyers from a desire to provide more commercially minded and creative legal advice to our clients. Since inception, we have attracted many lawyers from various large international firms and representing various entities on transactions in Thailand and throughout Southeast Asia.

Clients value our responsiveness and distinctly commercial attitude, as well as our passion for developing forward-thinking, innovative strategies and solutions that respond to their unique business needs.
