Guided by a solutions-oriented philosophy, LS Horizon has opened doors for many companies to unlock the potential in dynamic new markets such as Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam, or CLMV.
A specialised regional law firm, LS Horizon is trusted for groundbreaking transactions and litigation in Thailand. From big-ticket mergers and acquisitions to project financing for start-ups, the firm has displayed sophistication in handling cases involving industries as diverse as energy, real estate, telecommunications and broadcasting over the past 18 years.
“We have good connections with the authorities and in local communities that help us find actionable solutions for our clients,” says Sunpasiri Sunpa-a-sa, managing partner.
The firm has 50 lawyers in Bangkok and more across its Laos office and associated law firms in Myanmar, Cambodia and Singapore. “We take pride in our dynamic team of lawyers who have proven their mettle in countless complex transactions,” Sunpasiri says.
For the MahaNakhon skyscraper project, LS Horizon created a legal structure covering overlapping rules for residential, commercial and hotel buildings, clearing the path for many more mixed-use building developments in Thailand.
The firm has counselled Thai bigwigs such as Solartron, Bangchak, Krungthai and SCB on some of their landmark transactions. It also represented Uber in the merger with Grab in Thailand.
For Japanese investors, LS Horizon has a dedicated desk led by a multilingual Japanese lawyer who is well-versed in Thai law.
As the gateway for investors entering CLMV countries, where energy projects are flourishing through joint ventures, LS Horizon protects clients’ interests by creating possibilities through lateral thinking. “We understand clients’ needs and give them the workable alternatives,” Sunpasiri says.
Standing firm on this culture of excellence, Sunpasiri invites solutions-oriented lawyers to join the firm in taking the lead in some of Asia’s most compelling deals. “We would be happy if our new generation of lawyers can carry on the legacy of LS Horizon,” Sunpasiri says.
