Rajah & Tann hires 14 lawyers in Bangkok
Rajah & Tann has hired a team of 14 lawyers, including three partners, from Hunton & Williams in Bangkok. The move brings Rajah & Tann's Bangkok headcount to 30 lawyers and continues Rajah & Tann’ pursuit of expansion in the Southeast Asian legal services market.
The team includes lawyers from a range of practice areas, and is led by Surasak Vajasit. The other two partners are Melisa Uremovic and Pakpoom Suntornvipat.
“We launched our Thai office in February 2012 with a group of six lawyers, and this team has done extremely well and has overseen the expansion of the office to 15 lawyers within two years,” said Rajah & Tann Managing Partner Lee Eng Beng SC. “With the addition of this new team of very talented lawyers, the size of the office will be doubled and will be able to provide a full suite of quality legal services to clients in Thailand.“
