Mergers & Acquisitions

Soon enough, the Asean Economic Community (AEC) initiative will launch. This will surely cause some concern and questions will pop up regarding cross-border ownership as well as trade. Many Thai businesses are also interested in making a global presence at this time. Mergers and acquisitions will continue to grow and expand as Asian businesses prepare for the AEC.

Mergers and acquisitions can be complex. Many times, negotiations take place under severe time restraints, which tends to add a lot of pressure and confusion. It’s smart to have lawyers present who possess the expertise and experience to handle such situations. Antares Advisory can disseminate cultural differences and help you understand the different way Asian companies handle business. We can assist you and your merger or acquisition in the most professional and timely manner.

Contract Drafting & Negotiations

All of our attorneys specialise in handling transactions. It’s always smart to have a written contract developed and ready for all parties to sign. At Antares Advisory, we will assist you with any contracts that need to be drafted, revised or reviewed.

Negotiations can lead to a lot of pressure and confusion. Let us navigate this important process for you as our attorneys possess the expertise and experience to handle such situations with ease.

Notarial Services

A Notary Public is an official who is licensed to perform actions such as authenticating signatures or documents, witnessing persons under oath or notarising documents. Notarisation promises authenticity of documents and signatures.

In Thailand, there are no public notaries. Only some lawyers are given the permission to operate as a Notarial Services Attorney. The Lawyers Council of Thailand monitors and oversees the notarial practices of the country.

Once a lawyer passes the professional notarial training course he can be registered as a Notarial Services Attorney. All of our certified Notarial Attorneys at Antares Advisory can perform the following actions:

• Verification of authenticity of signatures in a document
• Administration of oaths and affirmations
• Be a witness in cases that deem necessary
• Recognition and certification of documents
• Confirmation of the identity of parties to an agreement

Antares Advisory provides a full range of services for all your notarial needs.

Last Wills and Testaments

It is highly recommended that you have a Last Will and Testament prepared for both your home country and Thailand. It’s important to plan in advance so your affairs are in order in the case of your passing. A Last Will and Testament will help relieve any additional stress to your family during this time.

As a foreigner to Thailand, you may have a Will drafted in your home country already. However, in the unfortunate event of your passing in Thailand, it could become problematic in dealing with your Thai assets due to translations and government bodies. To avoid stress and confusion, we recommend having a Thai Will drafted for your assets in Thailand.

Antares Advisory provides services to help draft and complete a Last Will and Testament. We will draft a document that lists in detail your assets in Thailand. Your assets can include such things as property, vehicles and personal items.

Litigation

Over the last few years in Thailand, foreign business transactions have rapidly risen. Of course, this increases the likelihood of litigations. Although Thais are known to be non-litigious, the rise of foreign residents has tampered with and increased the amount of judicial system activity. Foreigners are advised to always secure the services of a law firm in Thailand when faced with legal controversy in the country.

Disputes happen in business and whenever your business finds itself in a dispute, Antares Advisory can represent you through the whole process. From negotiation to court litigation, you will be in experienced hands the entire time.
