Civil Law

Dear Sirs!

Every day, we operate within the legal framework of civil law.

Whether it’s car rentals or real estate purchases, acquiring goods, conducting business activities, providing services, signing contracts, or fulfilling obligations, we utilize the tools of applicable legislation.

The fundamental principles of Civil Law in Thailand include equality of parties, inviolability of all forms of property, freedom of choice when entering into contracts, non-interference in private affairs, unobstructed exercise of civil rights, restoration of violated rights, and their judicial protection.

One distinctive feature is that private law in Thailand does not distinguish between Civil and Commercial law. The Civil and Commercial Code of the Kingdom has been in effect since 1925 as a systematic compilation of interconnected articles organized by subjects, explaining legal principles, norms, and citizens’ behavioral rules.
Main practical applications in the field of Civil Law include:

– Legal documentation review (claims, contracts, court decisions, enforcement procedures, letters, insurance policies, etc.).
– Preparation of Contracts (Sale and Purchase, Lease, Loan, Marriage contracts, Guarantees, Joint Ventures, Hiring, Carriage, Supply, Storage, Agency, Settlement Agreements, Wills, and Services).
– Registration of property owners’ rights at the Land Office, handling transactions, and settlements under contracts.
– Legal disputes related to inheritance, divorce, property divisions, compensations, refunds for unfulfilled investment obligations, etc.
– Registration of Thai companies, protection of shareholders’ rights.

We would like to point out that the civil process involves the court’s consideration of all possible evidence provided by the parties, including witness testimonies.
