Civil claims and debt collection
Advocates Moser & Partner files lawsuits with all Thai courts, represents plaintiffs and defendants alike, and conducts pre-trial debt collection. We represent clients not only in the courts of first instance, but also in the Appeal Court (Saan Utorn) and Supreme Court (Saan Dika).
Civil litigation in Thailand is often expensive, lengthy and less predictable with regards to its outcome than in Europe. Advocates Moser & Partner takes this into account: pre-trial settlements are the primary goal before we recommend risky litigation as a means of last resort. In this case, we have a team of experienced litigation barristers.
Good news is that foreign parties are not per se in a weaker position in civil procedure cases in Thailand, and we have a good track record of winning court cases for foreign clients in Thailand.
Thailand’s legal system is a civil law jurisdiction based on codifications as opposed to Anglo-American common law. Many sections of the Thai Civil and Commercial Code are surprisingly similar to if not identical with German law, as they are modelled after the German “Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch” (“Civil Law Book”). This is the reason why the German practitioner has an immediate understanding of Thai law.
However, clients have to be represented exclusively by Thai lawyers. Many foreigners in the distress that comes with litigation are in need of a law firm that speaks their language and meets their expectations in terms of case management and client care. Advocates Moser & Partner specializes in assisting foreign companies and individuals who seek reliable, competent and punctual legal services.
Thailand has a reliable and strong legal system with a proud legal tradition. However, the interpretation of the laws and the procedural rules and the modus operandi of the Thai courts might be very different from the judicial system in a foreigner’s home country.
The international team of Advocates Moser & Partner will define a clear case strategy and discuss ever step with you.
A typical scenario we encounter in our daily practice is the “failed investment”: foreign investors, not necessarily lacking business savvy at home, invest substantial sums in property or business shares without prior consultation of a lawyer and apparently unaware of the immense risk of losing the entire investment.
Advocates Moser & Partner has also broad experience in corporate litigation.
