Working in Bangkok

Just a short walk from the office is Silom Road, one of the main streets in Bangkok. The area is very popular for its shopping during the day and its bars, restaurants and clubs in the evening.

The Bangkok office enjoys a thriving social scene. As well as attending an impromptu evening in one of the local bars or restaurants, you may find yourself invited to a formal dinner, ten-pin bowling session or trip to the beach. Every year, our staff organise a weekend vacation together to an exotic island or beautiful beach resort.

Global Mobility and Client Secondments

As a global organisation we support opportunities for our lawyers to spend time in other offices within our network. Fostering our 'one firm' culture, international secondments are a key way in which we share our expertise, enrich experiences and broaden horizons.

Opportunities to spend time at a client working within their in-house legal team are also common.
