Although criminal liabilities are of key concern and often seen as frightening risks for many businesses in Thailand, especially for foreign directors or executives, business operators may find themselves currently unequipped or that some businesses are more susceptible to criminal liabilities than others.  

Criminal liabilities can be imposed in a variety of ways by numerous government agencies using different tactics just within Thailand, which could be a significant challenge for corporations, directors, and executives seeking to establish thorough safeguards to defend themselves.

This session will explore case studies and precedents of company directors being susceptible and jointly liable in criminal lawsuits, elaborate on the procedural steps involved from filing of a criminal complaint to dawn raids, highlight key risks which could extend to employees at the management level, and prepare businesses with the recommended course of action should their directors face accusations.

Are you aware of the complexities involved in a criminal case procedure and does your business know how to retaliate? Register to learn more and receive joining details. If you have any questions you would like us to consider, please fill them in the registration form.
