In many business situations there comes a time when a relationship or transaction needs to be set down in writing. Contracts are an integral part of business relationships throughout the world. This is no less true in Thailand. Thai contracts are drafted everyday for many different purposes. A main hindrance to the non-Thai doing business in Thailand is the inability to read a contract he is expected to sign. Even if a translation of a Thai contract is produced, the contract is sill written in legal terms. This can be frustrating because sections of Thai law can be quite byzantine and because of this fact, complex legal minutia can fill many of the pages of a Thai contract. For this reason, it is often advisable to retain legal counsel that is fluent in Thai, English, and legal terminology in both languages.
At Integrity Legal, we can produce a Thai to English translation of a proposed contract in Thailand. This translation will be carried out by a Thai lawyer with a fluent knowledge of English. Once completed, the Thai lawyer will confer with an American attorney to review the Thai contract. This process is beneficial because a foreign attorney and Thai lawyer working together are more likely to see the “full picture,” of the situation. This means that the Thai lawyer would be able to more accurately assess legal and practical issues that could arise from the Thai contract. While a non-Thai attorney could analyze legal complications that may come up in his home jurisdiction.
If the Thai contract is made between a Thai and a non-Thai then the foreign attorney would be able to predict potential pitfalls for the non-Thai. Also, if the Thai contract pertains to an international transaction relating to Thailand, then this team of Thai and non-Thai lawyers would fully weigh the consequences arising from the multiple jurisdictions involved in the transaction. Possible issues that they would be on the lookout for in a contract between a Thai and a foreigner would be: conflicts of law issues between Thailand and another jurisdiction, unequal rights between the two parties, and possible legal ambiguities that could lead to unnecessary litigation in the future. These are just a few of the issues to look out for regarding Thai contracts.
It is always wise to have a competent legal professional review any document before signature. This is true especially in Thailand where a Thai contract is written in Thai script. Failure to retain competent legal advice before signing a Thai contract could lead to unforeseen legal consequences befalling the foreign businessman in Thailand.
