Year 2013

Thailand Tax Firm of the Year 2013

PwC Thailand has been named ‘Firm of the Year 2013’ for its Taxation Practice in the Thailand jurisdiction by Pacific Business Press’ Asian-MENA Counsel magazine.

The results are based entirely on the votes and testimonials of in-house counsel and corporate decision-makers surveyed as part of the 7th annual Asian-MENA Counsel – In-House Community ‘Representing Corporate Asia & Middle East’ Survey. More than 20,000 pre-qualified in-house counsel and buyers of legal services were invited to participate in this survey. Participants were asked, among other things, for their comments on the quality and value of service they received from external counsel in their jurisdiction, and where applicable, in other jurisdictions, and which firms they ‘prefer to use’ for various activities. The results don’t indicate which law firms have been the most active in any given area, but rather those private practice teams whose service has been of meritable quality and who have been responsive to their clients’ needs beyond the norm.

About Asian-MENA Counsel magazine

The only monthly magazine that specifically addresses the concerns of in-house lawyers across the region, Asian-MENA Counsel provides thought-provoking analysis and discussion of vital legal, regulatory and business issues, together with news and profiles of leading in-house practitioners.

"The marketplace is changing quickly, with greater external pressure and competition, so it's good to see that all ACQ Global Awards 2013 winners are showing no signs of complacency. Far from it, this year's nominations show that the market continues to spearhead solutions that allow it to stay at the top of the game.

Voting closed in February 2013. The total number of nominations received stood at an amazing 8762 representing a 15.2% response rate. In judging these awards we have studied the nominations made by our voters and recognise that all of those nominated are leaders in their fields but the exceptional performances of some deserve recognition.

On behalf of ACQ, I personally would like to thank our sponsors for contributing to the success of these awards and encourage all in the marketplace, whether its businesses large or small, individuals in niche sectors or the genuine icons of the “game” to continue to pioneer and nurture new talent." said Jake Robson, Editor in Chief of ACQ magazine.

Kathryn Turner, Chief Coordinator, of the AI M&A Awards, underlined the core strengths of the winners: “During times of economic uncertainty many fail; however, the AI M&A winners have defeated the odds and come into their own. The talent, ingenuity and down-right hard work of all of our winners, in what is still a very competitive market, is living proof that good business can still be done”. Kathryn went on to say: “I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the support provided by Preqin and DealGate, both of whom by way of their promotional activity, helped us to achieve a record number of votes, making this year’s AI winners the most representative in the industry”.

The Acquisition International M&A winners have rallied well from boom to bust, they proved resilient and are superb examples of excellence. Key to their success has been, more than ever, the ability to adapt and act creatively in business and their exceptional performance is expected to continue into next year and beyond.
