Mori Hamada's Thai office takes in former DLA Piper partner

Japan’s Mori Hamada & Matsumoto’s (MHM) Thailand office will expand after welcoming a former DLA Piper partner and a former Baker McKenzie senior associate.

Chatchai Inthasuwan will join Chandler MHM in January as a senior partner. He was a partner at DLA Piper and head of the firm’s Bangkok litigation practice until last year. He also practices at Coudert Brothers for 13 years.

Inthasuwan has been tasked to lead Chandler MHM’s dispute resolution and litigation practice.

The firm has also announced that it will welcome back Nuanporn Wechsuwanarux as counsel. She joins the firm in mid-December from Baker McKenzie, where she was a senior associate.

Inthasuwan, who has nearly 30 years’ experience, is known for his expertise in complex, cross-border litigation and regulatory matters in a wide range of industries, with a specific focus on the banking and finance, insurance, telecoms, ITC, IP, and construction sectors.

Wechsuwanarux is a specialist in matters involving Thailand’s energy sector.

“As we selectively add strength to our top tier practices, the addition of these two lawyers demonstrates our commitment to growth and exceptional client service in Thailand and the region,” said Satoshi Kawai, Chandler MHM co-managing partner.
