Mai has worked on deals alongside auditors; tax advisers and accountants so is able to see a client problem or objective from different perspectives and offer a rounded view in keeping with her experiences.
Mai has worked on several dispute resolution/arbitration matters including in relation to Personal Protective Equipment fraud and breach of obligations in trade deals. She therefore has an understanding, as counsel, in the issues and procedures of arbitration. She is also adept enough to conduct investigative work, observe state agency and private entity conduct and produce witness testimony for use in arbitral proceedings.
Mai often works on corporate, commercial and real estate matters requiring involvement from the initial understanding – Memorandum of Understanding; Letter of Intent or Reservation Agreement stage, through to transactional documents, deliverables and execution of completion.
Mai has repeated experience with receiving instructions on commercial issues and problems, analysing those problems in the Hughes Krupica team, researching the law combined with her pre-existing knowledge as a licensed Thai attorney-at-law, and converting this information and knowledge into a pointed refined and practical legal opinion for clients to present to their investors, boards to consider before taking decisions involving risk and strategy.
Mai combines her friendly personable nature with a young but open perspective on global legal and commercial issues.
Mai studied in Bangkok, lives in Koh Tao, works remotely for Hughes Krupica for its Phuket, Bangkok and international operations and will, with ease, travel to Bangkok or another Province to complete a task, attend a function, seminar or training and development program or carry out vital court, dispute resolution or transactional work. Mai is a modern example of a committed ‘remote’ worker but still with her team in the Thai jurisdiction.
