Thailand Criminal Defense Attorneys


Chaninat and Leeds criminal defense attorneys are experienced in defending serious criminal offenses including “white collar” criminal cases, fraud and misappropriation, theft and property cases, drug cases and other criminal charges.

The criminal defense attorneys at Chaninat and Leeds have been assisting both foreign and Thai clients in sensitive legal matters for decades. Our lawyers have coordinated with foreign attorneys in transnational criminal law issues relating to extradition, witness compliance and multi-jurisdictional prosecutions and defense strategies.

Chaninat and Leeds partners and attorneys also act as trusted advisors to foreign embassies and courts.  We have been appointed to train consular officers of western embassies in Thailand.

Chaninat and Leeds partners frequently present lectures on criminal law for major law schools and practitioners concerning criminal law issues, and have published law review articles regarding transnational criminal law.
