Nuanchun Somboonvinij is a litigator in the firm’s dispute resolution group. She has handled a wide range of complex litigation matters, drawing upon her previous experience managing assets and employees for multinational corporations. Nuanchun’s business background, including earning a Business Administration degree in Thailand and an MBA in the United States, benefits her corporate clients who count on her for pragmatic advice, sound solutions, innovative dispute resolution strategies, and, if necessary, aggressive litigation.

Nuanchun specializes in preparing her cases, and her clients, for trial. Knowing the process of corporate decision-making and sensitive to cost-benefit concerns, Nuanchun prepares her clients to confidently commence or defend litigation and to take the witness stand. She has successfully represented plaintiffs and defendants in significant labor, breach of contract, bankruptcy and restructuring, and international trade litigation. Her clients include major stakeholders in diverse industries, including transportation and logistics, aviation, manufacturing, tourism and sports, wealth management, and consumer goods.

Nuanchun is also a member of the firm’s leading maritime practice group. She has secured victories in and out of court for international carriers, multimodal transportation providers, and shipowners.

She is currently a member of the Thai Bar Association and the Lawyers Council of Thailand.

 

  • Brought a medical malpractice claim on behalf of a plaintiff. We secured a very favorable settlement on behalf of our client.

  • Represented a former employee in a labor case against a leading university. We took the case and filed a claim with the Administrative Court for unfair termination. Our client selected our law firm because we believe in his case.

  • Represented the wife in a divorce case. After long settlement negotiations with the husband, we reached a compromise agreement supervised by the court and avoided trial of this sensitive matter.

  • Acted for a land owner in a civil case regarding access to real property. We succeeded in facilitating a mutual agreement between the neighbors without a trial.

  • Represented a client in joining a criminal case (as co-plaintiff with the public prosecutor) brought against the client’s former employee, who was embezzling company assets.  The employee was sentenced to imprisonment and a fine. 

  • Obtained court approval of a bankruptcy claim in the amount of nearly THB 120,000,000. Our representation included submitting the application for debt repayment, providing supplemental explanations and evidence, and proving our client’s right to the sum.

  • Successfully negotiated settlements of multiparty lawsuits involving the international carriage of goods.

  • Represented a multinational air carrier in litigation involving cargo damages and prevailed against a global insurance company.

  • Represented a subsidiary of a global multimodal transportation provider in a case worth THB 24,000,000. Secured emergency relief in Thailand’s Intellectual Property and International Trade Court, allowing the client to remove the cargo from its vessel.

  • Represented an American father to successfully regain custody of his child who was abducted to Thailand in violation of a U.S. child custody order.

  • Secured the release of a ship, which was arrested by a creditor of the previous owner of the vessel. We proved that the ship was not capable of being arrested because the ship was neither owned by nor in the possession of the debtor.
