The article reports that former Coudert Brothers' managing partner Chanvitaya Suvarnapunya and telecommunication specialist Chatchai Inthasuwan will join DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary US LLP (DLA). Also joining is highly rated restructuring expert Lampros Vassiliou, who comes from a corporate debt restructuring consultancy firm. Suvarnapunya, Inthasuwan and Vassiliou all join the Bangkok office as partners. The move doubles DLA's presence in Thailand. In 2004, DLA lost out to Coudert Brothers in securing the vestiges of the two-partner Bangkok office of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
