H&P lawyers in Bangkok have worked with Thai and foreign art collectors in Thailand due to the rise of private clients interested in buying pieces of art and Asian antiques. Our law firm in Thailand is one of the few law firms with credentials in advisory services to secure purchases of art pieces and antiques in Thailand.
The regulation to preserve and control the illegal trading of the national heritage is the Act on Ancient Monuments, Antiques, Objects of Art and National Museums, B.E.2504 (1961), last amended by the Act on Ancient Monuments, Antiques, Objects of Art and National Museums (No.2), B.E.2535 (1992). The protection of this Act covers the ancient monuments, antiques and objects of art.
H&P strongly recommends to engage a law firm with expertise in this field to minimize the legal risks in the purchase of art pieces and sculptures, as there is sometimes a thing line that separate the protection of the national heritage and the interests of family offices and private individuals in Thailand.
In 2022, H&P became a curator of a large collection of art works of Thai artists and nowadays is the only law firm in Thailand with its own art collection.
