Peerapan Tungsuwan – Baker & McKenzie


Peerapan is Head of the Healthcare & Life Sciences and co-leads the M&A Practice Group at Baker McKenzie in Thailand. Peerapan is one of the very first practitioners in Thailand to advise market leading cannabis and hemp companies as well as Thai conglomerates with their venture into the medical cannabis and hemp business. Peerapan’s long experience in the healthcare and life sciences industry and risk exposure in this heavily regulated industry allows her to bring commerciality and practicality to clients’ transactions and operations. As regulations are still developing and vary substantially across jurisdictions, investment in the cannabis industry remains a high legal risk. Peerapan and her team lead the way in this area, helping clients navigate the regulatory risks and exploit legal opportunities offered by the industry in full compliance with the law.
