On September 20th, 2019, the Mahanakorn Partners Group celebrated its 20th anniversary in the Bangkok Headquarters along with over two-hundred guests, who included members of the Royal Thai Government, high-ranking officials of the Royal Thai Armed Forces, members of the Board of the Thai Bar Association and the Lawyers Council of Thailand, representatives of European and North American Embassies—such as the Ambassador of the European Union, H.E. Mr. Pirkka Tapiola, the Ambassador of Italy, H.E. Mr. Lorenzo Galanti, Economic Officer of the U.S. Embassy, Mr. Eric Groff, among others—and, of course, many clients who have been with MPG for the best part of the past two decades.
Mahanakorn Partners welcomed the distinguished guests with the ambiance of a classical music duo, a harpist and a violinist from the Royal Bangkok Symphony Music School. Guests enjoyed gourmet delicacies and imported wines atop the Kian Gwan House III, overlooking lush Lumphini Park. MPG Chairman, Mr. Luca Bernardinetti, and Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Khun Vilasinee Thephasadin Na Ayuthaya, together with MPG Partners, directors and staff, were privileged to share MPG’s two-decade history with new and old friends, in this private gathering to commemorate the founding of the original member of the Mahanakorn Partners Group, Vimami Consulting, in 1999. Established to provide legal services in English and German in both Phuket and Bangkok, the firm quickly established itself as a reputable advocate for expatriate and Thai clients. To keep pace with its steady growth, the acquisitions of new companies and the addition of several corporate divisions, Vimami was reorganized as the Mahanakorn Partners Group. Today, the Mahanakorn Partners Group employs accomplished lawyers, chartered accountants, auditors and international management consultants. Headquartered in Bangkok, with an ASEAN presence and a global footprint, MPG has received many accolades over the years and is consistently one of the most recommended law firms by virtually all Embassies and Chambers of Commerce in Thailand.
