– Our History.

In 2006 Mr Sebastian H. Brousseau and others decided to share their experience and build a new business to help expats in the area. In 2007 Isaan Lawyers was born. 2012 Isaan Lawyers moved into the premises they are still in today. In 2020 we decided to become better not bigger. In 2022 A new era will begin for Isaan Lawyers with its founder Sebastian stepping down from the helm to pursue new projects. Dont worry he will still be around to consult! This has paved the way for new owners and Directors in the form of John a British Lawyer and his Thai wife May who will drive the firm forward  and will strive to provide professional and dedicated legal services for clients in the best traditions of its founder, Sebastian.

Online Contracts. "I thank you for your help. If I need a lawyer in Thailand again I will contact you for sure. I also will recommend you to my friends."
Guy B. (January 2016)

David S., South Africa (case in Buriram)
Property, Inheritance, Civil Law.     

"Many thanks to Sebastian and his team from Isaan Lawyers for the excellent service I received from them. Having run the gauntLet of "reputable" lawyers in Thailand and their services (...)  I finally got results (against all the odds) and won my case in spite of not being able to be present in Court for the appropriate date. I was charged an extremely low fee in comparison to what I gained, and indeed: in comparison to what I had already paid in advance to the non to the non performing but ever-promising Thai legal law firm I had previously approached for help. I was treated with dignity and honesty and have no hesitation in recommending this particular law firm to anybody needing help as regards matters Thai. (...) I hereby happily give my permission for them to use me as a contact reference, and for them to supply my email adress to anybody still in doubt as to their competency and integrity."

Richard B., UK (case in Nakhon Ratchasima – July 2011)
Probate of Will.     

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Issan Lawyers for their handling of probate for my wife's will.  In a very short time I had all the necessary court orders, translations of documents and your assitance getting bank to release funds and change property ownership at land office.  Looking back it was nice having someone to deal with all the legal matters and I now realize I chose the right firm to handle this matter.  I will not be hesitant in selecting Issan Lawyers should I need other legal services in the future."

Trond A., Norway. (Case and work in Udon Thani)
Divorce, Translation and Legalization of Documents.      "Me and my fiancée used Isaan Lawyers to get a divorce for my fiancée cause her former husband abandoned her more than one year before we met. Isaan Lawyers did great work for a reasonable price, and my fianceè got her divorce easy as promised by jugdement in Court of Law. We have also used Isaan Lawyers to get papers from Amphur translated and stamped by the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs, papers to be used for application for fiancée visa. We will surely use Isaan Lawyers again when the time requires it, and have no problem to recommend their service."
Keith S., UK. (August 2010)

Notarial Services.

"Before we moved to the UK Issan Lawyers translated and notarized a number of documents for us including, marriage certificate, birth certificate, and others and all have been used in the UK without any problems at Government departments, banks, insurance companies etc."

Dan S., USA. (November 2010)

Prenuptial Agreement Online and others.      "I wanted to write a few words to thank you and your team for helping me and my wife draft and work through a prenuptial agreement prior to our marriage. I must say that your service is what all other companies in Thailand and elsewhere should strive for. Your fellow workers are a delight, so thorough & accurate, the kind of valuable employees that every company needs; you are lucky to have them. I have worked with dozens of law firms in America both business related and personally and without exaggeration your firm's work was equal or better than than I have seen there, and your pricing was definitely the most reasonable. Hopefully I'll get a chance to recommend you firm to someone else, and if given the chance the recommendation will be glowing"

Anders N., Sweden.(March 2011 – work in Phuket)
Real Estate Law - Property Contracts.     

"I was recommended Isaan Lawyers through a fellow countryman who is also a client. My wife and I live in Phuket, where everything is overpriced like there is no tomorrow and with the recommendation from my friend, I wanted to give a law firm from "out of town" a try. I was a little bit hesitant at first, but after dealing with Sebastian and his team, all of that is gone. The support and prep-work beforehand was excellent in everyway and for the first time since long, I have the feeling of not beeing ripped off. I am truly grateful for the services provided and I will return with any future needs I might have. I now consider Isaan Lawyers to be "my lawyer in Thailand" and I feel comfortable of recommending them to anyone."

L., Singapore (October 2014)

Surrogacy contracts, foreign citizenship of children and others.


"Once again we are very grateful and thankful to Sebastian and his team for helping us so that our family can be united."

Gary B.,(March 2013)
Usufruct, Online Services.     

"We were there approximately two hours. They asked us for an extra copy each of my passport and her tabien bahn, which we had. They reviewed the contracts you put together, had us pay 75 Baht and we walked out with my name on the Chanote. Thank you for a job well executed. I will happily recommend your services should the opportunity arise.We also look forward to doing business with you again next year when we move to Thailand, to write up our Thai wills."

Svente K., Sweden (Cha-Am – October 2015)
