Death Announcement - Mr. Albert T Chandler

It is with great sadness that Chandler MHM announces the death of Albert T Chandler on October 25, 2022 at the age of 86. He passed away peacefully surrounded by family at his home in South Lake Tahoe. Albert (Al) will be remembered as a great mentor, colleague and friend. Noted for his integrity, compassion and generosity he will be deeply missed.

Al co-founded Chandler & Thong-Ek Law Offices (CTLO) in 1974 and developed the firm to be a leading law firm in the Thai market. The firm subsequently integrated with  Mori Hamada & Matsumoto in 2017. He had an illustrious legal career, working at the center of some of the biggest energy development projects of his time. Al also joined Chulalongkorn University as a part-time lecturer for 10 years teaching international contracts drafting and later project financing courses.  He retired from legal practice in 2019, returning to South Lake Tahoe full-time 50 years after his first assignment in Thailand.

We extend our deepest and heartfelt condolences to Albert’s family, colleagues and friends.

Jessada Sawatdipong, co-managing partner commented “Al will be remembered, not only for his significant contribution to the Thai legal market and his work across Southeast Asia but also for the positive impact he had on so many lives and being a true stateman and role model”
