Tilleke & Gibbins is a one-stop center for all IP services, including registration and enforcement, commercialization, litigation, government relations, and regulatory affairs. Our high-caliber practice is internationally recognized in anticounterfeiting, IP litigation, strategic filing advice, and commercial IP work.

We help creators strategically position, protect, and profit from intellectual assets in diverse markets worldwide. Our success on our clients’ behalf has led to global recognition as a leading intellectual property (IP) practice in Thailand and Vietnam by such surveys as Asialaw Profiles, Chambers Asia Pacific, The Legal 500 Asia Pacific, Managing Intellectual Property, Practical Law Co., World Trademark Review, Asia IP, Asian Legal Business, and others. 

We are versatile practitioners—well-educated in the overlapping fields of science, technology, and the law by top universities and real-world practice in one of the toughest IP regions in the world. In Bangkok, our IP group consists of 48 lawyers, including 7 litigators; 9 patent agents with backgrounds in chemistry, biology, computer science, food science, materials science, or physics; 10 trademark executives; 60 support personnel, including a government/police liaison and a private investigator; and 24 technical specialists in various scientific fields, on an as-needed basis. The Vietnam IP team consists of 15 members, including veteran IP practitioners and patent agents.

We are educators—our IP attorneys provide free lectures and tours of our Museum of Counterfeit Goods to students of all ages, clients, diplomats, intellectual property practitioners, Thai and foreign police, Interpol officers, judges, government officials, and business executives. The museum’s collection is composed of more than 3,500 products in 14 broad categories of goods, many of which were used as evidence in court or seized in raids overseen by our firm. By viewing counterfeit goods alongside their genuine counterparts, museum visitors gain a new perspective on the extent and consequences of the counterfeiting of legitimate goods.
