Linh Duy Mai is an attorney-at-law with T&G Law Firm LLC (TGVN), a licensed law firm and IP agent that partners with Tilleke & Gibbins for local filings in Vietnam. Focusing his practice on the enforcement of intellectual property rights, Linh has helped clients in a wide range of industries—including automotive, computer software, cosmetics, fashion, and food—to protect their valuable trademarks and patents in Vietnam.

Linh was a top student at the People’s Security Academy, where he received a B.A. in English, with distinction. Linh served in the police and worked on the faculty of the People’s Security Academy before moving into private practice and earning a degree in law. His law enforcement background is a major asset when representing clients in criminal cases in IP.

  • Represented a world-leading ball bearing manufacturer to orchestrate an administrative raid. Approximately ten tons of counterfeit goods were seized. The infringer was then imposed with a record fine.

  • Litigated on behalf of a U.S.-based raisin producer and won a challenging case in which the defendant raised a copyright registration as a defense to trademark infringement.

  • Represented a world-leading manufacturer of coding, printing, and laser marking products and won a precedent-setting victory in which the court awarded record attorney’s fees to the plaintiff. Managing Intellectual Property  magazine selected the victory as its Case of the Year for Southeast Asia in 2014.

  • Represented one of the world’s leading biochemical corporations and secured a victory in a groundbreaking case of patent infringement in which the court agreed to enforce and protect an agrochemical patent for a foreign patentee against a local pesticide producer.

  • Won the second domain name dispute case handled by the Vietnamese courts on behalf of a well-known French cement producer.

  • Assisted a renowned U.S.-based consumer products and direct selling company in a groundbreaking case in which the Vietnam Internet Network Information Center recognized an administrative action to resolve domain name disputes and agreed to return the disputed domain name to the brand owner.

  • Assisted a British multinational pharmaceutical company in an unfair competition case involving the use of misleading trade dress by a local competitor. In a rare occurrence, the enforcement body in charge of resolving the case rendered the final conclusion in favor of the client without relying on an expert opinion from the National Office of Intellectual Property.

  • Represented the world’s leading motorbike manufacturing company to enforce its rights against all types of infringement on a nationwide scale.

  • Represented a major Italian confectionery company in raiding an infringer’s production site.
