The latest issue of Asia IP features an article on Darani Vachanavuttivong, co-managing partner of Tilleke & Gibbins and managing director of the firm’s intellectual property practice. The piece, which is part of a cover story on women in the field of intellectual property in Asia, follows Darani’s experience and development as an intellectual property lawyer. It also includes her comments on the work as well as her advice for young female lawyers considering a career in intellectual property. Darani emphasizes that the experience requires hard work but is very satisfying and varied because it involves challenges across all industries.
The cover story compares and contrasts the experiences of leading female IP practitioners across South and Southeast Asia, and thus considers the current status of gender parity in the IP practice in Asia, as well as the progress that has been made.
