Tilleke & Gibbins is pleased to announce that Sher Hann Chua, a consultant in the firm’s Bangkok and Yangon offices, was honored by the International Trademark Association (INTA) with the prestigious Tomorrow’s Leader Award—an annual award that recognizes two outstanding, young trademark practitioners from around the world who have shown exceptional commitment to, and leadership in, the intellectual property (IP) industry. Impressively, Sher Hann is the first practitioner in Southeast Asia to ever receive this distinguished honor.
This recognition comes as a result of Sher Hann’s outstanding multijurisdictional work across the region, most notably in Myanmar where she is at the forefront of authoring legal updates and publications on the country’s new suite of IP laws; her regular international speaking engagements on IP; and her prominent involvement in regional and global IP associations. In response to winning the award, Sher Hann stated “Beyond my personal dedication and commitment to the field of IP law, this recognition is a testament to the outstanding mentors and leaders at Tilleke & Gibbins that have been instrumental in my professional and personal development throughout the beginning years of my career.”
INTA is a global association of over 7,000 IP professionals and brand owners from over 180 countries who are dedicated to supporting the advancement of the IP industry to benefit consumers, economies, and innovation. In addition to the recognition that comes along with the award, Tomorrow’s Leader winners will be assigned an INTA mentor and will be guaranteed a coveted two-year term on an INTA committee.
