For the twelfth year in a row, Managing Intellectual Property magazine has ranked Tilleke & Gibbins’ Thailand IP team in “Tier 1” for both patent prosecution and patent contentious work. The magazine, which releases the rankings every year in its annual patent survey, determined the results through feedback obtained from firms and clients in over 80 jurisdictions worldwide. The firms placed in the top tier are recognized as having the strongest practices in the respective categories, and their positioning is said to reflect market perception between September 2013 and January 2014. Prosecution work includes filing of patents and associated work in a firm’s jurisdiction, as well as filing for overseas clients. Contentious work includes all other legal work, such as enforcement and licensing.
