Nopparat Lalitkomon and Waewpen Piemwichai Discuss Data Protection in Asia-Pacific

On June 7, 2022, Tilleke & Gibbins’ Bangkok and Vietnam offices collaborated with other regional members of the Lifesciences Asia-Pacific Network (LAN) to present a webinar on data protection regulations across several Asia-Pacific jurisdictions—particularly in relation to the life sciences and healthcare sector.

In the first half of this high-engagement session, Nopparat Lalitkomon, senior associate in the firm’s corporate and commercial group in Bangkok, was joined by top data privacy experts from Australia, China, and Japan as the speakers provided a comprehensive update on key legal developments in personal data protection in each jurisdiction.

In the second half of the presentation, Waewpen Piemwichai, senior associate in the firm’s corporate and commercial group in Vietnam, participated in a panel discussion together with the rest of the speakers to compare noteworthy aspects of data privacy laws in Vietnam and other Asia-Pacific jurisdictions, including India.

Tilleke & Gibbins is a founding member of LAN, which brings together eight leading life sciences law firms from across the Asia-Pacific region to provide clients with a one-stop shop for support and guidance on legal and regulatory needs across the life sciences sector, covering human, animal, and crop health along with food, animal feed, medical devices, cosmetics, and hazardous substances.
