Through comprehensive, independent survey work involving the participation of general counsel and private practice lawyers, Who’s Who Legal: Asset Recovery 2015 has compiled a list of the most highly regarded asset recovery lawyers around the globe. Joining this list among the “Most Highly Regarded Individuals” category is Thawat Damsa-ard, partner and chief litigator in Tilleke & Gibbins’ dispute resolution group, who represents one of just five practitioners across the Asia-Pacific and the only lawyer from Thailand to be recognized as a leading asset recovery lawyer in this class. John King, partner at the firm, was also recognized as a leading asset recovery lawyer in Thailand.
In addition to Thawat’s recognition, the accompanying editorial describes him as a “‘leading light’ in Thailand” and as a lawyer who “‘truly excels’ in the litigation sphere.” “He is sought after thanks to his ‘strategic approach’ in complex international disputes,” it continued. John was also praised for being a “‘trusted counsel’ for a number of multinational companies.”
This award highlights Tilleke & Gibbins’ strong business crimes practice, which is supported by Thawat as the firm’s representative to the International Chamber of Commerce’s FraudNet, a global network of lawyers specialized in tracing and recovering assets. Through our exclusive participation in this network as the member firm representing Thailand, we offer clients access to skilled asset recovery professionals in 66 jurisdictions.
