The newly released rankings in The Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2021 have identified Tilleke & Gibbins as a leading firm in all six of its jurisdictions throughout Southeast Asia.
The firm’s performance was especially strong in Thailand, where Tilleke & Gibbins was ranked highly in all 15 possible practice areas, including five coveted Tier 1 rankings in Customs and International Trade, IP, Labor and Employment, TMT, and Tax. Notable upward movement in the rankings includes a Tier 2 ranking for Projects and Energy, reflecting the consistently excellent work of the firm’s energy practice, and a new Tier 3 ranking in Restructuring and Insolvency, based on equally strong work from the Tilleke & Gibbins restructuring team, which advised major automotive, aviation, insurance, and other clients in significant, high-profile business restructuring matters.
Tilleke & Gibbins in Vietnam had a similarly impressive showing, with rankings in 12 categories, including a debut at Tier 1 in the guide’s inaugural Data Protection category. Other Tier 1 rankings for the firm’s offices in Vietnam include Intellectual Property, Labor and Employment, and TMT.
