In the first-ever Southeast Asia Awards from The Legal 500 on November 25, 2021, Tilleke & Gibbins was awarded prizes for Laos Firm of the Year and Vietnam Firm of the Year. The firm was up against strong competition in both jurisdictions, but won the awards on the merit of the breadth and quality of their work over the past year.
Dino Santaniello, head of Tilleke & Gibbins in Laos, and Thomas Treutler, partner and managing director of the firm’s offices in Vietnam, participated in the virtual ceremony by recording a video to accept the awards, discuss some of the pressing issues for law firms in the region, and share their thoughts on some of Tilleke & Gibbins’ strengths that contribute to the firm’s consistency across its offices.
The Tilleke & Gibbins intellectual property team in Vietnam also received special mention in the IP Team of the Year category with a “Highly Commended” designation for having one of the largest and most prominent registration teams in the country.
