Tilleke & Gibbins was honored to receive a special award from the Chairman of the People’s Committee of Hanoi (also known as the “mayor”) for the firm’s positive contributions to the legal field in 2013.
Managing Director Thomas J. Treutler accepted the award on behalf of the firm at a February 19 conference held in the assembly hall of the Hanoi Department of Justice. The conference, timed to open the “Year of the Horse,” gave department officials an opportunity to report on the results of 2013 and announce targets for 2014 for the areas under their supervision, ranging from legal consulting to commercial arbitration to process serving.
The conference concluded with the presentation of awards to 14 organizations and 11 individuals making noteworthy contributions in 2013. Tilleke was one of only six law firms—and the only foreign firm—to receive the commendation.
