Noting the impact of IP judgments and settlements in Asia, Asia IP has recognized a civil patent litigation matter handled by Tilleke & Gibbins as one of Thailand’s landmark cases of the past year in its annual Landmark Cases issue. The dispute in this complex case revolved around the infringement of a patent related to the material sciences industry. In the case, Tilleke & Gibbins successfully secured a rare Anton Piller order from the Thai Intellectual Property and International Trade Court to seize crucial evidence ahead of the trial. Just prior to the rendering of a decision in the civil suit, the parties agreed to a favorable settlement for the Tilleke & Gibbins client.
The Tilleke & Gibbins team working on this matter was led by partners Darani Vachanavuttivong, Nandana Indananda, and Srila Thongklang. The team was rounded out by associates Areeya Pornwiriyangkura, Vasan Abe Sun, and Yuwadee Thean-ngarm.
