Tilleke & Gibbins was named “Best Firm in Thailand” at the inaugural Asia Women in Business Law Awards, held at the Jockey Club in Hong Kong on December 8, 2011. Representing Tilleke & Gibbins at the awards ceremony were the firm’s Co-Managing Partners, Darani Vachanavuttivong and Tiziana Sucharitkul.
“We’re honored that our peers and clients recognize Tilleke & Gibbins’ commitment to the advancement of women in the legal profession,” said Darani. “More than 50 percent of our attorneys are women, along with three-quarters of our management personnel. This award reaffirms Tilleke & Gibbins’ position as the market leader in Thailand for gender diversity.”
The awards, sponsored by Euromoney Legal Media Group, mark the culmination of months of research throughout the Asia Pacific region. Law firms were judged on several factors, including their commitment to gender diversity, talent management, and female leadership.
In addition to the national award for Thailand, Tilleke & Gibbins was shortlisted for two Asia-wide awards. For her individual achievements, Darani was nominated as a leading practitioner in Asia in the “IP Litigation” category. And the firm was also nominated in the “Best Firm in Talent Management” category, recognizing our ability to attract and retain the highest level of female talent among our attorneys and administrative staff.
“Our female lawyers and support staff play a crucial role at Tilleke & Gibbins,” said Tiziana. “We are proud to attract the top talent in the legal market—both male and female—and to have these lawyers grow with our firm throughout their careers. This unwavering dedication to talent management puts us in a position to succeed and ensures that we provide the highest level of service to our clients.”
