Tilleke & Gibbins is delighted to announce the promotion of Aaron Le Marquer and Suebsiri Taweepon to the firm’s partnership, effective January 2016.
As the leader of Tilleke & Gibbins’ regional insurance practice, Aaron advises insurers and reinsurers in complex coverage matters and has particular expertise in multijurisdictional reinsurance disputes. He also has significant experience advising on the defense and coverage of claims across all lines of business, including property, energy, construction, product liability, directors’ and officers’ liability, and casualty.
“Aaron has overseen tremendous growth in the Tilleke & Gibbins insurance practice over the past three years,” said Tiziana Sucharitkul, the firm’s Co-Managing Partner and Director of the Dispute Resolution Department. “With his background as an in-house counsel providing him with deep insight into the industry, Aaron is a real asset for insurers and reinsurers doing business in Thailand and across Southeast Asia.”
Suebsiri is an intellectual property lawyer whose practice focuses on litigation, licensing, and registration of IP rights. He advises multinational corporate clients across a range of industries, including technology, food and beverage, automotive, and fast-moving consumer goods.
“Clients and colleagues alike depend on Suebsiri for hands-on, practical advice on how to resolve their most difficult IP issues,” said Darani Vachanavuttivong, Co-Managing Partner and Managing Director of the Intellectual Property Department at Tilleke & Gibbins. “Whether he’s developing a strategy for complex patent litigation, working with government authorities on an anticounterfeiting raid, or simply raising public awareness about the importance of IP rights, Suebsiri is always willing to take a leadership role in IP protection and innovation.”
Aaron and Suebsiri are both based in the firm’s Bangkok office but serve clients across Southeast Asia.
