Tiziana Sucharitkul, co-managing partner and director of the Tilleke & Gibbins’ dispute resolution group, was recently interviewed for an Asian Legal Business article on the many benefits legal networks offer to law firms. The article appeared in the March 2020 issue of the magazine, and Tiziana is quoted extensively regarding Tilleke & Gibbins’ longtime membership in Lex Mundi, the world’s leading network of independent law firms.
