On November 22, 2012, the Euromoney Legal Media Group will hold its second annual Asia Women in Business Law Awards at the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel in Hong Kong. Again this year, Tilleke & Gibbins stands amongst a leading group of law firms that will be recognized for their commitment to the advancement of women. The firms will be judged on a range of factors, predominately initiatives for gender diversity, innovation, mentoring, talent management, and female leadership within each firm.
Tilleke & Gibbins has been shortlisted for awards in the following four categories:
- IP Litigation – Darani Vachanavuttivong. For the second year in a row, Darani Vachanavuttivong, co-managing partner and managing director of the firm’s intellectual property team, has received a region-wide nomination as a leading practitioner in intellectual property litigation.
- Thailand Country Award. After previously being named “Best Firm in Thailand” at Euromoney’s 2011 ceremony, Tilleke & Gibbins is again nominated for an award in the Thailand national category.
- Best National Firm for Work-Life Balance. In recognition of a program allowing reduced work schedules for working mothers, Tilleke & Gibbins has been nominated among the top firms in Asia for work-life balance.
- Best National Firm for Women in Business Law. This prestigious nomination puts Tilleke & Gibbins in elite company—alongside other leading law firms from Australia, India, New Zealand, Singapore, and Vietnam—as being one of the very best places for women to practice law in Asia.
In addition to this recognition by Euromoney, Tilleke & Gibbins’ commitment to women’s career development was recently featured in a cover story in Asian Legal Business magazine.
