Driving growth across Southeast Asia for leading players in the global automotive industry.
Tilleke & Gibbins acts for clients across the automotive value chain, from upstream automotive and automotive parts manufacturers to downstream automotive distribution and sales dealerships, offering a one-stop service for a full range of legal matters in Southeast Asia.
At the start, our multidisciplinary team helps automotive industry players structure and implement market entry models, including assisting with M&A transactions and joint ventures, obtaining licenses and investment incentives, and protecting valuable designs, patents, and trademarks. For manufacturers, we also regularly assist with land acquisition and factory construction in industrial estates and special economic zones. Once companies are set up and operating, we continue to work closely with our clients to maintain regulatory compliance across the region, advising on antitrust and trade competition, employment, import and export, tax, and other general corporate matters. And when complications occur, we also represent automotive clients in dispute resolution, including commercial and IP litigation, product liability claims, and class actions.
Our full-service legal expertise enables clients to capitalize on opportunities for success in the region, driving growth across Southeast Asia for leading players in the global automotive industry.
