Somboon Earterasarun, director of Tilleke & Gibbins’ Jakarta office, has been included in the inaugural edition of Asian Legal Business ’s “40 Under 40” list, which showcases 40 of the brightest young legal minds in Asia. Individuals who have been included in this list are lawyers under the age of 40 who are engaged in important deals, key disputes, and other high-quality work—earning accolades from their peers and clients in the process. Specifically, lawyers were chosen based on the quality and complexity of the work they have handled, their career achievements, as well as recommendations from their clients and superiors.
In addition, magazine’s editorial provides a brief synopsis of Somboon’s current role and work:
“After leading Tilleke’s Bangkok office’s overseas division, Somboon now heads the firm’s Jakarta office, having been in the role since September 2013. An IP practitioner, Somboon acted as counsel for Carabao to negotiate a worldwide settlement agreement with Red Bull’s U.S. and Austrian legal teams after more than four years over a dispute related to the alleged similarity between the parties’ marks. More recently, he opposed the Luck-tex trademark in Indonesia, which became the first case in which an opposition was won at the Trademark Office even though his client had not yet filed in Indonesia.”
