World Trademark Review has released the 2020 edition of WTR 1000, its guide to the leading trademark lawyers around the world, and the guide once again confirms Tilleke & Gibbins’ position as the top firm for intellectual property in the Southeast Asian region. In this year’s table, the firm’s offices in Thailand and Vietnam have retained their top-tier Gold Band rankings, while the Indonesia office achieved a Silver Band ranking for Prosecution and Strategy and a Recommended Band ranking for Enforcement and Litigation. This also marked the first year that WTR 1000 included rankings for practices in Myanmar, where the Tilleke & Gibbins office in Yangon was listed in the Recommended Band—the top tier currently available in the jurisdiction. WTR 1000 does not currently rank legal practitioners in Cambodia and Laos, the other two jurisdictions in with Tilleke & Gibbins has offices.
The rankings in the WTR 1000 research directory are based on in-depth qualitative research to identify key firms and individuals who are leading the way in their trademark-related legal practice. Depth of expertise, positioning in the market, level of activity, and peer and client feedback are all all taken into account in determining the rankings.
