The Licensing and Executives Society (LES) of Thailand is holding its 2020 annual conference on March 3 and 4, with three lawyers from Tilleke & Gibbins joining panels on the most pressing licensing-related issues facing investors and executives in Thailand. The two-day meeting is titled “The Coming Decade: Creating High Growth Products & Services—Upcoming Opportunities for Thai Innovation” and features wide-ranging insights on industry opportunities and challenges.
On the opening day, Alan Adcock, partner and deputy director of Tilleke & Gibbins’ intellectual property practice, is moderating a panel on cross-border trade and investment to discuss the current state of trade in the region in the face of health, economic, and other challenges. Suebsiri Taweepon, a partner at Tilleke & Gibbins, is leading the first panel on the second day, titled “Innovation in Licensing Enforcement.” In the afternoon, Siraprapha Claassen, a consultant at Tilleke & Gibbins who also works for the National Innovation Agency, is the moderator for a panel that digs into why many start-ups fail, and considers how attendees can overcome these challenges in their own endeavors.
The panels bring together a diverse range of executives and leading voices from government agencies, academia, and the private sector—both in Thailand and overseas, with some international panelists joining by teleconference.
