Biography

Eiichiro Kimura is a consultant in Tilleke & Gibbins’ corporate and commercial group in Bangkok. Trained in Japan, Thailand, and the United States, Eiichiro is a key legal advisor and liaison for Japanese and other international clients. He has a broad, hands-on knowledge of commercial legal issues, with particular expertise in trade, compliance, and employment law. Eiichiro is also experienced in guiding companies through litigation—and in helping them avoid costly disputes by advising them on contract drafting and various other legal procedures.

Prior to joining Tilleke & Gibbins, Eiichiro was an investment coordinator at a law firm and then a manager at a major audit company. He then moved in-house, first to work for a credit card and financial services company, and then for the Thai subsidiary of a Japanese company producing agricultural machinery and construction equipment. Eiichiro holds LLM degrees from George Washington University and Chulalongkorn University, and is fluent in Japanese, Thai, and English.
