Experience

  • Conducted several market surveys at shops correctly suspected of selling counterfeit products, including investigations at major markets in Yangon and Mandalay, on behalf of a major international brand owner. As a result of the survey, the client was able to take swift and effective action against the infringement of their mark in Myanmar.
  • Part of a team that secured a decisive victory against a local infringer on behalf of a top producer of welding electrodes in Thailand. The landmark case was held before the Supreme Court of Thailand, with a resounding success attributed to the novel defensive strategy of using multiple separate trademark registrations to collectively cover the entire package design.
  • Worked on an inquiry into the detention of sex workers in Myanmar in collaboration with an NGO, including travelling to Nay Pyi Taw to work with the Ministry of Social Welfare of Myanmar on gathering information.
