Managing Intellectual Property has released its annual patent rankings for 2020, compiled as part of the magazine’s IP Stars guide to the world’s top intellectual property law firms. The new rankings confirm Tilleke & Gibbins’ continued standing as an elite patent firm in Thailand and Vietnam, and a rising force in the region. Tilleke & Gibbins was also recently recognized as Managing IP’s Asia-Pacific Patent Firm of the Year at its Asia-Pacific Awards.

The firm’s 2020 patent rankings are as follows:

  • Thailand – Tier 1 patent (one of two Tier 1 firms)
  • Vietnam – Tier 1 patent (one of three Tier 1 firms)
  • Indonesia – Tier 2 patent prosecution (up from Tier 3 in 2019)

This marks the 18th consecutive year the firm has attained a Tier 1 patent ranking in Thailand, and the sixth straight year in Vietnam. In Cambodia, where Managing IP does not have separate patent rankings, Tilleke & Gibbins has been ranked as a “Recognized” firm (the only tier available) for intellectual property. Managing IP does not yet rank patent firms in Laos or Myanmar.
