Tilleke & Gibbins provides real world advice on antitrust and competition laws, including merger control, price-fixing, abuse of dominance, cooperation among competitors, antidumping, and countervailing duties (CVDs). We understand the realities of business development in Southeast Asia and can help you create effective and compliant action plans for market entry and expansion.

Our regional practice is growing due to increased trade in and the economic growth of the ASEAN community. We work with local and international businesses to facilitate sustainable growth in Southeast Asia and best practices for international trade. In our dynamic practice, we represent clients in such diverse fields as pharmaceuticals, textiles, financial services, film, technology, raw materials, and air transport.

The practice area is headed by Piyanuj (Lui) Ratprasatporn, a leading Thai attorney with over 20 years of experience advising clients on how to invest, grow, acquire, merge, and trade without running afoul of the myriad of competition and antitrust laws. She is a prominent speaker and writer on investing in Thailand.
