Tilleke & Gibbins is a renowned one‐stop center for legal advice and assistance on all corporate needs, affording clients convenience and economy of costs. We specialize in the mechanics of starting and operating a business in Thailand, Vietnam, and across the Mekong region, including registration, licenses and permits, company secretarial services, tax matters, employment, immigration, regulatory affairs, and property. We have the depth and breadth within our firm to provide advice tailored to your unique business operations.

We support entrepreneurs throughout Southeast Asia, from multinational corporations to startup companies and everyone in between, including SMEs. Our firm has:

  • Secured an Alien Business License for the world’s leading online booking website, which was a first and landmark achievement in this industry. Despite the fact that the governing authorities normally reserve all tourism operations for Thai nationals, we succeeded in convincing these decision makers of the great value that this business would add to Thailand and its economy. We coordinated and secured the approval of each authority and, ultimately, obtained the Alien Business License for our client.

  • Represented the world’s leading car seat maker in critical negotiations with the Board of Investment (BOI) on potential revocation of all benefits and privileges, which could have led to damages of over USD 20,000,000. In addition to our overwhelming victory at the BOI, we successfully obtained several Alien Business Licenses, which will allow the clients’ subsidiaries in Thailand to provide service to affiliates in the region.

  • Represented a leading electronic toll collection system provider as its sole legal counsel since the commencement of its operations in Thailand in 2006. In this capacity, we have assisted our client in bidding for government contracts, obtaining BOI promotion, and all other compliance matters.

  • Assisted a leader in branded lifestyle apparel on all aspects of establishing a Regional Operating Headquarters (ROH) in Thailand, including legal assistance on leasing approximately 1,000 square meters of office space.

  • Assisted a subsidiary of a Korean manufacturing conglomerate in establishing a branch office in Thailand to operate a service business for a project of an international energy company.

  • Applied for and obtained an investment certificate for one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. This included researching complex licensing and capitalization issues to limit the company’s liability and advised on the proper amount of investment capital.

  • Assisted a successful Malaysian trading company in establishing a representative office in Thailand to source consumable and non-consumable products, verify the quality of the products, and report to its head office.

  • Helped a diversified steel products company select the appropriate Vietnamese business model  and adapt their documents for doing business in Vietnam.

  • Helped a multinational company establish a foreign direct investment company engaged in the import/export and distribution of mobile phones and computers.  The established company is one of the few foreign-owned companies permitted to do business in this sector in Vietnam.

  • Advised a leading pharmaceutical company that previously operated as a representative office in Vietnam on establishing a pharmaceutical import company.  We assisted the client with closing its representative office and establishing the wholly-owned foreign enterprise to import pharmaceutical products.

  • Provided in-depth advice to a global software solutions provider on doing business in Vietnam.

  • Advised an international technology company on operating a representative office in Vietnam, including advising on the scope of work of a representative office, employment matters, tax matters, and government filing requirements. We prepared Vietnamese and English versions of labor contracts.

  • Prepared the application dossier and all additional documentation required to establish a 100% foreign-owned company engaging in the distribution of industrial tools in Vietnam. We also assisted the client with leasing office space.
