Tilleke & Gibbins provides efficient, cost-effective, business-oriented representation on property transactions. We work with domestic and multinational companies to develop tailored solutions for regional investment and global growth.

Our integrated approach, combining issues of banking and finance, commercial transactions (especially, joint ventures), insurance, regulatory affairs, tax, and, when necessary, dispute resolution and litigation, has earned us the trust of sophisticated investors and developers throughout Southeast Asia. As seasoned practitioners, we specialize in solutions that synthesize relevant business issues and our clients’ goals.

Profitable real estate opportunities can be fleeting in the forward-moving economies of Southeast Asia. We help our clients in all industries, from manufacturing to hospitality, recognize and capitalize on these opportunities.

Among our recent matters, we have:

  • Advised a major Japanese construction company in a USD 140,000,000 mixed-use office, condominium and serviced apartment project in Hanoi, including all licensing matters, land title issues, zoning variances, land subdivision, joint venture negotiations, corporate governance, and property management regulations.

  • Advised a key client on its various property joint venture projects with a major property group, including financing agreements, project joint venture agreements, and legal and tax structuring of specific condominium projects.

  • Represented one of the world’s most recognizable fashion and luxury goods retailers in several commercial real estate disputes in Thailand arising from the disputed termination of a 30-year franchisee relationship. This representation includes negotiation and settlement of lease hold and commercial franchisee contracts with both the outgoing franchisee and the incoming franchisee partner, one of Southeast Asia’s largest and most successful commercial retailers.

  • Helped a major U.S. hospitality chain to structure, draft, and negotiate management contracts and conduct due diligence for six hotel, resort, and condominium projects in compliance with Vietnamese law, including  land title, zoning issues, complex brand licensing, and various taxation issues.

  • Acted as counsel to the developer of various condominium projects in Pattaya. Our involvement covered all aspects of the condominium project, including legal structuring of investor groups, financing, land acquisition, and contracts.

  • Represented a client as a joint defendant in a civil lawsuit filed by the owner of adjacent land. The land owner petitioned the court to register a right-of-way across our client’s land to a public road. The trial court rendered judgment in favor of our client and dismissed the land owner’s complaint.

  • Advised on a mixed development of an entire island, including land acquisition, development and construction permits, joint venture agreements, financing, customer and supplier contracts, and the legal and tax structure.

  • Assisted an international investor with all legal aspects of a land deal, including corporate structure, contract negotiation, and transfer of property. The investor secured ownership of over 20 individual plots of prime beachfront property, which allowed for the eventual establishment of a high-end resort project valued at over THB 1,500,000,000.

  • Restructured the complete set of home loan documents for a global financial institution. The documentation set includes the facility agreement, mortgage agreement, and tripartite agreements between the bank, borrowers, and real estate developers.
