Little did William Alfred Goone Tilleke know when he stepped ashore in Siam in 1890 that he would create a law firm that would endure, proudly bearing his name, for over 125 years. He could not have imagined that his law firm and its people would play a role in shaping the legal system of Thailand or predicted the world events that would in turn shape the law firm.

The history of Tilleke & Gibbins is one we share with our clients, our community, and the Kingdom of Thailand. Learn about our history by browsing through the historical timeline below. The firm’s history has also been recorded in Wise Counsel, a 236-page illustrated book written by John Hoskin.
