“We are delighted to become a part of DNA because being part of this network provides a platform for our clients to access the top lawyers in the region who will facilitate their legal needs and strategic ambitions in SEA,” said Tiziana Sucharitkul, managing partner of Tilleke & Gibbins.

Cavinder Bull SC, CEO at Drew & Napier added: “We are excited to have Tilleke & Gibbins join the network. DNA was created to enable pillar firms to service their clients’ multijurisdictional needs. With DNA covering almost the whole of SEA, we now have the capability to provide clients with seamless and integrated legal services of the highest quality throughout the region.”
