New partner Nuttaphol Arammuang will lead the practice
R&T Asia (Thailand) has launched an intellectual property practice which will serve clients across a comprehensive spectrum of contentious and non-contentious matters arising out of Thailand and the region. The practice will assist local and regional clients in the full suite of IP services from prosecution to commercialization and dispute resolution.
The new IP practice will be led by Nuttaphol Arammuang, who has over 20 years of experience in intellectual property matters.
Nuttaphol, was until recently the managing partner of a full-serviced law firm in Thailand. His experience covers a wide range of IP dispute matters including pharmaceutical patent litigation; patent infringement; design, trade mark and trade dress infringement; passing off; trade mark invalidation; copyright litigation relating to new media and technology; and obtaining preliminary injunction and Anton Piller orders.
He will also lead the team in advising clients on licensing and franchising; IP portfolio management; patent drafting and searching; freedom to operate report and analysis; trade secret management; and data protection issues.
“R&T Asia (Thailand) is a well-established and leading firm which has seen considerable growth in recent years as part of the Rajah & Tann Asia network,” said Nuttaphol. “I am honoured to be part of this team and look forward to building a leading practice to serve our Thai, Asian and global clients, supported by the many talents in the firm and network.”
The launch of the new IP practice in Thailand is in line with Rajah & Tann Asia’s strategy of enhancing its full-service capabilities to support clients and enable stronger regional collaboration with its nine other offices across the network.
“We are delighted to welcome a senior practitioner such as Khun Nuttaphol to augment our service offerings to our clients,” said Surasak Vajasit, managing partner of R&T Asia (Thailand). “His vast expertise in the practice area and experience in management will strengthen our team as we embark on the journey of enhancing our IP-related service offerings and building a full-service firm.”
