Tilleke & Gibbins Close Phuket Office
After almost seven years in the Phuket market, the well known island law firm with a focus on property, Tilleke & Gibbins has closed its Phuket office as of the end of February.
Speaking to Jerrold Kippen of DK Tax and Law, he has said "with notice and with the consent of the T&G Phuket clients, the law firm of Duensing Kippen) will be taking over professional responsibility for virtually all of T&G Phuket's client matters and files. They will be doing so from their Phuket office a short distance from T&G's former office. They are also taking over what was T&G's Phuket Plaza Del Mar, near the entrance to Laguna, for purposes of meeting with clients."
John Howard, former Joint-Venture Partner and Managing Director of T&G's Phuket operations, has joined Duensing Kippen in an "Of Counsel" capacity. It is expected that the new structure will create continuity for existing clients.
