Baker & McKenzie has welcomed back one of Bangkok's most renowned intellectual property (IP) lawyers, Say Sujintaya, to its office in the capital.
Former associate Sujintaya has returned to Baker & McKenzie as a partner in the IP group following her departure from Tilleke & Gibbins. Sujintaya's movements have been marked by controversy. Her departure from Tilleke & Gibbins has spawned a complaint for defamation against her former firm and its principals concerning the reasons given by Tilleke & Gibbins to staff and clients for her decision. In an email to IP Asia magazine, Tilleke & Gibbins' senior partner David Lyman said: "On the advice of counsel we'll disclose all the facts and evidence only in court in defence of the criminal actions Say has initiated against the firm and two directors for alleged misappropriation and defamation." Sujintaya is director of the IP Association of Thailand. Dhiraphol Suwanprateep, head of the Bangkok office's IP group, said: "We're delighted to welcome Say to the firm. We believe that she'll be an invaluable addition to the office." He added: "Say comes to us with strong credentials and extensive experience, which we are sure will consolidate and enhance the service we offer to clients."
