We are pleased to announce some key developments at ZICO Law Thailand.

After a successful tenure as Executive Chairman of ZICO Law Thailand, Chulapong Yukate will be retiring effective 1 January 2019. We thank Chulapong for his valuable service and the contributions he has made in growing ZICO Law Thailand to a robust team who consistently provide uncompromising client service. Chulapong will always be part of the ZICO Law family and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

ZICO Law Thailand’s leadership team will now be led by Nuttaphol Arammuang, who has been promoted to Managing Partner. Nuttaphol is one of Thailand’s leading Intellectual Property lawyers, and a partner at ZICO IP since 2015. He has over 15 years of experience in Intellectual Property matters, and advises clients on contentious and non-contentious IP matters in both Thailand and overseas. His excellence in service to clients has garnered him top accolades, including the Client’s Choice Awards 2019 in Intellectual Property, a spot in the A-list of Asia Business Law Journal’s Top 100 Lawyers, and recognition as a Leading Trademark Expert by the World Trademark Review 1000 in 2018. We are confident Nuttaphol will be able to take ZICO Law in Thailand to new heights, expanding the firm’s capabilities, and enhancing our service to provide better value to clients.

Assisting Nuttaphol is Threenuch Bunruangthaworn and Titirat Wattanachewanopakorn, who have been made Executive Partners. Threenuch is a veteran of ZICO Law, having joined the firm in 2007 and working with some of the largest multinational Thai and foreign clients. She regularly advises clients in setting up business operations and advising on relevant laws concerning foreign investment in Thailand. Titirat is a seasoned IP practitioner with over 15 years of experience advising clients on both domestic and international levels. He is well known in the IP field for his practical and commercial approach in advising clients, and innovative strategies in regards to IP protection.

“We believe the combination of Nuttaphol, Threenuch, and Titirat will usher in a new era for ZICO Law Thailand. As part of the ZICO Law network with 18 offices across 10 ASEAN member countries, the new leadership team will help us maintain our position as the go-to premier law network in ASEAN,” Hanim Hamzah, Regional Managing Partner, ZICO Law.
