Chinachart Vatanasuchart - Tilleke & Gibbins

Within: Transport

Tilleke & Gibbins has a varied transport practice that spans rail, road, shipping, logistics and aviation. The aviation department is led by consultant John Frangos, who acts in complex disputes in Thailand and Vietnam. In recent work, Frangos and Thawat Damsa-ard acted for a US-based aircraft leasing company in relation to an administrative court case involving the repossession of two aircraft from a Thai airline; this matter tested the ability of the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) to deregister aircraft without a court order. Further, Frangos and Damsa-ard are advising an airline on a high-profile collision at an airport, which caused extensive damage to the client’s aircraft. In the non-contentious space, corporate and M&A partner Charunun Sathitsuksomboon advised a Singaporean client on the acquisition of a Thai logistics company, which required advice on transport licensing and shipping requirements. Also recommended is transport and logistics expert Chinachart Vatanasuchart, who is highly experienced in international trade and customs, insurance and employment law.
