Nuttaphol brings 20 years’ experience to R&T Asia.
R&T Asia (Thailand), the Thai office of the Rajah & Tann network, has launched an intellectual property practice in Bangkok with the hire of former ZICO IP partner Nuttaphol Arammuang.

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.
