A patent agent, a litigator or technical advisor should necessarily have an Intellectual Property-focussed approach in understanding and executing his responsibilities.

Given the track-record of high-profile patent litigation, IPR issues seem to primarily revolve around pharmaceuticals, engineering or automobile industries. In reality, intellectual property impacts industries and people across all verticals. Additionally, adequate importance needs to be paid to the proper management of rights in trademarks, copyright and design protection. Our multi-faceted team has won international acclaim for their expertise in IPR, and can advise a company through all aspects of protecting their rights.
