Chadha & Chadha is committed to providing high-quality work, being responsive and taking a client-centric and practical approach.

The firm traces its history back to 1967; it has evolved over more than five decades to become one of India’s most prominent IP firms.

The firm specialises in patent law in various industries and technologies, including automobile and auto components, mechanical and machinery, electronics and electrical, telecom and communications, software and information technology, biotech and life sciences, pharma and healthcare, medical devices, material sciences, metallurgy, food and beverages, and sports equipment.

Chadha & Chadha stands for the highest quality of work in all aspects of intellectual property, including trademarks, copyright, design, plant varieties, geographical indications, emerging IP rights, enforcement and anti-counterfeiting, licensing, customs actions and domain names.

Our strengths and qualities

Our success is attributed to a diverse and skilled team of patent professionals who bring expertise to the key technical areas. Most of our professionals have dual qualifications in technology and law. Our team includes qualified Indian patent agents, advocates registered with their respective State Bar Council and the former assistant controller of patents at the Indian Patent Office.

Our professionals’ academic qualifications include bachelor’s and master’s degrees and, in some cases, PhDs. Many of our team members have undertaken international training programmes such as the FICPI-SEAD (the southeast Asian drafting course of the International Federation of Intellectual Property Attorneys) and EURO-SEAD, its European equivalent, which gives them a very good understanding of current international practices.

Specialties

Much of the firm’s patent work involves cutting-edge technologies and complex legal issues, including in the areas of computer-related inventions, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, fintech, telecoms, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and medical devices.

The firm represents clients before various forums in India, including before the Indian Patent Office, the Intellectual Property Appellate Board and courts at all levels. The firm also provides advisory services on cross-border IP disputes.

Clients

The firm proudly represents clients among the Fortune 500, Fortune Global 2000, FTSE 100, FTSE 250 and Forbes Global 2000 lists, including a client listed in third position on Forbes’ World’s Most Valuable Brands (patents).

The range of clients varies from large companies, mid-sized corporations, academic institutions and research departments to spin-offs and start-ups.

Diversity and inclusion

Chadha & Chadha’s team is diverse, with a large proportion of women in the leadership. We promote professional management to ensure the best interests of clients and encourage initiatives from staff at all levels.

Diversity and inclusion are not one-day issues: they form an integral part of our organisational DNA. Our initiatives such as a gender-neutral sexual harassment policy, strong professional development opportunities, on-the-job leadership training and flexible work schedules are aimed at reaffirming our strong commitment to building an inclusive culture in the firm. As a result of continued efforts in the last decade, Chadha & Chadha has seen a 60% increased share of women on the leadership board.

It makes us even prouder that most of these women began their careers at the firm and rose through the ranks, benefitting from Chadha & Chadha’s structured mentorship programme and its commitment to supporting women in achieving maximum potential at work.
