LexOrbis is one of the most recommended and highly rated firms focusing on IP law in India. Based in New Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai, the firm provides end-to-end services and practical solutions to all aspects of patent, design, trademark, copyright, competition, sports, media and entertainment, unfair competition, e-commerce and other related law. The firm has a diverse client base, including many of the Fortune 500 companies, multinational corporations, leading Indian companies, public sector organisations, research institutes, universities, small and medium-sized enterprises and technology start-ups. The firm offers full legal and technical expertise to a wide range of industries, including automotive, aerospace, biotechnology, biosimilars, computers, chemical, consumer products, defence equipment, electrical and electronics, information and communication technology, software and mobile apps, media and entertainment, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, seeds and agro-chemical products, food and beverages, fashion, sports and publishing.
While the firm provides a full range of IP services from each of its offices, the firm’s New Delhi office is organised around seven main practice groups: engineering, life sciences, patent filing/formalities, designs, trademarks, litigation and the recently established IP Appellate Board (IPAB) practice group, to handle appeals and cancellation actions. The engineering and life sciences groups have over 30 patent attorneys, who are experienced in searching and providing analytics, writing opinions, drafting new patent cases for filing in India, the United States and Europe, and prosecuting Indian patent applications. The prosecution teams manage large patent portfolios comprising thousands of records of multiple clients, including global portfolios of large Indian companies and government organisations.
Meeting the growing need to handle appeals arising from decisions of the Indian IP offices and specialised patent and trademark cancellation actions, the firm recently formed an IPAB practice group under the leadership of a former technical member (patents) of the IPAB. The firm has drawn several of its well-experienced IP litigators and patent and trademark attorneys from various groups to serve specialised needs on the board.
The firm’s IP litigation group has several well-credentialed and experienced trial and appellate court lawyers with vast industry experience, some with advanced degrees in engineering and science. The team is led by an advocate on record with the Supreme Court of India, who has over 28 years of litigation experience at trial courts and the high courts and has represented governments at the Supreme Court of India.
The firm’s litigation team has played a key role in strategising and executing some high-stakes IP litigation in India for multinational companies, leading and medium-sized Indian companies, and technology start-ups. The team has advised and represented leaders of Indian seed companies in one of the most discussed patent infringement suits relating to genetically modified cotton seeds in India. Some of the litigators in this team are well known for their expertise in running pan-India anti-counterfeiting and anti-piracy campaigns and organising investigations and criminal raids across all major cities in India and South Asia.
All professionals at the firm are driven by the approach of finding practical, realistic and commercially viable solutions suited to the needs of our clients. Operating from our three offices in New Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai, we are strategically positioned to offer a far-reaching service to both domestic and international companies. The firm’s qualified and reliable teams of professionals work in the best interests of clients and are known for their clear communication, responsiveness, quick turnaround and out-of-the-box thinking and solutions.
The firm continues to be involved in IP policy and administrative reform processes undertaken by the government of India. The firm organises and participates in several training programmes at IP offices, judicial academies and enforcement agencies. The firm and its attorneys are actively involved with many IP organisations, including the Intellectual Property Office, the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property, the Asian Patent Attorneys Association, the International Trademark Association, the Licensing Executives Society, the American Intellectual Property Law Association, the European Communities Trademark Association, MARQUES, the International Anti-counterfeiting Coalition and the Biotechnology Innovation Organisation. The prolific experience of our attorneys and their passion for intellectual property have also been expressed at various speaking engagements and in research articles on issues related to all forms of IP law in India.
