With a rich legacy of more than 37 years, Rahul Chaudhry & Partners is a leading full-service law firm. Having an experienced and proficient team of approximately 70 lawyers, including 10 partners and a support staff of around 115 personnel at two locations, Rahul Chaudhry & Partners is swiftly expanding to become one of the foremost legal advisory practices in India.

The firm has a dynamic business solution practice aimed at providing clients with comprehensive legal advisory services and solutions in multiple practice areas, across all industrial sectors. The firm was established in 1983 as Lall Lahiri Salhotra (LLS).

In July 2007 the management was taken over by Rahul Chaudhry, who is among the most pre-eminent names in IP law in India.

Mr Chaudhry acquired 100% ownership rights in LLS on 31 March 2013 and, as part of the said transition, the name of the firm was changed to Rahul Chaudhry & Partners on 1 July 2018. The team (its composition and structure — including the partners and support staff) is the same as that of LLS.

Rahul Chaudhry & Partners has a reputation for providing exceptional legal services and is renowned for its commitment to excellence. The firm offers detailed and individual advice for protecting its clients’ ideas, innovations, complex developments and know-how. The firm supports its clients in obtaining such protection by handling all facets of IP-related work, including creation, management and protection of large-scale IP portfolios, enforcement, transactions including licensing, assignments and acquisitions, monetisation, strategy and planning for long-term IP optimisation.

The firm’s comprehensive range of legal services is custom designed to meet clients’ needs and exceeds their expectations. The firm has a young team of fervent and erudite lawyers skilled and experienced in all fields of law. In addition to being proficient in tackling all kinds of complex legal problems, the team has extensive experience in navigating trademark, patent, copyright and design law in India and internationally, as well as a widespread network of associates, which enables them to protect the IP rights of Indian clients across the world. Further, the firm provides the entire range of IP services to international clients in Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and the Maldives.

Over the years the firm has developed a unique skillset, specialising in the prosecution, enforcement and litigation of IP rights in India, as well as several other jurisdictions, offering reliable legal counsel to both national and international clients. The firm has been responsible for IP portfolios of some of the most prominent names among Fortune 500 companies and has assisted a large number of clients before the courts, as well as in quasi and non-judicial forums. The firm’s commitment to providing legally and strategically sound advice to clients is what sets it apart.

Mr Chaudhry, the firm’s managing partner, has a comprehensive repertoire of skills and experience in the management and enforcement of IP rights; extensive experience in assessing strategic innovation and legal implications enables him to advise his clients (Indian and overseas) on a range of issues and transactions relating to IP prosecution; enforcement; litigation strategies; portfolio audits; due diligence for acquisitions/divestitures; developing strategies for acquiring, enforcing, maintaining and assigning intellectual property; international trademark registrations under the Madrid Protocol; design patent; copyright; unfair competition; investigations; negotiations vis-a-vis prior third-party rights; implementing global filing strategies; and corporate IP transactions agreements. Mr Chaudhry considers business sensitivities and goals, while crafting comprehensive IP protection and enforcement strategies, both short and long term, so that clients can secure and maximise the value of their critical IP assets. This has earned him and the firm immense trust of global industry giants in assisting them in protecting and furthering their business goals.
