Represents a cross-section of Indian industry in the IP, and particularly in the patent sphere. A measure of our reputation and what we have achieved in patent litigation/contentious proceedings over just the past ten years is the fact that clients have started entrusting us with other non-Patent litigation work. We are a high-energy, high-intensity and high-dedication demanding practice. The candidates we seek need to be razor sharp in Court, willing to read, learn, absorb, and share knowledge. The candidate must be hungry – for work, for learning, and to make a name.




EXPERIENCE: Preferably 1 year + post qualification, preferably in IP & commercial litigation.

Candidates with < 1 year experience will certainly be considered after bios of those with >1 PQE are reviewed.


A science degree is not mandatory. If present, then a life science or chemistry degree would be useful. If none of the categories fit, it does not matter. We will teach you the science and the law necessary for a fruitful litigation career in IP.


WORK AREAS: Largely in IP – patents, trademarks, designs and some copyright related work.


JURISDICTIONS: Litigation pan-India. Advisory and participatory work in relation to non-India patent litigation.


REMUNERATION: Commensurate with profession-standards. Better than most mid-sized firms. Not as good as some mid-sized or large firms. If confirmed, then the annual raise is a function of your overall performance – in short, it is up to you.


If you want to know the actual base rates, then please post your current salary/retainer with a copy of the last pay slip in a comment below. Otherwise, don’t ask till you are selected for the second round in the interview process.



09.00 AM to 07.30 PM Monday to Thursday.

09.00 AM to 05.30 PM Friday

10.00 AM to 07.30 PM Saturday.



As in earlier years – 21 days of earned leave and 10 days available for casual + sick leave. That apart, we are closed on all Sundays, and on 8 main holidays in a year.



Work post-7.30 PM or on a holiday is required only when [this will be work from home]:

  1.     You have not been able to finish a task in a given deadline; and/or
  2.     There is an emergency/urgency based need.


The second is relatively rare. The former is in your hands – spend the time in the office or in Court finishing the work instead of looking at menu cards of nearby restaurants.
