Intellectual Property and Art Law

With constant digitisation and innovation, and emergence of new forms and varieties of art, the role of intellectual property protection is increasingly becoming crucial. For decades, Indian IP legal infrastructure and protection was quite inadequate, displaying a lack of enforcement and up-to-date laws to reflect modern IP requirements. However, in recent years, particularly following amendments to the Copyright Act and Patent Act, the Indian Government has taken on initiatives to improve and modernise legislative and executive capabilities with regard to Intellectual Property.

We have established a significant presence in the IP Space having worked on several technical and nuances aspects of trademark, copyright and other Intellectual Property Laws. Having worked with all manner of corporates as well as private individuals seeking IP protection, we have years of experience in handling a broad spectrum of IPs across various industries and representation before courts and tribunals.
