Intellectual Property Protection in India

India is an important location for production and research, in particular for pharmaceutical products and software development. Intellectual property protection in India has been significantly simplified since India acceded to the PCT in 1998 and now conforms to global standards. Yet there are still some national particularities requiring particular attention, including the provisions of Section 3 (d) and Section 8 (1) and (2) of the Indian Patent Act.

Our India Department can provide you with specialist support in the planning and implementation of your IP strategies for protecting the value added of your products and ideas in India. We have been visiting India regularly over the years, in order to be able to guarantee our clients professional and efficient handling of their IP-related affairs in collaboration with our partners in respected Indian law firms. We work in close cooperation with partner firms and other service providers in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi/Gurgaon, Hyderabad and Bangalore.

We will be happy to answer any questions you may have relating to Indian patent law, design law or trade mark law. Please contact W. Sandmann.
