It is estimated that 99% of businesses using software use open source software in one form or another. Owing to the success of open source software, the concept has transcended boundaries and is today integrated into many other fields. While use of open source software provides several advantages from speed, to a large community, it comes with a bag of conditions, restrictions and sometimes problems. Dealing with open source license compliance, and strategizing risk mitigation require a strong background in both law and software.

Since 2004, our team of technology savvy IP attorneys has been helping large multinational corporations analyze open source licenses, devise compliance models and risk mitigation strategies. Converging their graduate education in IP Law and Software, our team has advised companies on some of the cutting edge projects involving Android, Linux and so on. Realizing the increasing role of patent risks in integration of open source software with proprietary software well ahead of time, we have devised policies, which are protecting our clients’ interests in several ways. Our experience in open source consulting, coupled with our expertise in law and technology, makes our team one of its kind in the country.
