Litigation is not an end in itself, it is just a means to address a business problem

BananaIP's Intellectual Property Litigation Management Department

Statistically, more than 99 percent of IP disputes get resolved before they get to the Court. At BananaIP, we believe that all options to resolve a dispute or problem must be considered and tried before going for litigation. Even after going to the Court, amicably settling the case might be the best business option. Keeping communication doors open and reaching out can resolve most IP and business disputes more efficiently than a full trial.

BananaIP’s Litigation Management Department offers litigation strategy and management services with the core objective of resolving intellectual property disputes for business benefit. Whatever the nature of the dispute might be, our experienced and expert team of IP attorneys will devise a strategy to resolve the issue by way of communication, reaching out and discussions. If the dispute does not get resolved, we will develop a litigation strategy and plan to not only provide speedy relief, but will also provide options at various points to amicably settle the case. We personally represent before some Courts and IP Tribunals, and work with the best lawyers to achieve the planned result before other courts.

BananaIP’s IP litigation team has over the last 15 years helped in resolving hundreds of IP disputes, and has managed about 20 litigations. We have helped clients with managing a wide variety of IP matters such as patent, copyright, and trade mark infringement cases, privacy/publicity rights violations, IP license and contractual disputes, defamation cases, traditional knowledge misappropriation issues, brand conflicts, and so on. Our team is constituted by some of the leading IP attorneys in India, who combine their expertise in law, business and technology to effectively and efficiently resolve IP problems.
