IPR Legal Services in India

A patent makes your invention your legal property. Patents operate for a limited period in a specific territory, and give you the right to prevent others from producing, using, selling, or importing your invention without permission. With an understanding that every creator and their innovation is unique, De Penning and De Penning recognises that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to securing clients’ asset(s). We offer extensive intellectual property protection services, including Patents, Trademarks, Designs and Copyright. We also provide IP-related services, including Domain Names, Geographical Indications, Market Investigations, Portfolio Management, Database Searches and Regulatory and Competition Compliance.
From the first application for a patent in India in 1856 made by George Alfred De Penning, we have served a growing number of clients for over 165 years. Last year, for instance, the firm filed over 7500 cases, including more than 1500 new instructions, to enable clients protect their assets.

We have filed and secured exclusive rights to thousands of inventions for entrepreneurs and creators across the globe. Our experience means we can advise on whether your invention is suitable for patent protection, and put the most robust strategy in place to ensure the longevity of your success.
