Indian Patent Attorney

I am a qualified Indian Patent Attorney (IPA) and a Trainee European Patent Attorney (EPA) with 16 years of practicing experience working with top law firms and serving global tech leaders in the wider field of electronics.

After completing my Electronics & Communication Engineering Degree from Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, I started my work with a leading global IP services company and have since worked with multiple top-ranked law firms in India including Amarchand & Mangaldas and Khaitan & Co. Subsequently, I also ran my independent practice for a few years before moving to Dublin and joining the team in PurdyLucey.

I have extensively worked on patent drafting and prosecution for individual inventors, corporates, research institutions, and law firms in the field of integrated circuits, artificial intelligence systems, user interfaces, power management systems, automobiles, communication networks, internet systems, circuit breakers, high voltage inverters, equalizers, mobile displays, switching cells, FM transceivers, and solar cells.

I specialise in prosecuting patent applications before the India Patent Office (IPO), including representing clients at Oral Proceedings before the IPO on numerous occasions. I have also extensively advised and worked on cases being filed across several countries including US, multiple jurisdictions in Europe and Asia.

While not at work, I love to cook and play board games with my family. I also like to read, travel and watch movies.
