Name of the organisation. City

Solomon & Roy Intellectual Property Services, Mumbai. See the website here.

How big was the office? Team strength?

Well, the office was not very big but had sufficient space to accommodate all. There were around 10-12 people working in the firm.

Application procedure. Internship contact details

I sent my CV via email given on their website & got a response within a day.

Duration in weeks. No. of days/week. Timings

4 weeks / 6 days a week / 10 am to 8:30 pm

Accommodation: how, where, how was it?

I stay in Mumbai itself so it was not an issue.

First impression. First day, formalities etc.

They take 2 interns at a time.

The first day we were introduced to the managing partner Advocate Mahua Roy who had a small introductory session with us & spoke to us regarding our expectations from the internship & explained to us her expectations from us.

She was very polite and made us feel comfortable.

Main tasks (in detail)

1. Research work regarding the various IPR Cases

2. Involvement in the entire process of drafting and planning the IPR applications

3. When free we were encouraged to read the IPR Acts.

Work environment, people

The work atmosphere is relaxed but disciplined. The associates are extremely friendly and Mahua Madam too is very polite with each one of the team (including interns)

Best things?

1. Relaxed Atmosphere

2.Ffriendly Associates

3. Tea twice a day

4. You are involved in all processes and allowed to learn fully.

Bad things?

The atmosphere gets a bit too relaxed when Mahua Madam is not around…. well that’s not exactly bad but it’s the only point I could think of.

What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues

Well as I said, the associates are extremely friendly & plus I had a lovely co-intern. So we would all chill during our lunch and snacks. we would order from the nearby stalls or sometimes even from Subway.

Stipend/ month

Rs 7500/Month

Anything else you’d like to tell

Excellent firm with great potential for an intern to learn.

Biggest lessons

I wish I had put a little more efforts to learn.
