First Day formalities and First Impression
I was given a brief introduction by an associate over a phone call and was looking forward to work with them.
Case law research on the principle that once a party registers a mark they cannot claim it to be generic in nature.
Case law research on Anti Suit inunctions relating to IP.
Research on Misbranded and spurious drugs under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act and License aspects under the Rules.
Prepared a List of FAQ’s on designs after reading the Designs Act and Rules.
Drafted user letter for a particular trademark.
Research on whether the jurisdiction of the arbitration seat will prevail over the facilitation council under the MSMED Act 2006.
The firm is extremely good as they provide a lot to research to be carried out to the interns and they acknowledge the hard work of the interns. The associates are very friendly and they guide interns and help them out with their tasks. I learnt a lot about IPR which was a subject I had very little theoretical knowledge.
They made me realise that trademark is quite an interesting area. If a person is interested in a full-fledged IPR Internship then they should try interning in this firm.
I had no such experience. It is a very good firm to intern at.
This firm truly taught me to enjoy the work I do. It helped me understand that I need to explore new areas of interest in law because previously I was mainly restricted to corporate law.
