Internship Experience @ Remfry & Sagar, Gurgaon: Good IP work

0 Shares

Name, College, Year of Study:

Niharika , NUSRL Ranchi, 5th Year

Name of Organisation, Location city:

Remfry & Sagar, Gurgaon.

Application Process with contact details:

I applied through the intern head, Mr Cyril Abrol. He is a very humble person and though you can expect a response shortly, you may have to be very consistent with the follow back mails despite rejection mails.

Duration of internship and timings:

August 3rd, 2018 to August 30th, 2018

Timings: 09:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Saturdays and Sundays are off.

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure:

On the first day, the intern head, Mr Cyril Abrol, welcomed us and walked us through the formalities and assigned us departments. I was assigned us the Trademarks Litigation department.

The firm has excellent infrastructure consisting of a spacious workspace, good IT infrastructure with access to Manupatra.

Best things:

Remfry & Sagar has humongous IP related work and has its head office at Millennium Plaza, Gurgaon.  They have a dedicated place of one intern per team, so I was the only intern in my team.

The best part was that you were given a cubicle with your team, so a person could get opportunities to interact with the maximum number of people.

During my stay at Remfry, I was also given an opportunity to observe Court proceedings of the largest Bench of 5 judges ever (in Indian IP litigation) to discuss an important question of law.

My major work involved drafting appeals with respect to trademark infringement and passing off cases, plaints, investigation reports, cease and desist notices, response to the same and correspondence to clients apart from assisting associates and partners to conferences with senior counsels.

The firm also provided me with quality work of numerous high profile companies and the opportunity to attend sessions at the High Court and other Courts and Tribunals.

At times, the associates might just not give you work or may be too busy in their own work to give you work. You have to be good at constantly asking for work to extract maximum benefits from your limited stay there.

Bad things:

No stipend. The systems given to interns were really slow at times causing inconvenience.

There is a very tiny pantry which just has a water boiler and you have to make your own coffee/tea and have it in your own utensils. Interns were also expected to bring their own stationery, which was rather surprising.

Accommodation:

I rented out a PG in Sushant Lok phase 1 which was very near to the office

My overall experience was very good and any IP enthusiast should intern at Remfry & Sagar at least once to get a feel of how Indian IP law firms function.
