Boutique intellectual property (IP) firms Lall & Sethi and Singh & Singh have merged to form the nine-partner, 27-lawyer firm SIngh & Singh Lall & Sethi effective 1 April, reported Bar & Bench.

Lall & Sethi managing partner Chander Lall told B&B that “the new firm can now handle both IP litigation and prosecution. We have truly become a composite boutique powerhouse in intellectual property. We can now cover all areas of intellectual property with a litigation experience, which is unmatched”.

Singh & Singh was founded by Pratibha Singh and her husband Maninder Singh in 1997. Both are now senior counsel, with Maninder Singh having been appointed additional solicitor general last year. In 2012, as the sole proprietor of the firm had sued Singh & Associates in the Delhi high court for passing off her firm’s name.

This is the third reported law firm merger in 2015, after Dhruva Vox and V Law and DH Law.

Why are they naming the new firm so weird (Singh & Singh & Lall & Sethi)? Wouldn't it be better to have the new name as "Singh, Lall & Sethi" or any other permutations and combinations thereof?
