The office is on the 14th floor of Jolly Maker Chambers at Nariman Point in South Mumbai, and while no partner is based there full time, the plan would be to grow to up to 10 lawyers in the coming quarter, according to LexOrbis founder partner Manisha Singh.

Singh told us: “I will be supervising the functioning of Mumbai both by being present there for a few days in a month and rest of the days remotely.

“We have on-boarded 2 IP attorneys and 1 litigator and general commercial lawyers to begin with. Within next quarter we are looking forward to a team of over 8-10 attorneys operating from Mumbai.

“We already have quite significant IP work from the clients based out of Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara and Nagpur, etc. and Mumbai office will further extending our practice in that region.

“We are also working closely with the start up ecosystem in this region and LexOrbis Mumbai office will act as a one-stop shop for them including providing advisories on structuring their businesses and advising them on fund raising, regulatory requirements.”

LexOrbis had opened in Bangalore in 2015 by merging with local IP boutique Inolyst.
