Lakshmikumaran poaches two partners from IP giant Remfry & Sagar

Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan has hired two partners from intellectual property (IP) firm Remfry & Sagar, including its head of patents, to head up its IP practice in Delhi.

Remfry partner and head of patents Sanjay Kumar joins Lakshmikumaran as a partner and head of the IP rights division at the firm.

Remfry partner Arpita Sawhney joins Lakshmikumaran as a senior consultant to head one of the IP litigation teams in Delhi.

Kumar and Sawhney had worked as a team at Remfry, with Kumar having been at the IP specialist firm since 1997 and Sawhney having around 10 years of work experience.

Both had been partners at Remfry since 2005, having been responsible for litigations for clients such as Novartis, Bayer, Eli Lily, Enercon GmbH and Honda, according to Lakshmikumaran.

Lakshmikumaran said that its IP practice now consisted of over 50 IP attorneys and technical professionals, handling IP litigations and patent and trademark filings.

Kumar and Sawhney were unavailable for comment at the time of going to press, while Remfry & Sagar did not respond to calls and emails for comment.

Remfry & Sagar had a revenue of Rs 121 crore in 2009-10 and employed 220 staff, billing between $90 and $1,000 per hour for 2,500 regular clients, according to information supplied for a Businessworld magazine survey by the firm.
