Trilegal SA Mohit Jolly starts up disputes-corp-IP firm


Trilegal Delhi senior associate Mohit Jolly left the firm on 15 March to set up RDJ & Associates in Delhi, focussing on disputes, corporate-commercial, secretarial and intellectual property (IPR) work.

A rebranded version of his late father RD Jolly’s practice – RD Jolly & Associates – RDJ & Associates started functioning from Panchsheel Park in South Delhi with a team of four including Jolly and his wife Shikha Jolly, last week.

Jolly graduated from Amity Delhi in 2005, joined senior advocate AS Chandhiok’s practice until 2007, worked at JSA Delhi until 2010, and ran an independent counsel practice until 2012 handling real estate and development contract related matters, dealing with the Right to Education Act, service matters involving government departments, civil litigation and IPR disputes.

He joined Trilegal in July 2012 and worked on corporate commercial banking, FCCB disputes, some service and tax matters, and mainly focussed on IPR a practice in which the firm was trying to build at the time.

“It has been for a while that I wanted to do this,” he commented. “Having worked at Trilegal and JSA, I have gained extensive corporate, regulatory and IPR experience and I have also dealt with primarily an international clientele. The idea was not only to do the work but also to understand how domestic and international client interacts with you.”

At RDJ he will focus on corporate commercial disputes and IPR, his wife who was independently handling matrimonial matters in Delhi courts since last year will focus on arbitration and matrimonial disputes, and two of counsel will take care of secretarial work.

“We are focusing on corporate, IPR and conveyancing in addition to our disputes practice. So it is more on the corporate side as well. Primarily we are a disputes team and now we have got people who have extensive corporate experience. I am also shifting my focus also to concentrate more on corporate work as well,” he said.

The firm’s list of clients currently include real estate companies, IT companies, and Jolly’s old corporate clients for whom he was doing tax and litigation during counsel practice days. Jolly said that his immediate strategy would be to “provide quality service to clients at a cheaper price, since in the current market scenario corporates are looking at commercially viable options which are less heavy on the pocket”.

Trilegal Delhi co-founding partner Anand Prasad said that he wished Jolly well.
