Arbitration & alternative dispute resolution; intellectual property; litigation
Anuradha Salhotra, founding partner at Rahul Chaudhry & Partners (previously Lall Lahiri & Salhotra), is an IP litigator and handles the contentious practice at the firm. Anuradha started her practice soon after enrolling at the bar and joined hands with Amar Raj Lall and Monisha Lahiri, two of the most well-known and respected IP practitioners in the country, to establish the niche IP specialist partnership firm, Lall Lahiri & Salhotra, in 1983.
Today, Anuradha is an authority on intellectual property law and has been instrumental in the firm’s extensive IP practice. Her expertise is not restricted to any particular aspect of IP but covers the entire gamut of activities that go into the development and management of intellectual property. The various tasks that Anuradha handles at the firm include heading the litigation team and directing all litigation matters, development of strategy and counselling of clients, attending conferences and meetings, appearing on behalf of clients before judicial and quasi-judicial authorities, consultancy with regard to optimal management and development of IP portfolios.
Anuradha’s enviable track record for delivering successful results for her clients is the outcome not only of her legal acumen and deep understanding of IP in India, but also of long hours spent formulating strategies for protection. In her capacity as founding partner of the firm, she has devoted herself to the complex contentious and dispute resolution practice of the firm, advising and representing some of the biggest names across the industry spectrum, in litigation, arbitration and mediation, as well as negotiating IP transactions.
She is regarded as one of the premier IP law experts whose advice is sought for management of some of the most well-known and most valuable trademarks, management of patent proceedings and countering attacks on IP. She has, over the past few years, emerged as one of the most well-known and respected IP law litigators in the country, having appeared in almost all jurisdictions representing IP owners from the mega corporations to private individuals.
