Intellectual property (IP) lawyer Dinesh Kumar Sharma has left LexOrbis and founded his own firm in a move he likens to a leap of faith, after gaining the requisite skills and experience.
“Having been in the industry for more than a decade, I believe that I have achieved the minimum experience and acquired the necessary skill sets to start my law firm,” said Sharma, who founded Adclivis Legal along with four other lawyers and a patent agent on 21 July.
“I believe that there is a need in the marketplace for a boutique law firm that aims to consistently deliver timely, high quality and reliable IP and other legal services and assistance tailored to its clients’ requirements. With all this in mind, I have taken a leap of faith and founded Adclivis Legal.”
The firm is based in Noida and will focus on IP litigation and advisory services for domestic and international clients. Sharma’s own focus has been on patent enforcement and litigation and he has worked on several patent cases.
Sharma joined LexOrbis in November 2016 from Corporate Law Group, where he had worked for more than seven years. In response to Sharma’s departure, Manisha Singh, the managing partner at LexOrbis said, “All the best to him for his endeavours.”
Sharma is admitted as an advocate on the Bar Council of Delhi roll and is a member of the Delhi High Court Bar Association. He is also a registered patent agent.
