    Deriving its name from its boutique focus on technology, media and telecommunications law, TMT Law Practice has a “world class” brand in the industry according to sources. The past year has seen TMT represent broadcasters, technology companies and online service providers in contentious issues, as well as serving clients in the pharma and aerospace fields.

    PEOPLE & PRACTICES

    Peers were quick to praise the work of managing partner Abhishek Malhotra, leader of the firm’s IP, competition and litigation functions. He has 13 years of experience as a practising advocate and is well-versed in the prosecution and defence of IP suits as well as the drafting and negotiation of transaction agreements.

    CLIENTS

    In the past the firm has advised the likes of Google, Cinepolis India, Hexaware Technologies, Tata Sky, Sony Entertainment Television, Piramal Healthcare and Orange. Last year saw it represent the Indian Broadcasting Foundation in petitions challenging the implementation of digitisation in India, and the Association of Radio Operators of India in a music licensing case against various recording companies.
