    In the crowded Indian IP law market Inttl Advocare distinguishes itself as a “purveyor of high-quality work”, thanks in part to managing partner Hemant Singh whose 30 years at the bar have made him a “pre-eminent name” in the IP rights field. Singh is a former vice president of the Asian Patent Attorneys Association and has been lead counsel in numerous landmark cases in the Indian courts.
