We’ve recently been informed that seasoned IP litigator and founder of Singh & Singh, Ms. Prathiba Singh has been recognized as the foremost female IP lawyer by the Asia Women in Business Law Awards celebrated by the Euromoney Legal Media Group, which also publishes Managing IP. The entire list can be accessed over here.
For those of your familiar with Prathiba Singh, you must know that she has participated in some of the most high-value IP litigation in the country including pharmaceutical patent litigation, trademark litigation and copyright litigation.
Litigation in India, is a crazy profession – it can be highly competitive and extremely frustrating. More so if you are a woman in Delhi, especially since litigation continues to be a pre-dominantly male bastion. So, for Prathiba Singh, to climb up the hard way and be recognized as a leading IP lawyer in the Asian region is certainly a commendable achievement.
Knowing the ultra-competitive nature of litigation and litigators in Delhi, I’m expecting several barbs from our readers accusing us of 'advertising' for Prathiba Singh, 'paid news' and god knows what else. My advice to you – relax – we have quite the track record of reporting objectively on her important cases, defeats included and we will continue to do so.
