It is the dream of Manisha Singh, Co- Founder and Partner, and her love for innovation and passion to provide the protection to intellectual property, matching the international standard, which is standing tall in the form of LexOrbis, the legal firm.
The story of the foundation and the actual motivation behind setting up an Intellectual Property (IP) law firm is something like this…
With the opening of economy by introduction of new Industrial Policy in 1991, Indian markets were given to the International capital, technology and consumer products resulting in active roles of IP owners in India. So, LexOrbis wanted to clean up the market already infested with several look alike, counterfeits and pirated products.
India was also emerging as a key player in the global economy and became the signatory of many international agreements with the WTO (World Trade Organisation) affirming its commitment to liberalize trade such as TRIPs (Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights), TRIMs (Trade Related Investment Measures) and AOA (Agreement on Agriculture). LexOrbis wanted to bring that international perspective to the Indian Intellectual Property Right laws that were in the process of being integrated with the International IP system.
It is the special characteristics that the firm adhere to and the hard work, which make it win many accolades. Some of them are Indian Business Law Journal- Indian Law firm Award 2016, IAM Patent 1000- The World’s leading patent professionals 2016 and WTR 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals 2017.

Manisha is ranked amongst the top and leading lawyers in IP and dispute resolution segments of Indian legal practice by leading law journals and publications.

Narrating the story of the foundation of LexOrbis, Manisha says, “Initially we faced several challenges due to the complexities which were there in the administrative and legislative structure of Indian IP system.”
Manisha further added, “Since the legal services are prohibited from advertising in India, we struggled to develop our client base but now we have a diverse client base that includes many of the Fortune 500 companies, multinational corporations, leading Indian companies, public sector organizations, small and medium-sized enterprises and top technology start-ups.”
