Photon Legal values your creativity and works closely with you to provide robust IP protection for your product. We study your target market to best advise you with all the potential “must-have” IP rights. Typically, a product involves “know-how”, “brand name”, “unique shape”, “color”, “packaging”, “label” and alike.
  • Patents

    One of the strongest IP protections your product must-have is Patent. The patent is a grant given by the law to safeguard your technological invention. The patent gives you a monopoly on the market to not only protect your “know-how” but also to refrain others from copying your “know-how”.

  • Design

    Everyone remembers visually appealing products. Thus, it has become vital for every business to project them different from the competition. One of the ways to do is by protecting the Design of your product. Design protection ensures that ornamental looks of your products are safeguarded in your target market. Photon Legal has a team of creative designers to guide you through the journey of design protection in order to stand out your product in the market.

  • Trademark

     In the age of internet and communication, we understand people watch out for the next big trend. Thus, it becomes very hard for a new product to make a dent in the market. However, a unique “non-dictionary” word for your product/company would always go a long way in identifying your product/company. Trademark helps you to create and protect your business identity for the years you are in business.  Trademark extends to color, logo, name, slogan, and even to the 3D layout of your product.

  • Copyright

    Copyright protects the artistic element of your product. The artistic element can be a label of your product, text written on your packaging, brochures, commercial materials, and alike. Copyright is an inherent IP right. However, registration is required to enforce your rights.


We have identified and embedded across our firm the core elements that make us unique. These values, designed to unite, differentiate and help drive priorities and strategic action, make up the Photon Legal Principles.


With right around 50,000 patents being recorded in India consistently, the commitment from

Indians in this pool are simply 30%. Despite what might be expected, the number of patents recorded in China are around 10 lacs for every year; and the difference here isn’t simply in the insignificant uniqueness of the numbers among India and China, the greater difference here is that the commitment by Chinese individuals in this pool is practically 80%. Unmistakably, something isn’t right; however what’s going on here?

IP Awareness? IP Benefits? Tormented Judicial framework and IP Offices? Law authorization? What’s going on here?

Maybe, every last bit of it. Having said that, there is certainly a titanic pretended by ‘absence of IP mindfulness’ and ‘absence of familiarity with IP advantages’ in Indians not securing their creations. Likewise, ordinarily, designers don’t understand that their development/creation is patent commendable, consequently enabling lacs of innovations to go in the open area without getting ensured. To address the issue, Photon Legal has vowed to make India mindful about their developments and the advantages of ensuring their advancements.

We, at Photon Legal, pledge to guarantee that no development goes unprotected and no innovator is left unrewarded for their creations in India. We conduct Innovation workshops for Govt. organizations, PSUs, research institutes, Universities, MSMEs, and large corporates.
