IAM Patent 1000 – The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners 2023

Obhan & Associates is a highly reputed outfit with a knack for devising practical solutions based on the team’s strong technical expertise. The almost 50 IP experts deftly handle both contentious and non-contentious matters, often on behalf of major domestic and foreign clients. Managing partner Essenese Obhan is a strategically minded IP veteran with several high-stakes, high-profile licensing disputes under his belt, some of which pertained to SEPs. His mechanical engineering background gives him an edge when it comes to drafting, prosecuting and litigating complex technical inventions, and his sharp mind allows him to dispense excellent advice to major companies seeking to develop and manage their IP portfolios. Recently, he successfully defended MakeMyTrip against several patent trolls and secured an injunction for Huntsman Advanced Materials (Switzerland) against Jay Chemical Industries.
