Our seasoned advocates regularly appear and argue matters apart from engaging and briefing Senior Counsel (equivalent to Queens’ Counsel) on high stakes matters.

IPR litigation is different from other commercial litigation in several aspects. Sarvada’s litigation team handles both civil and criminal IP enforcement actions in all Courts as well as the Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB).
We have relations with experienced investigators for IPR related raids, market investigations and like actions who are also efficient in handling police actions for IPR issues.
There are over 40 labour laws in India. This field is regulated by the Labour Statutes, Constitution of India, individual agreements and judicial precedents.
Sarvada Legal has appeared in several District and High Courts across India in matters relating to unfair termination, fraud, embezzlement by employees etc.

The Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999 (FEMA) was a boon to a post-liberalisation India and it repealed Foreign Exchange Regulation Act, 1973.
Sarvada has an experienced team handling FEMA matters relating to inbound and outbound investments, external commercial borrowings, export regulations including export controls, import payments, deferred payments etc.
Arbitration has become a preferred choice of dispute resolution in India. While the Government of India has taken steps to streamline the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 as per the international standards, the Courts in India too have preferred a pro-arbitration jurisprudence over the last few years. With strict timelines now in place and the Government’s initiative to make India an international arbitration hub, arbitration is a favored choice amongst corporates.
Another important choice that clients have preferred in the recent times, especially with COVID-19 is the effective use of mediation to resolve disputes and effectively mitigate costs of litigating large complex disputes.
The Advocates at Sarvada Legal have rich experience in arbitration strategies & planning, including pre-dispute negotiations, expert witnesses & enforcement. We have represented clients in institutional arbitration as well as Ad-hoc arbitration including arbitration against government arising from complex contractual disputes in construction, engineering & techno-commercial contracts. We have also represented clients in court-related procedures including appointment of arbitrators and interim relief procedures.
