India's IP landscape boasts a thriving scene of boutique law firms offering specialized expertise at potentially lower costs compared to their larger counterparts. These firms often focus on specific areas like patents, trademarks, or copyrights, attracting clients with deep industry knowledge and personalized attention. While lacking the global reach of larger firms, many boutiques excel in their niche, providing agile and strategic counsel for startups, SMEs, and even MNCs seeking targeted IP solutions.
