About Us

Who we are:

Today’s world runs on ideas. Ideas are behind every single product or service that you use; right from your smart mobile phone to the soulful music that you love to listen to. Great ideas can be hinged on simple genius - or they can be quirky, fun, and creative! Unfortunately great ideas get copied all too often, and that is something that needs to be prevented.

If you have a unique brand that speaks your message to the world, you must secure the rights to it before someone else tags along on the popularity you have created. Your brand logo and taglines are unique to your product and services, and should not be allowed to be copied in any form.

At Puthran & Associates (P&A), we realise the value of your Eureka moment and your special brand. Protecting intellectual property is our job, and we work in tandem with attorneys and law firms across the world to secure your best interests. Since March 2004, we have been creating strategies to safeguard the intellectual property rights of individuals and businesses across the globe.

Our experience lies in dealing with patents, trademarks, industrial designs, G I and copyrights, and offering end-to-end advice and consultancy on IP related legal proceedings. Our clientele are from diverse backgrounds and are leading players in their respective domains, and our steady growth stands testimony to the implicit trust that they have in our services.
