Our firm advises some of the world's best-known brands, including high-street retailers, household products companies, luxury brands, and food & beverage businesses.
Our lawyers are at the forefront of this rapidly changing market and are able to guide you through the constantly evolving challenges and opportunities facing this sector, such as the impact of technology and innovation, globalization, rapidly changing consumer purchasing patterns, and the importance of maintaining brand reputation.
Our multi-disciplinary team can provide you with strategic solutions through a full range of legal services, including:
For manufacturers and sellers of fashion, luxury, and retail products, intellectual property — including brands, trademarks, copyrights, and patents — is an essential element of a successful business model. In an era of increased global competition and consolidation, constantly shifting import/export and trade policies, and the growing threats of trade secret loss and counterfeit and grey market goods, companies must balance the tension between preserving iconic product qualities and customer demands for new and innovative offerings.
At Sim And San, we recognize that industry size provides no guarantee of business security. While the global value of the fashion, luxury, and retail sectors have remained steady, sales growth and profit margins have begun to stagnate. New technologies and digital innovation are key to supply-chain efficiency, lower procurement costs, and enhancement of sourcing opportunities, all of which support new entrants to the market and increase competitive pressure on established brands.
To help corporations, privately held companies, and individual designers protect and maximize their brands, we draw on our considerable experience in all areas of intellectual property law, including trademarks, copyrights, industrial designs, trade secrets, and patents. We offer the best of all worlds: the focused guidance found in a midsize IP firm; sophisticated solutions delivered cost-effectively; and the international perspective and global resources of a long-established, industry-connected legal services provider.
We partner with our clients to better understand their current needs and long-term strategies, from developing new products and brands to entering new markets or expanding existing market share. We understand the unique IP issues that arise at each step of the product development, manufacturing, and sales processes, and develop cross-border legal solutions and protections for creative assets and proprietary information.
The firm has a rich history, spanning more than two decades, of representing major print publishing houses, and in the past has, and continues to, advise them on litigations relating to IP claims, contract disputes, manuscript clearance, anti-piracy as well as policy issues etc. The firm has been involved in landmark cases involving well known publishing and print houses on different aspects of copyright issues, such as, “authors moral rights”, “fair dealing/fair use”, amongst others. The now well-known case of Malhotra Book Depot Vs. Syndicate of Univ. of Cambridge & Ors. is a landmark decision on the issue of “fair dealing/fair use” and originality in copyright law and is treated as a precedent across the country.

ability to “think ahead”
Sim And San are our trusted legal advisers. I have had the privilege of working with the firm for the last 4 years while setting up my personal ventures with some fairly complex requirements. Quite a few things stood out from the first day of interactions itself that made our experience very different from our earlier legal endeavours. Their competence level to handle complex issues, communication and responsiveness surpass our expectations. Although Sim And San attends to all our overall legal issues, they specialize in Commercial Dispute Resolution, Intellectual Property Law and Corporate-Commercial Transaction Advisory. Their knowledge base as far as global IPR aspects are concerned, is excellent. As an entrepreneur, having a firm like Sim And San represent our growing brands has been critical for the success of our company. They are a young and aspiring corporate law firm established in the Indian sub-continent with global business experience and knowledge.

We highly recommend Sim And San and the team they possess.
Attorneys at Sim And San are confident and professional commercial litigation and trial attorneys. They successfully managed and prosecuted our company’s trademark portfolio.

Sim And San have been our brand’s trusted legal advisors for the past 4 years.

I have always wished the best for the teams headed by Mr. Mohit Goel and Mr. Sidhant Goel. I recommend them to anyone looking for prompt, efficient and effective legal advice.
From the beginning of the year 2014, we have been working with Sim And San for the prosecution of our Patent litigations in India and for soliciting their advice on key contentious issues and even on our contentious matters before the US Patents & Trade Mark Appellate Board. The work they prosecute for us involves complex questions of patent law and recovery of damages. Their Patent team has ably demonstrated their competence to deal with complex contentious legal and technical issues concerning these matters. I can only say that it has been a pleasure working with a responsive and effective legal team in India.
