With the significance of Intellectual Property (IP) gaining more momentum, the role of law firms has also substantially moved beyond the generic chores of drafting, filing and prosecuting patent & trade mark applications and has become a more critical and commercial responsibility. But, on the flip side, a large number of innovations run aground due to lack of appropriate support, time, money and guidance. Most of the law firms may not find these thoughts as critical and may just focus on running their businesses, but for Anant Kataria & Tarun K Bansal these thoughts became a bee in their bonnet and emboldened them to incorporate Sagacious IP, one of today's global players in IP Services & Consulting domain.
