Essenese Obhan is a managing partner at Obhan & Associates. He is an IP lawyer, patent agent and an engineer, and splits his time between patent prosecution and patent litigation. He has been at the forefront of several high-stakes IP licensing and litigation matters in India and landmark patent decisions.

He has represented both the Indian seed industry in their licensing dispute concerning genetically modified seeds as well as various Indian mobile manufacturers in their SEP discussions with SEP owners. He also got the first decision that restored a patent that was allowed to lapse on account of a patent agent error (this was for an Australian client) and the first order that revoked a patent for non-compliance with section 8 requirements.

He advises many companies, including some from the Fortune 500, and India’s leading businesses on developing and maintaining their patent portfolios and IP strategy and licensing.
