Established in 1989, SS Rana & Co is a premier IP and corporate law firm with a pan-Indian presence. It is one of few IP firms registered as advocate on record with the Supreme Court of India, equipped to represent clients from the lower courts up to the apex court.

The firm’s long standing relationships with many Fortune 500 companies and esteemed international and national corporations speak volumes of its diligent and strategic legal services.

Having embraced the technological advancements in legal practices over the years, SS Rana & Co is one of few law firms in the country to be awarded the International Organisation for Standardisation 27001 certification.

The firm has a record of pro bono representation based on the belief that there is more to our professional mandate than advocacy for only the successful. Our commitment to providing a voice for the underprivileged is demonstrated by pro bono contributions and a range of cases on behalf of individuals who lack the means to secure basic legal representation.

Our workshops focus on interactions with students, teachers and young innovators. IP4kids received support from the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) through its publications distribution at the Innovation Festival 2016 organised by the National Science Centre at New Delhi. Partners and associates at our firm also participate at IP sensitisation seminars and conferences organised by:
- the Ministry of Small Scale Industries;
