Even the most serious of people laugh when they hear the name “BananaIP” for the first time. It is not a name that is normally associated with the legal profession, which views anything out of the ordinary with circumspection. But BananaIP’s team believes that they are not like any other group of patent attorneys with traditional and orthodox mindsets. “We have unique backgrounds, abilities and experiences when compared with other firms, and that sets us apart. We deal with creators every single day, and we take pride in the creative and distinctive name of our firm,” says Dr. Kalyan C. Kankanala, BananaIP’s Managing Partner.
BananaIP is one of the few IP firms in India with a strong and diverse science and technology specialization. The firm’s strength lies in its composition of senior partners, who bring together unique and distinctive backgrounds, ability and experience. It is the only firm in India with highly specialized departments to handle traditional and emerging technologies such as automotive, manufacturing, green energy, electric mobility, AI, machine learning, eCommerce, entertainment, biosciences, traditional knowledge and so on. The firm boasts of working with more than one thousand clients, which includes industry leaders in different fields.
The firm’s senior partners, Somashekar Ramakrishna, Nitin Nair, Vinita Radhakrishnan, Sanjeeth Hegde and Dr. Kalyan Kankanala are recognized as leaders in their respective areas of expertise. Technology is an integral part of their work, and they have over the years developed several proprietary technologies to augment the quality and quantity of their work. From mining of patentable inventions in a company to protection, management, enforcement, valuation and commercialization of patents, BananaIP’s services cover the entire value chain. This differentiates the firm from other firms in India. The firm’s attorneys specialize in converting disputes into business deals, which is another differentiating feature of the firm.
BananaIP is today considered as one of the top patent firms in the country, and opinions of its senior partners are consistently carried by the news media. The firm also hosts one of the world’s leading blogs on intellectual property, Intellepedia, and its partners contribute regularly to IP law and policy debates. Unlike most firms, whose work is limited to only professional services, BananaIP also focuses on the development of IP knowledge and culture in India, and integration of IP into business and specialized research, which significantly enhances the quality of its patent and other IP services. BananaIP’s attitude, approach and capabilities make it an inventive patent firm with a distinctive character.
