He was previously counsel at drinks brand Diageo, responsible for Asia, IP and innovation, and since graduating in 2008 from SLS Pune had also worked at IP and technology firms Saikrishna & Associates and K&S Partners.
He specialises in trademarks, copyrights, designs and geographical indications across the APAC region and also deals in commercial law issues.
According to IndusLaw, while in private practice he had been “actively involved in some precedent-setting judgments”, “including on intermediary liability, trademark law, geographical indications and interplay between copyright and design rights”:
A standout achievement for Bharadwaj has been the successfully leading and coordination of a team comprising law firms across 50 countries, on behalf of the Government of India, for the protection and enforcement of rights for one of India’s landmark and renowned Geographical Indications.
Indus co-founding partner Suneeth Katarki said: “We are confident that his vast experience in both contentious and non-contentious IP matters will help us increase our support to clients in this space. He also brings tremendous experience in technology IP and this will be an added boost to our TMT practice.”
Jaishankar added: “My experience of working with leading IP law firms and multinational companies, will help me contribute to the growth of Firm’s practices”
