Jotwani Associates stands different from the rest market players. Here’s how:

  • Pioneering AI for Patent Applications

Jotwani Associates is the first law firm in India to leverage Artificial Intelligence to draft Patent Applications, Diagrams, Prior Art, and Background searches. This cutting-edge approach helped the firm draft one of the fastest and best patent applications that were approved by the client and filed at the Indian Patent Office.

  • Ethical and Transparent Services

Jotwani Associates’ commitment to providing legal expertise transparently and ethically makes it the preferred choice of many. An example of this is their collaboration with the Big 4.

  • Reliance on Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)

Jotwani Associates stands out for its strong focus on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), deeply ingrained in the firm’s daily operations. The firm goes beyond by conducting training sessions to educate clients in these critical areas of doing Business.

“Foreign companies trust us because of our ethical ways of dealing with the Government of India, both at the Central and State level,” mentions the Founder.  

  • Global Representation for Positive Impact on India

The firm’s Associates and Partners have represented clients worldwide, addressing the challenges they face in India. This well-thought practice has resulted in businesses framing positive opinions about India and seeing it as an attractive destination for doing business, which further leads to India’s economic growth. 


Besides offering best-in-class legal services to businesses, Jotwani Associates also contributes in several ways to the growth and development of the legal profession in India. 

  • Active Engagement with E-Court Committee

The firm’s partners provide several suggestions for improving the E-Courts within India. The integration between E-Courts (Headed by NIC) and Video Conferencing Platforms is being recommended by them. They are also proposing transparent methods of recording evidence sitting in lawyers’ offices.

To help underprivileged and marginalised communities, the firm follows a policy of taking 20 per cent of cases on a Pro Bono basis. It believes that everyone should have access to justice. 

The Client-Focused Vision 

“What matters the most in the legal industry?- Transparency and ethics. Right from our company’s inception, we have vowed to provide ethical, transparent, and cost-effective legal services to our clients. Rather than focusing on acquiring new clients, we focus on fostering long-term relationships with existing clients. A client is not merely there for billing but is a lifelong partner who shares all the difficult situations with an Attorney,” reiterates Mr Jotwani. 

Jotwani Associates understands the increasing relevance of training and technology. Therefore, it uses modern IT Collaborative technologies to facilitate seamless interaction among its Attorneys. The firm does not shy away from the newer legal challenges being posed due to Social Media, the use of Crypto Currencies, Blockchain, Cloud Computing and Artificial Intelligence, instead it addresses the technology challenges head-on and in the most practical ways.
