I am Managing Partner of Seiter IP Consultants LLP, an IP boutique firm, providing trademark and other Intellectual Property services in Singapore and throughout Southeast Asia. Intellectual Property (IP) has always been a passion of mine and I have been practising IP law for years, particularly trademark advice and registration. IP is an area of law that I find it very interesting because it deals with innovation and creativity. I am always available to discuss IP issues and concerns with my clients, collaborating with them to develop customised out-of-the-box solutions where required. I also help devise customised IP Strategies for my small businesses who cannot afford to have their very own IP lawyer within the company.

With over 15 years of experience in the IP field, I have advised international and Singapore clients, especially SMEs and start-ups, on a wide range of issues related to trademarks, designs, copyright and domain names in industries such as apparel and accessories, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, toys, sporting goods, wines and spirits, agricultural and dairy products, foods and beverages, electronic and computers, industrial equipment and machinery and personal care, health care, medical devices and services.

My aim is to help as many clients achieve their business goals by leveraging on their intellectual property rights. Over the years, I have worked closely with small companies, start-ups, entrepreneurs and large MNCs, handling close to 1000 matters globally and have a very good network of local agents with whom I have a mutually beneficial fee arrangement so that we do not double charge our clients.

Being in a smaller sized firm, I understand the budgetary constraints that some businesses may have and for this reason, my firm offers trademark and IP services at fixed fees. I also offer free consultation and preliminary advice on IP matters on a courtesy basis. Where my firm differs is that we get to know each of our clients on a deeper level by investing time in learning more about the company, its aspirations, what they want to get out of their IP, and then discuss an appropriate strategy to achieve those goals. Transparency, honesty and integrity are the pillars of our work ethic. As I have structured our business differently, I hope that you will give us the opportunity to show you how we work.

Seiter IP Consultants LLP is supported by our affiliate law firm Dharsan Seiter Law Corporation whose core practice area is also IP law, focused on Singapore matters such as Patent prosecution, Trademark prosecution, Design prosecution, oppositions, cancellation actions, invalidation actions, cease-and-desist letters, trademark litigation, patent litigation, industrial design litigation and copyright litigation before the Singapore Courts. I invite you to visit my firms’ websites at and for more information.

I had some issue with others claiming copyright on my video which I did not feel was appropriate. Kiran was very prompt in responding to my query and after explaining my situation, she provided me with good advice on the best course of action to take. I feel that she is very professional and helpful, and gave advice based on my best interests even though my issue may seem minor.

Ken Lim,

We were literally at our wits end when we came across the Singapore Legal Advice website and Ms Kiran’s profile. She was such a positive, supportive and most importantly, a very dedicated Legal professional. She took the time to really understand the concerns we were dealing with and gave us her most honest and detailed explanations and advices. We felt like there was a burden lifted off our shoulders each time we corresponded with her. We appreciate the services she rendered and how empathetic she was towards our issues. Being a Lawyer in such a niche topic, she still delivered her advice in the most simplest of terms. Singapore could do with more lawyers like her. Thank you Ms Kiran, we will definitely be staying in touch!


Mdm Lawyer Kiran Dharsan Seiter was so kind to me, listening to my issue about trademark infringement and giving me her expert opinion about what I should do. Even though she is the best IP lawyer in Singapore, and must be very busy, but she still took the time to talk to an average person like me and understand my situation. I am very grateful for her kindness.


Ms Kiranjit is very patient in hearing my situation and answers to all the questions that I have. She provides a lot of great insights and always protecting client’s interests at heart. She went through all the documents and attend to the call within a day. I’m amazed by her promptness. It’s great to have Ms Kiranjit as a layer to advice on legal matters. Thank you.
