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.

For some time, my business competitors had been flagrantly using my commercial photographs for their own & it was frustrating to say the least.

I was then lucky to come across Kiran’s contact and sought her advice.

Not only does she know exactly what she’s doing, she also went the extra mile and provided ideas on how I could deal with my problem long term.

It’s nice to find a true industry professional when you need one!

Javier Koh,

I have mainly dealt with Kiran on employment law matters in Asia The support that I receive from her and her colleagues is excellent. The advice is very good based on an understanding of my needs. I would happily recommend her firm to anyone.

Paul Cooper,

Ms.Kiran of Seiter IP Consultants has been doing a good job for our company since we engaged her services for our IP advice. She is professional, experienced and takes the time to explain complex legal matters to us in a very simple manner so that we are able to understand. She knows her stuff well is able to provide point advice. Her company’s rates are also competitive and value-for-money.
