Tahir Amin, LL.B., Dip. LP., is an attorney with more than 25 years of experience in intellectual property (IP) law. He practiced as a Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales with two of the leading IP firms in the United Kingdom, and served as in-house global IP counsel for multinational corporations. In 2004, Amin left private legal practice and moved to Bangalore, India, where he was instrumental to the passage of a health-friendly patent law. That process led him to eventually co-found I-MAK, with the purpose of re-shaping intellectual property laws to better serve the public interest. Amin’s pioneering work challenging patents established a new model for treatment access, one that restores balance to the system by upending the structural power dynamics that allow health and economic inequities to persist.
