Our History

Tracing our roots…

Our firm and family have been intrinsically linked to the Kerala High Court for over 80 years – and we embrace this deep-rooted history in the Indian legal system.

We trace our roots back to Central Kerala in the 1940s, when the late C. K. Sivasankara Panicker began his practice in the Kottayam District Court. In 1949, he moved his practice to Cochin, where he practised in the Travancore-Cochin High Court, which later became the Kerala High Court.

In 1979, he founded Panicker & Panicker, which is today a highly-regarded law firm, taking on a wide range of clients and high-profile matters.

Our founder, the late C. K. Sivasankara Panicker, was regarded as one of the finest lawyers of the Kerala High Court, and served as the Advocate General for the State of Kerala. He also served as the President of the Kerala High Court Bar Association.

Other eminent practitioners included Justice K. S. P. Radhakrishnan, son of C. K. Sivasankara Panicker, who was later elevated as a Judge of the Supreme Court of India.

Our level of expertise and experience is reflected in Panicker & Panicker being mentioned in numerous reported judgements of the High Court of Kerala.

…yet keeping pace with the times

We don’t rest our laurels on the rich legacy and knowledge handed down to us; we encourage continuous learning to stay abreast with changing laws and policies.

We have also empowered the firm on the technological front and are expanding the scope of our services to suit client requirements.

Clients of today look to their lawyers as legal partners and consultants, whose experience and expertise can deliver successful outcomes – and that’s exactly what we strive to achieve.
