Our client’s include reputable Indian and international companies and we take pride in having represented our clients in various domestic as well as cross-border investments.

One of the reasons for the strength of our practice is that the partners of the Firm have: (a) witnessed the impact of and have helped client’s transition through the changes in the regulatory environment in India including relating to foreign investment; and (b) extensive experience in dealing with a broad spectrum of regulators and a variety of regulatory issues. Legal advice is provided with a view to arriving at an investment model that provides the client with the most beneficial tax structure and addresses regulatory requirements. In addition, the quasi-federal nature of the Indian legal system throws up numerous location specific issues that a client needs to navigate through and the Firm's lawyers have considerable experience in structuring transactions across the country.
