For the 13th consecutive year, our India practice has been acknowledged as one of the top international law firms for India-related work by the Indian Business Law Journal (IBLJ). The IBLJ released the results of its annual survey in August, which draws on an analysis of more than 600 law firms over a 12-month period.
The IBLJ's editorial team noted that "General counsel and law firms alike agree that Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) is an undisputed leader on the India circuit." The publication also recognised "The firm has maintained its stellar reputation and commitment to India through business, and social and charity initiatives under the leadership of Chris Parsons."
The most notable transactions over the past 12 months were highlighted, including representing Bharti Global and its consortium with the UK Government (through the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy), on their US$ 1 billion acquisition of OneWeb and Yinson Holdings on its acquisition of Rising Sun Energy, which owns solar power plants in Rajasthan.
Chris Parsons commented: “It's a great achievement and we are honoured to be recognised again this year. We are grateful to our clients for their continued support and entrusting us with their most complex cross-border work."
