Follow us

Being one of the fastest growing economies in the world, India presents vast opportunities and challenges.

Our track record of advising clients on high profile and significant cross-border transactions, projects, disputes and debt and equity financings, has earned us a reputation for being a market-leading India practice. We are regularly the firm of choice for both international clients and Indian corporates in relation to their most important matters in India as well as overseas.

This gives us an excellent balance of perspective, allowing us also to understand the perspective of the Indian business and the cultural and practical challenges and to share clear insights as to the best actions to take and tactics to adopt to overcome the legal and practical hurdles in order to deliver matters to execution.

Our practice is based across our London, Singapore, Dubai and Hong Kong offices and operates seamlessly as one adaptable team that can be tailored as required.

Due to Indian regulation, we are precluded from having offices on the ground in India and practising Indian law. However we have strong relationships with top Indian law firms with whom we work to deliver a seamless service.

Our wider commitment to India includes work with law schools and local charities and sets us apart from other firms.
