Below is our statement in response to the Bar Council of India's announcement to allow foreign lawyers and law firms to practise in India:
"This is a hugely exciting development for the Indian legal and business communities and we are now considering the best options for our clients and the firm.
We have been committed to the region for decades and are regularly the firm of choice for international and Indian clients on their most important matters in India and overseas. We enjoy longstanding relationships with India's top law firms.
Our wider commitment to India includes our work with law schools and local charities. We also offer high-performing university law students in India internship opportunities in our London office."
