A legal team is only as good as the people it employs.  With partners who have studied, qualified and worked in India while speaking various indigenous languages, our dedicated India team is rapidly establishing itself as a leading player. 

The team regularly advises Indian businesses and entrepreneurs on transactions and disputes relating to activities in India, Asia, Africa and Europe, focusing particularly on the UK and the People's Republic of China.

The cross-practice team offers expertise in all legal disciplines.  From advising on M&As, IPOs, litigation, arbitration and finance, to focusing on sectors including technology, outsourcing, oil and gas, and aviation, our partners support clients' every requirement.  A core strength is our IPO practice; we have advised on more Asian IPOs in London than any other firm in the past three years.

Understanding our clients' cultures, needs and aims helps us build lasting relationships.  With over twenty five per cent of our staff situated in Asia, our India team is perfectly placed to provide you with the commercially focused legal services you require.

We can help you with:

  • Arbitration and litigation
