About

Founded in 2004, the Firm’s clear and singular purpose is to provide reliable, practical and full-service advice across sectors. Our greatest strength is an in-depth understanding of legal, regulatory and commercial environments, in India and elsewhere.

We’re about honest conversations and greater collaboration between the partners. We are mandated to share knowledge, and are less proprietorial about our territory. What benefits one, must benefit all.
