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 need to reflect on how privileged we are as a profession, on what we believe in as human beings. The fact is, someone else is doing the hard work.

Ajay Bahl, Co-Founder & Managing Partner

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.
