Deepak Chopra

Senior Partner

Practice Area

Tax

I am passionate about tax and litigation as subjects and the complexities and challenges that surround them. Tax cost is a fundamental for any business and maximum efforts are directed towards keeping these costs at a minimal. Being a litigator, I am driven by the energy of the courtroom and the challenge that goes with it. What intrigues me is even after so many years in the profession every transaction or case that I come across has something unique, which is stimulating and challenging at the same time.
