Delivering holistic strategies through a multi–disciplinary approach.


We understand that your business demands a multi–disciplinary approach, and a cross–pollination of ideas across diverse practice groups is necessary to devising cutting–edge tax strategies. The specialised Tax group therefore works very closely with our corporate transaction and advisory teams, rather than a silo-based, isolated application of tax laws.

Our experience in these areas is deep and extensive, including transfer pricing, international tax, treaty interventions, direct taxes and related areas, goods and services tax, customs duty, excise duty, equalisation levy, transactional taxes and other relevant, applicable laws.

What distinguishes us is our ability to lead independently and deliver end–to–end, holistic tax strategies and advice across a range of matters.

Chopra spearheads the tax litigation practice. Recent instructions on this front involved challenges before for the ITAT and High Court on behalf of global automotive, telecoms, technology and consumer goods companies.
