This strength enables us to provide bespoke counsel to help our diverse clients negotiate any dynamic or volatile business environment. At AZB & Partners, collaboration is an everyday reality – we combine individual and mutual strengths to achieve collective growth.
Our culture & approach
Our people are passionate about the law and the work they do. They constantly endeavour to improve by sharing expertise and ideas. The Firm values team work as much as it does individual initiative and contribution. Our teams are encouraged to think laterally and solve problems with a fresh and relevant perspective.
We place a huge emphasis on ethical and professional responsibility, both within the Firm and in the way we deal with our clients. We maintain a constant vigil to protect client interests. The Firm invests considerable time and resource to anticipate and resolve legal or regulatory issues affecting our clients; doing so has helped us forge and maintain lasting client relationships.
The Firm’s clients include an array of domestic and international companies. These range from privately owned to publicly listed companies, including Fortune 500 entities, multinational companies (MNCs), Investment Banks, Private Equity firms and more across the world. The Firm has also built, through its many professional engagements, strong relationships with specialists, regulatory authorities and several international law firms.
AZB & Partners is proud of the quality of professional talent it fosters. Every lawyer is firmly dedicated to serving clients and delivering effective counsel at all times. Though our lawyers represent a diverse mix of backgrounds, they each share a proven record of academic and professional excellence. Several professionals in the Firm are graduates from premier global universities, including Harvard, Columbia, Cambridge, Oxford and the London School of Economics among others. Several partners are members of international bar associations, notably New York.
Besides a law degree, some partners hold professionals accounting qualifications, ideally placing the Firm to address complex finance and tax matters. AZB & Partners lays significant emphasis on continual development for its people. Besides one-on-one mentoring from partners, we ensure periodic and comprehensive professional training for all our Associates.
Our Purpose is to be excellent lawyers, working as a team. To deliver creative solutions to problems, timely execution and seasoned judgment. To focus relentlessly on the interests of our clients as their business partners.
