With one of the largest and fastest growing economies in the world, India is an exciting place for global business and entrepreneurs.
COVID-19 and the economic slowdown will pose a major challenge, but India remains a priority for the UK post-Brexit with high-level commitment on both sides to make the most of opportunities and historic ties.
Our India team provides the personal touch that comes from a deep understanding and extensive experience advising clients with interests in the Indian market.
Headed by Rupa Lakha, our team includes English and Indian-qualified lawyers in our London and Dubai offices, many of whom have either lived and worked in India or maintain close ties. They know the issues that arise from UK – India personal and business connections, and use this experience and understanding to guide clients.
We work with British Asian entrepreneurs with complex UK and cross-border issues, Indian businesses with global interests and international corporates operating in India.
We’ve built strong relationships with some of India’s leading law firms and professional advisers to provide ‘on the ground’ advice if you need local support. We regularly partner with them on events and insights to ensure our clients are up-to-date on the issues that affect them.
Our exclusive legal partnership with Asian Wealth Media connects the team and our clients to the British Asian entrepreneur community with bespoke events, introductions and features on the issues affecting their business.
