The firm has significant experience in handling all types of litigation matters at every level of the judicial hierarchy and alternate dispute resolution proceedings, such as arbitration and mediation matters (both international and domestic arbitration). Apart from our settled presence in the Supreme Court of India and various High Courts, clients have recognized our competence in tax and regulatory laws and engaged us to appear on their behalf before specialized tribunals and statutory authorities across India.
The team has handled litigation cases involving direct and indirect taxes, corporate law, exchange control laws, foreign trade, competition, environment, labor, electricity, banking, property and telecommunication. The breadth of our team’s competence is reflected in our involvement in many landmark cases reported in law journals in all these specialized fields.
The ability of our team members to act both as counsel and solicitors at the original and appellate stages of litigation allows our clients to obtain streamlined representation without needing to outsource activities to other service providers. Our litigation team also has lawyers who are qualified as Advocates on Record in the Supreme Court. We also have systematic processes and specialized personnel to handle procedural functions in court registries.
When disputes are multi-jurisdictional or travel beyond the cities that house our offices, the team represents clients in collaboration with our extensive network of local advocates and senior counsel in almost every state in India.
