Our dedicated India Desk, headed by Manmohan Singh, works with major organisations with a South Asian dimension, including India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Our advice spans all commercial areas, both contentious and non-contentious, and includes inbound work (such as South Asian corporates acquiring businesses in the UK or highly skilled, high value individuals, investors and entrepreneurs seeking residency in the UK), outbound work (such as European or US origin businesses considering a move into the South Asian marketplace) as well as supporting the activities of South Asian organisations in the UK (for example putting in place efficient corporate structures for family run businesses, with a view to expansion, strategic review or succession planning).

Our full range of services includes banking and finance, mergers and acquisitions, contracts and agreements, commercial litigation and dispute management, competition law, regulatory, employment and pension law and real estate.

Aware of the restrictions on foreign lawyers practising local law in various South Asian jurisdictions, we have taken time to build a strong network of local lawyers. Working collaboratively we ensure our commitment to client service and legal knowledge extends throughout every transaction.

Our team of India specialists understand your needs, as well as the culture in which you work. We’re committed to helping you to achieve your business objectives.
