India

We offer a robust suite of services to clients seeking to do business in India and the Asia-Pacific region as well as companies based in India wanting to expand operations elsewhere. Drawing on our deep familiarity with countries’ unique economic environments, we serve as counsel to some of the largest global corporations and financial institutions active in this part of the world.

Collaborating in teams, we advise our clients on a variety of legal, business, regulatory, and governmental matters, from complex cross-border transactions and disputes to international tax planning. We also assist global companies in connection with their entry into and development of business ventures in India and relating to investments, expansion, and outsourcing.

Our lawyers, many of them Chambers-ranked, draw on the knowledge and resources of colleagues in our firm’s Singapore, Tokyo, China, and Kazakhstan offices, and tap the around-the-clock network of Morgan Lewis lawyers in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America.

We regularly collaborate with leading Indian law firms (in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and other commercial hubs) on the range of India-related matters, including:

  • International transactions and disputes for companies headquartered in India doing business in the United States, Europe, Russia/Commonwealth of Independent States, Asia, and elsewhere
  • Foreign direct investment and securities trading involving India
  • Expansion of Indian companies into the United States and around the world
  • Outsourcing to India
