Morgan Lewis’s India initiative draws on our lawyers’ personal connections to the country and experience with its customs to help clients navigate India’s unique economic and diverse cultural environment. Combining this local know-how with a global perspective, our team has been advising Indian and international companies on cross-border transactions and international disputes for decades. We offer a robust suite of services both to international companies seeking to do business in India and to India-based companies pursuing a global presence.

Our India initiative, comprising more than 30 lawyers, several of whom are India qualified, is led by lawyers from our Silicon Valley, Singapore, London, and Dubai offices. Collaborating across teams and offices, we advise our clients on a variety of business, regulatory, and governmental matters, from complex cross-border transactions and disputes to international tax planning and investment management. We also assist global companies with matters related to investments, expansion, and outsourcing as they enter into and further develop their business ventures in India.
