50 Indian law firms that are on the ascent

By Rebecca Abraham

India’s legal market has long been dominated by a handful of law firms. But, while these firms face increasing competition, not least from in-house legal teams, a number of less-talked about firms are growing in stature and capability.

Often headed by lawyers who have peeled away from the larger firms, these rising stars are finding a space for themselves in India’s legal constellation, which by the government’s calculations is estimated to be worth US$9 billion.

With India Business Law Journal’s Rising Stars of India’s legal profession award, we applaud their promise and potential. While several of these law firms (see a complete list at the bottom of this page) are already well on their way to becoming providers of top-class advice and representation, the rest are not far behind.

India Business Law Journal’s list of 50 rising stars of India’s legal profession was compiled following an extensive consultation exercise in which in-house counsel were invited to nominate up-and-coming Indian law firms that have the potential to become market leaders. They were asked to nominate law firms as opposed to individual lawyers, and to consider new firms as well as long-established firms that have recently reinvigorated themselves and show great promise.

Our final list of 50 Rising Stars reflects the nominations received combined with India Business Law Journal’s editorial team’s more than 30 years of collective experience in documenting and analysing India’s legal market.

All Indian law firms, except those that have been award winners in India Business Law Journal’s annual Indian Law Firm Awards in the recent past (and whose stars may therefore be considered to have already risen), were eligible for consideration. As always, there were no fees or any other requirements for being considered.
