The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Singapore and Khaitan & Co hosted a lunch seminar themed “Essential Legal and Regulatory Insights: Navigating Indian Matters for Singapore-Based In-House Counsel” on 20 March.

The event at Altro Zafferano, Ocean Financial Centre attracted legal professionals keen on understanding the complexities of engaging with India’s dynamic market. Ravi Lambah, head of direct investments and head of India at Temasek International, kick-started with an insightful overview of India’s rise as a global powerhouse, now the world’s fifth-largest economy, and fourth in stock market size.

He also emphasised Singapore’s critical role as India’s top foreign direct investment (FDI) contributor to India.

Lambah attributed this status to a series of key developments including enhanced government involvement, increased funding access for entrepreneurs, improved investment liquidity, wage parity in Asia, significant infrastructure spending, and reversal of the brain- drain trend.

Building on this broader economic context, Khaitan & Co partners Anuj Shah and Kartikey Mahajan presented a focused briefing on navigating legal and regulatory challenges in India’s business landscape.

Strategic advice was also included on avoiding risks, managing litigation, and understanding alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms, including insights into the legal framework, choice of law and jurisdiction issues.

Additionally, the Khaitan & Co partners covered critical topics such as labour and employment considerations, stamp duty processes and competition law implications, completing a comprehensive guide for legal professionals.

The seminar and presentations were specifically designed to support in-house counsel, enhancing their expertise to ensure effective management of India legal matters, and steering deal structures from preliminary planning to post-deal integration.
