Independent intelligence on this law firm
The following information is sourced directly from India Business Law Journal and/or Law.asia and is not part of the directory listing provided by the law firm.
Geoffrey Picton-Turbervill, a senior consultant at Ashurst, speaks highly of managing partner Gopika Pant’s credentials: “She is extremely bright and knowledgeable, and is therefore able to provide the very best legal advice in a pragmatic manner and with a commercial context.” He also acknowledges partners Vineet Gupta and Kanika Premnarayen as “extremely good lawyers who provide a professional and responsive service”.
“The depth of knowledge at the firm is, in my view, without parallel in India,” says Bharat Dube, senior adviser for brand protection at Authentix. ILP assisted in a merger between Authentix and Strategic IP Information last year. “Gopika Pant has to be one of India’s finest lawyers,” says Dube. “She is very sophisticated, has a deep knowledge of the law … and the ability to grasp complex issues.”
“I work mostly with Vineet Gupta who has been great,” says Briana Meginniss, a counsel at MLB in New York. “I’m most impressed with the responsiveness and the quality of those responses. I am confident in the guidance I receive.”
One, who wishes to remain anonymous, says lawyers at the firm are “very proactive and approachable at all levels”.
Siddharth Bhaiya, president of SB Indo Advisors, echoes those sentiments: “Indian Law Partners’ knowledge of the latest changes in law, attention to detail and top-notch service were well appreciated.” Pant and partner Vineet Gupta are commended “for their excellent experience of working with clients from all over the world”.
Richard Gubbins at Ashurst says his firm’s clients “are so pleased that they now instruct Indian Law Partners direct”. He recommends partner Kanika Premnarayen, who manages the firm’s Mumbai office.
“ILP may be a smaller firm compared to SAM, CAM, Khaitan, etc., but their professionalism, knowledge and strong network through Ashurst … definitely make them one of the leading law firms in India,” says Siddharth Bhaiya at SB Indo Advisors.
