India Business Law Journal teamed up with the Indian Corporate Counsel Association to compile a definitive list of the country’s most recommended private practice lawyers.

Rebecca Abraham reports

What does it take to be one of India’s top lawyers? “An excellent grasp of both legal issues and, perhaps more importantly, the commercial imperatives behind transations,” remarks Alasdair Steele, a partner at Nabarro, describing Bharat Anand, a New Delhi-based partner at Khaitan & Co.

“Impeccable litigating aptitude … brilliant on-the-feet thinking,” says Shukla Wassan, executive director of legal and corporate affairs for South Asia at Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages, describing Ruby Singh Ahuja, a partner at Karanjawala & Co.


Comments such as these, sent to India Business Law Journal by clients of Indian lawyers, suggest that clients not only look for lawyers with deep knowledge and wide experience, but also with commercial acumen, who can meet deadlines and help them traverse the thickets of regulation that criss-cross India.

Added to this, most international clients seek out lawyers in India who have international experience.
