How can we help you?

International law firm Trowers & Hamlins has announced the launch of its India Desk.

As part of the firm’s wider Asia strategy, the India Desk will provide a dedicated full-service offering for Indian businesses, global corporations with a presence in India and private clients, in support of their international legal needs.

The newly formed desk comprises a global team of lawyers from key practice areas across the firm. The desk will be led by Debopam Dutta, based in Oman, who has more than a decade of experience working on the ground in India and on international India-facing transactions out of Singapore, London and Tokyo. He will be supported by a core team of multilingual Indian and Indian-origin specialists based in offices across the UK and the Middle East, including Unkar Chanian in Bahrain, Navinder Grover in London, and Sapna Desai in Dubai. The team has an in-depth understanding of the cultural aspects and regulatory climate of the Indian market, giving the team and the firm a strong foundation to open up its expertise to Indian clients, and those with a commercial interest in India, across multiple jurisdictions. 

Sara Bailey, Senior Partner at Trowers, commented:

"The launch of our India Desk is an important part of our strategy for Asia. Whilst we are already working with Indian businesses in this space, the India Desk will help to coordinate our work as we embark on this exciting new chapter with a team of highly experienced lawyers who have considerable knowledge of working with Indian businesses and investors."

Debopam Dutta, Head – India Desk, added:

"The Indian economy is currently one of the fastest growing in the world, making it a key market for a number of our clients. The launch of the India Desk is another important step in the firm's growth trajectory, providing our clients and contacts with comprehensive legal expertise on their inbound and outbound India-focused transactions and disputes. In order to better serve our existing networks in the GCC, the UK and Asia, the new India Desk establishes a structured platform to extend our offering beyond the day to day delivery of transactional and advisory legal services, and provides our clients with fresh thinking and commercially-driven solutions to help them navigate this key market."
