    Dhall Law Chambers’ much admired competition work has made it one of the best-recognised Indian firms in the field in its brief lifespan. Vinod Dhall was the first chairman of the Competition Commission of India and is “a giant in India”, while the firm’s “best friends” association with Linklaters LLP offers clients seamless domestic and international antitrust expertise. In addition, the firm is recommended for its regulatory and compliance advice to international clients doing business in India, as well as its work in IP and transactional matters.
