    Under the leadership of Vishal Gandhi, this small Mumbai outfit eschews a traditional law firm structure, favouring a staff made up entirely of associates. In just over a decade the firm has established itself as a strong provider of cross-border transactional advice, including M&A and joint ventures, private equity, franchising and IP licensing. Arbitration, litigation and IP disputes are also part of the firm’s offering.

    In the past year the firm has worked on a large outsourcing matter for US vehicle rental company Avis Budget Group; handled an asset purchase transaction for 21st Century Group; and acted in a film production collaboration agreement for Cinemorphic alongside various other venture capital and arbitration matters for confidential clients.
