One of India’s few internationally prominent tax boutiques, Krishnomics Legal was highly praised in our research, with managing partner Gagan Kumar being hailed as a “leading light” in the industry.
Kumar is a former principal associate at Amarchand and has also worked at KPMG, where he helped set up the carbon credit practice. He has built up extensive experience in the contentious and advisory aspects of tax law and has represented various corporates before the Supreme Court, Delhi High Court, Income Tax Appellate Tribunal and the Commissioner of Income Tax.
The firm successfully represented Olympus India before the Delhi High Court in an income tax matter last year, and is currently acting for Sagar Ratna Restaurants before the same forum in a VAT matter. The corporate team meanwhile has advised Axiss Dental in a number of acquisitions of late.
