    One of the old guard of Indian law firms with more than a century of trading to its name, Fox Mandal remains one of the most recognisable names in the county’s legal marketplace. Traditionally praised for its work in the natural resources sector, the firm also enjoys a good
    reputation for its corporate work.


    Som Mandal is the firm’s managing partner and is internationally lauded for his work in the oil and gas sector as well as his corporate advisory practice.


    In the past year the firm has acted for the Indiabulls group in an acquisition of shares in Indiabulls Finance Company from Amaprop. The firm has also acted as co-counsel (with J Sagar) to South Korea’s Posco in its challenge to an Orissa High Court ruling.
