    Despite a small number of partners and lawyers, LawQuest is internationally renowned as one of India’s leading providers of immigration law advice. Further strong credentials in employment matters, disputes and foreign investment, as well as an impressive geographical reach due to its three offices, contribute to the firm’s “wonderful” reputation among our sources.


    “The top choice” for foreign lawyers seeking immigration advice in India, Poorvi Chothani is the firm’s founder, managing partner and figurehead. Celebrating 30 years of admission to the Indian bar this year, she has handled work permit, visa and registration matters in countries all over the world and is further licensed to practice in New York and England and Wales. Such a global standing has allowed Chothani to secure a specialisation in handling complex employment issues arising out of corporate restructuring or multijurisdictional corporate issues.

    Heading the firm’s IP team, Pooja Dutta specialises in trademark and copyright prosecution as well as software and technology licensing, and regularly represents clients in corporate transactions and disputes. Vindu Pandey leads the firm’s litigation team and regularly appears before the High Court of Bombay in corporate, civil, criminal and constitutional matters.
