    Traditionally recognised as a “top tier” provider of IT and IT-enabled services work, MMB Legal has impressed clients across the board in the past year. A series of engagements and deals in sectors such as sport, manufacturing, infrastructure and media attest to the MMB’s active full-service offering, which has been boosted by the recent establishment of an alternative dispute resolution and litigation practice within the firm.


    Mahesh Madan Bhat heads the firm and is especially well known for his experience in the infrastructure sector, having represented multiple stakeholders involved in one of India’s most high-profile airport development projects in recent years. He is also retained by various sportspersons on a variety of business ventures. Nandish Patel heads the new disputes practice and regularly represents clients before the High Courts and Supreme Court and in arbitration proceedings.


    The firm represented the state government of Karnataka with respect to a joint venture with a public-sector company in the natural gas sector over the past year. Other clients have included real estate developers, media production houses and prominent Indian banks.
