Clasis Law

Awareness and importance about India’s legal industry continue to hold surprising sway among lawyers and clients, both inside and outside the country. Expertise is flourishing in new practice areas such as competition law, environmental law, international trade law, outbound foreign direct investment, including restructuring and insolvency. A growing count of firms is also exploring alternative pricing models, heralding a not-too-distant day when alternate pricing arrangements may be preferred as against the hourly billing model. Many large and mid-sized law firms are aiming to form a pan-India presence, adding more practices and expanding their reach by acquiring smaller firms.

Words of Inspiration
“There is no substitute for hard work. I started my professional journey as a lawyer from the proverbial bottom of the pyramid and today after having been on the top for a long time, I see myself working as hard as when I started, in fact more. To me the greatest factor for success is hard work and rigour. No amount of add-ons can ever paper over a shoddy job done due to lack of hard work and diligence. The other most important factor is having an impeccable professional integrity. When a client knows that its lawyer’s professional integrity and ethics are unassailable that is when they reward you with their trust and where there is trust there is no dearth of good work.” Vineet asserts.
“Fortune favours the brave!” is the prime faith of Clasis Law. They started small but had larger aspirations, they took chances, risked many things, took a beating, kept their head above water, found the ground beneath their feet, rose again and ultimately everything fell in the right place. The Firm has always punched above its weight and that has spelled success for them.
