The Firm is a result of the merger of two firms. In 2012, Argus Partners merged with an existing Mumbai-headquartered firm, Udwadia and Udeshi, that was established in 1997. The merged firm was renamed ‘Udwadia Udeshi and Argus Partners.

Murtaza has also represented many clients in high stake domestic and international arbitration proceedings.

Progressing With Technology

International arbitration proceedings’ modern technology has transformed the legal industry like any other. It has increased the efficiency of the legal offices and enhanced the productivity of the clerks. Almost 63% of the work in the legal process is manual and repetitive, prone to human errors too.

Process automation through the application of the word processors and eDiscovery software has streamlined and accelerated the legal processes. The online digital libraries of various courts are ready to access for any time reference reducing the dependability of paper-based hard copies.

Modern systems have guided the lawyers through streamlining the process, thereby offering greater efficiency with reduced errors and faster decision-making.

Surging from Challenges

Insufficient and incomplete information from the clients proved to be one of the initial challenges. Murtaza had to convince the clients to provide complete facts and figures with all relevant details to fortify the case with the proper legal angle. Secondly, the client’s attitude was highly impatient and too desperate to get the case results. He convinced them by explaining the complete legal process and compliance and his professional approach.

The organization’s systematic documentation, follow-ups, and furnishing of all the relevant data and evidence. This alertness and complete control over the case progress have given power and strength to its consistent efforts.

Indulging in the Words of the Wise

“I would always tell young lawyers to develop a learning approach in every case. The secret to your success lies in how hard you work in gathering maximum evidence, details, and all the law references that can make the case strong in court. Winning cases requires tremendous consistency, relentless efforts in building the case, and focused follow-up in taking up of the case,” expresses Murtaza as a pearl of wisdom for the budding aspirants.

“Observe and learn different cases from the court reference archives. Work with experienced lawyers to understand the process of building and formulating cases. Always remember that there are no shortcuts here. You can get a little support from the technology; however, you must work hard on your case, considering it your own responsibility,” he adds. 

Embracing the Future Roadmap

Sharing his opinions about the future of Argus Partners, Murtaza says, “We must work hard. We work as a single unit complementing each other. Working as disciplined professionals, we prepare the case papers with the complete client details, client requirements and a basic conclusion on the present-day scenario.”

“Then we begin with a specific approach to furnishing all sorts of details that could probably support the case. Most of our clients have been impressed by our systematic work and the strong winning possibilities. We have planned to take this professional approach more forth in developing our case process towards efficient and effective case results,” he concludes.
