The Future Aspiration
According to Mr. Ghosh, as the law is evolving every day, traditional practices have to evolve to service oriented practices. More and more tribunals are being set up and the judicial framework is moving away from set norms. The High Courts and the Supreme Court are now acting more as constitutional courts and litigation lawyers now have a wider field to develop specialized practice. The Firm has set up a strong practice to cater to matters in various benches of the National Company Law Tribunals for company law matters as well as matters under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code across all the benches in India and represents financial creditors, operational creditors and corporate debtors.
Keeping in mind such avenues and opportunities, the Firm expanded to multiple locations and is now continuing to carry on city wise expansion of practice. The Firm is also opening up new departments of practice within existing offices to cater to the demands of the day.
