With the hiring activity dominating the private practice firms and in-house setups, there is a certain level of positivity that seems to have engulfed the legal industry. With ample credit to the latest stance from the Indian Government, there is a visible rise in terms of productivity, expansion and revenue. In the entire steady growth story that we hear, the legal industry has played quite a dynamic role and that too at a macro level. The rejuvenated FDI flow in the country could be largely credited to the new liberalization steps taken by the government.
Apart from traditionally counseling Mergers & Acquisitions, Securities & Capital Markets, Dispute Resolution and much more, the Law Firms have played a major role in shaping up various economic laws which have been recently enacted and are also playing a significant role in their implementation through their practice across all their work places. These firms are also playing a major role in even the executive accords of the various Industrial sectors. Hence, with an ever rising demand, arises the ever rising competition amongst the law firms in the country. The Indian Government is currently considering opening up the legal sector to the international players and this puts the Indian players under immense pressure to perform above average.
S.K. Singhi & Co. LLP is a young professional Indian Law Firm that deals with litigation matters of varied nature and devises specific strategy for each matter.
