Disputes

Expeditious enforcement of contracts is the lifeline of any investor friendly market. For this purpose, it is imperative that commercial disputes are disposed of speedily. The current economic scenario has brought with itself an optimistic investor sentiment in the country. As a result, we have seen a spate of recent government initiatives to inspire investor confidence. From the amendments to the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996, to consolidation of the insolvency and bankruptcy laws to introduction of the Commercial Courts, all efforts are directed towards alleviating the impediments in the path of conducting business.

Our disputes practice is primarily focused on commercial, contractual and regulatory disputes. While advising our clients, we take into account their business objectives and proceed to assess the commercial viability and reputational risks of litigation. Our disputes practice contributes effectively not only in dealing with disputes but also in preventing potential disputes from affecting the business of our clients. Our lawyers aim to provide commercially viable and practical solutions.
