The infrastructure sector has become the key driver of the economy and includes roads, real estate, and highways. We have carved our niche and pride ourselves on assisting many large infrastructure giants in the country and abroad. Our panel of lawyers provide a complete range of services including advisory services. Due to our team’s in-depth understanding of the nuances of the Infra Sector, the Firm is able to pay attention to the peculiarities of this industry and provides holistic services for the client for all its legal advisory or representative needs in the projects and infrastructure space. In the past we have regularly advised our clients on Public-Private Partnership (PPP) where one of the projects that is very close to our heart and stands testament to our strengths is when we advised IDOM – worlds largest architectural firm based out of Spain for their flagship projects – the East Delhi Hub and Dwarka Convention Centre. What makes this even more significant is that these projects were directly overseen by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
Energy keeps the world running making it one of the most fundamental regions in any economy. Without a doubt, it has produced many legal disputes and controversies since its conception. The sector is an interconnection of systems, infrastructural projects, and large corporations, and it is for this reason that many practice areas seem to merge streams when handling energy legal matters. It bears close political, social, and governmental scrutiny and intrusion which gives rise to giant legal complexities in the sector. Naturally, global, and domestic corporations working in the field of the energy sector need a law firm that deeply understands the sector and is in touch with the rising challenges as well as social & political, consequence, and is able to help in mitigating business risks and to successfully achieve business goals.
