Commercial Litigation

Commercial disputes in India are becoming increasingly difficult to tackle. Expanding business, high stakes, changing regulatory requirements, hyper-technical methodologies, corporate scrutiny and complex transactions are the major contributing factors. Often organizations and individuals seek to pro-actively reduce their risk by promptly bringing their matter to a closure in a cost-effective and efficient manner.
