Indian Sub-Continent

With more than 40 lawyers and consultants in our Indian Sub-Continent group, our International practice has extensive experience of the Indian/South Asian Sub-Continent, which includes the following SAARC (the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Our experience also extends to Mauritius, a SAARC observer country, because of its special business links with the SAARC countries.

Other than English, a number of our lawyers, consultants and staff interested in these countries also speak Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu. Firmwide our lawyers, consultants and staff speak more than 40 languages.

Overview

India’s extraordinary economic growth in recent years has seen a surge in both inward and outward investments in India and an increased focus on the SAARC countries. McGuireWoods has a long history serving clients in the Indian/South Asian Sub-Continent, advising across a wide variety of practice areas. Over the years, our lawyers have developed the requisite detailed knowledge of cultural nuances that facilitate collaboration with local counsel in this region. We have fostered excellent working relationships with local law firms, especially in India where local laws do not permit McGuireWoods to have an office or advise on Indian law.

McGuireWoods has advised and assisted global corporations, institutional investors, financial institutions and SMEs from this region investing in, or expanding into, the US, UK and Europe. Our lawyers have extensive experience in dealing with various types of inward and outward transactions, in a variety of areas including M&A, capital markets, financing, joint ventures, corporate structuring, intellectual property, employment, litigation and arbitration. This experience coupled with our lawyers’ language skills, cultural knowledge of the region and strong non-exclusive local counsel relationships, enables us to manage inward and outward transactions between the US, UK, Europe and the Sub-Continent.

Our strengths in certain key sectors such as corporate, banking and financial services, private equity, clean technology, energy, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, mining, outsourcing, media and technology, and real estate enable us to cater for a wide variety of businesses.

Through McGuireWoods Consulting, our full service public affairs subsidiary, we can provide companies in the Indian Sub-Continent with assistance on government relations matters in the US, and also help them have a voice in shaping US legislation affecting their business and industries. McGuireWoods Consulting has offices in the US and Europe.

Our lawyers and consultants maintain relationships with the UK Trade and Industry representatives in the region, the UK India Business Council and local professional firms.
