Two lawyers recognised by India Business Law Journal

Global Press release - Recognition April 2019

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright was featured on the India Business Law Journal’s annual International A-List with the inclusion of two of its London-based partners. Sherina Petit, Norton Rose Fulbright’s Head of India Practice, and Raj Karia, Norton Rose Fulbright’s EMEA Head of Corporate, M&A and Securities, were both recognised by the leading publication covering India’s legal market.

The list, which highlights the top 100 India-focused legal experts outside the country, is compiled from feedback supplied by in-house counsel at major Indian and global companies as well as private practice lawyers in India.

Sherina, who advises Indian companies on legal proceedings and arbitrations in London and other overseas locations, commented:

“India is an extremely important market to the global economy and many of our firm’s clients. Raj and I are honoured to receive this recognition, as it reflects the priority and focus that we place on India-related legal issues.”

Raj’s practice includes India-related mergers and acquisitions, equity capital markets, joint ventures, restructuring transactions and energy sector issues.

Norton Rose Fulbright has an in-depth knowledge of India’s market and local business practices. The firm has one of the leading and best-resourced legal practices in the region, maintaining strong ties and working closely with top Indian law firms in order to offer effective representation to clients.

The firm has a strong record of advising clients with interests in India, as well as acting for Indian corporations and financial institutions on their global activities. Norton Rose Fulbright does not advise on Indian law due to the Bar Council of India’s restrictions on foreign law firms
