Litigation & Arbitration

As the Indian economy grows rapidly and businesses expand or consolidate, commercial disputes have seen a rise, as has scrutiny and follow-on litigation by regulatory authorities.

DSK Legal’s Dispute Resolution Team has been recognized for its in-depth experience and creativity in handling a wide spectrum of disputes for domestic and international clients in courts and tribunals, including representing clients in diverse domestic and international arbitrations.

More often than not, dispute resolution in India can stretch over a long period of time. With its keen sense of local jurisdictional nuance, our team has the ability to move quickly and make each hearing effective, so that our clients feel supported throughout the entire process. While we appreciate a business’s determination to pursue legal remedies, we are pragmatic in our approach and understand the need to balance financial exposure against other interests. We work out a dispute resolution strategy in close coordination with our clients, aiming to resolve disputes as quickly and as cost effectively as possible. The drafting is done in-house, keeping in mind the best interest of our clients while lucidly putting forth their case. Our team works effectively with international law/consulting firms to deliver seamless solutions in cross-border cases.

DSK Legal’s clients include multinationals, Indian corporates, banks, funds and investors, real estate developers, governmental authorities and high net-worth individuals.
