Together with our Executive Chairman, Shardul S. Shroff, our partners and associates bring to the new firm a renewed energy, building on the experience and reputation of Amarchand & Mangaldas and Suresh A. Shroff and Co.

Our mission is enabling business by providing solutions as trusted advisers, through excellence, responsiveness, innovation, and collaboration.

Enabling Business

Our guiding principle is to enable business. Understanding business and providing sound and pragmatic advice to advance our client’s goals is the key to what we do. Many of India’s leading business houses have turned to us to help secure their objectives. We represent many overseas companies, including multinationals, on their entry and operations in India, as well as, in some cases, their exit from India.

Providing Solutions

We aim to provide our clients across the globe a seamless service focused on achieving solutions. Our lawyers are experienced at navigating the complex web of law and regulations in India, to secure results for our clients. Given our strong transactional and litigation practices, we believe we are uniquely placed to understand and mitigate risk.

Trusted Advisers

Trust is at the core of what we do. We take pride in the ethical heritage of our Firm and are known for our integrity and honesty. We go beyond the provision of legal advice and representation, to counseling clients on their strategies, goals and vision. We believe our clients repose their trust in us and are always committed to going that extra mile for them.


We strive for excellence in whatever we do. We believe that excellence is based on continuous development and consistency. It is about exceeding expectations and giving it your all every day. We are pleased to be viewed as the law firm of choice for the most significant transactions and complex litigations in India, and as having the ability to deliver out-of-the-box solutions.

For us, nurturing excellence is also fundamental. We are proud of attracting and retaining the brightest and the best.


Our pan-India presence is aimed at ensuring that we are able to respond to your needs across the country. However, we believe that responsiveness extends beyond the act of being on location or replying promptly to e-mails or calls. We believe that responsiveness implies a proactive element that results in our ability to understand and interpret your needs and allows a response that is commercially valuable to you. The Associates at the Firm are handpicked from some of the premier international and Indian law schools 2 Firm Profile


We believe and invest in innovation. Innovation has many forms – we aim to “lead the law” for the benefit of our clients through innovative solutions. Many of our lawyers are thought leaders, who are at the forefront of debates on legislative and regulatory changes. Senior members of the Firm are regularly invited to participate in government committees and have been involved in the drafting of important legislation such as the Companies Act and the Takeover Code.

We also invest in the latest technology to ensure that we are equipped with the best tools to provide our clients with an efficient service.


We emphasize heavily on collaboration: collaboration between our six offices in order to provide the right person for the job as well as an efficient, continuous service; collaboration with you as our client to ensure that we understand your drivers and goals; and collaboration with the government to ensure that we have the finger on the pulse and can anticipate and advise you on the latest changes to the law, regulation and an innovative solution.

We also collaborate regularly with law firms across the world on multi-jurisdictional transactions with a focus on ensuring uniform quality, seamless delivery, and efficient service. We are proud to be the exclusive Indian member firm for the prestigious Lex Mundi network of independent law firms around the world.

The firm has humble origins. It was started in 1985 in a single room set up by the two founders with no prior experience working in a law firm. Both the founders had outstanding academic records and focussed on their deep understanding of the law to form the foundation of the firm.

Even today, the firm prides itself for its commitment towards knowing the law and encouraging its professionals to be at the forefront of the latest legal developments.

An early choice that the firm made was to combine the knowledge of law with the highest ethical practices. It allows the firm to set clear boundaries within which the professionals operate with freedom.

The diversity of people makes the firm. Many of our professionals are dual qualified having studied science, engineering or accounting as their primary qualification. We work with professionals who have had significant industry or policy experience. Some of the brightest lawyers from law schools are part of the firm. A diverse mix allows the firm to collaborate effectively, address areas where law combines with technology or accounting and design solutions for the clients.

The firm believes in technology as a driver for legal services in the future. We invest heavily in technology and infrastructure, which allows our professionals and clients to work more efficiently, collaborate effectively and maintain standards. We work closely with a spectrum of technology companies from start-ups to leading technology companies to deliver value to our eco-system.
