BCLP recognized as a “Firm to Watch” in India Business Law Journal
BCLP has been recognized as a “Firm to Watch” in India Business Law Journal’s 16thannual report, which draws on an analysis of more than 600 law firms from every continent that have recorded deals and disputes with an Indian connection in the past 12 months.
The report identifies 19 firms to watch. Some of these firms are huge entities, providing Indian clients with access to multi-jurisdictional services and broad practice area expertise. Others have cultivated specialist knowledge, boasting strong capabilities across industries, and creating regional networks to assist India-focused clients with contentious and non-contentious needs.
BCLP has collaborated with Indian clients and law firms on a variety of matters, from asset financing and M&A to corporate restructuring, real estate and litigation, the report noted. The firm advised Pristine Surgical on its acquisition of Bengaluru-based sustainable hyper-scale data service provider Mimyk Medical Simulations in relation to a data center development in Mumbai; and Fairstead on cross-border structuring and other formation issues concerning a new Indian subsidiary. It is also advising an Indian company on possible enforcement action of an arbitral award against one or more of its US subsidiaries.
“BCLP has an excellent set of lawyers,” says Vihang Virkar, a partner at Lumiere Law Partners. “All partners and others that we worked with are efficient, technically sound and great at getting deals done. Their extensive exposure to India gives them an edge as they understand how Indian businesses function, and what typical concerns Indian companies have.” Partners Jonathan Morris, Jamie Wiseman-Clarke, Oran Gelb and John Welge are well regarded.
