Our Distinctive Factor

As trusted advisors to our clients, we at Nishith Desai Associates are known for identifying complex issues early on in a transaction. Each stage of the deal is overlooked either by a partner-in-charge or a designated practice head. Motivated most by passion and intellect, we strive to be a community of responsible and ethical individuals. Indulging in any form of corrupt practice, internally or externally, is a non-negotiable policy and we treat it very seriously. Our non-hierarchical team is professionally diverse and specialized to provide an in depth knowledge of frameworks to do smooth business in India.

Our Work

Nishith Desai Associates is regarded as a tier 1 law firm in India and consistently ranked high. We have listed various reputed Indian companies on the NASDAQ and the NYSE, along with representing international, blue-chip brands entering India. We remain committed to presenting timely, technically strong deliverables and score high on client satisfaction in the RSG survey. We have served as legal consels to matters that have received land mark judgements at the Supreme Court of India and other courts especially challenging the unjust bureaucratic decisions. Mr. Desai has personally appeared in many of these cases. We enjoy doing work that's creative and engaging to keep us intellectually stimulated and excited. Our path is to find new trajectories of answering seemingly complicated problems without breaking the law. Along the way we have devised sophisticated systems and processes that help achieve these goals without increasing the client's budget, which is concern for us. Beyond transactional work, we support communally sound projects and endeavors via our social sector practice.
