Samvād: Partners is a full-service corporate law firm committed to providing innovative and quality legal advice, maintaining the highest levels of professional integrity and nurturing our lawyers in an environment that motivates them to achieve the highest standards. In Sanskrit, the word ‘Samvad’ means ‘discussion, dialogue, debate, engagement.’
‘Samvad’ underpins the firm’s core philosophy. Samvad coalesced from a merger of regional practices in Bengaluru, Chennai and Mumbai and expanded to a full-service corporate law firm, with offices in Delhi and Hyderabad as well, giving the firm pan-India coverage. The firm has grown steadily over the years to 100 lawyers and staff.
The firm has unique distinctions – the majority of our partners have a rich mix of domestic and international experience, having worked in international financial and legal centres, including Hong Kong, London, New York, Singapore and the Hague.
Celebrating diversity is fundamental to Samvad. A majority of our partners are women; and many of our lawyers are acknowledged leaders in their respective fields. Our gender diversity ratio is probably the best in the country, presently. Nearly 87% of our partners are women. This makes us unique not just among Indian, but also global law firms.
Our commercially savvy lawyers regularly lead corporate transactions (domestic and cross-border) and complex disputes across a variety of industries. Please email us at [email protected] for further details.
