India Business Law Journal Names K&L Gates Among Top Firms for India-Related Work in 2022 Report
K&L Gates has been recognized again as a “Significant Player” in India Business Law Journal’s 2022 report spotlighting top foreign law firms with India practices.
Work highlights in this year’s report include the firm’s representation of a Singapore company in an ICC arbitration involving a boiler coal supply contract with an Indian company and our representation of an Indian multi-sectoral conglomerate involved in contractual disputes with the owner of a resort. The report also notes that we were instructed by a major low-cost airline to restructure various aircraft lease agreements and engaged by a client to obtain a patent-to-product candidate (an antibody) that binds HLA-G for cancer treatment.
Also highlighted was the firm’s recently introduced diversity hours policy, which enables our lawyers to count up to 50 hours of time spent on diversity and inclusion-related work (such as mentoring or assisting in the recruitment of diverse or female candidates) towards annual thresholds use to determine bonuses.
Now in its 16th year, IBLJ’s rankings are based on extensive research conducted by seasoned researchers into the type and complexity of India-related work that international law firms have undertaken over the last 12 months. It is also based on feedback from interviews with India-focused corporate counsel around the world, as well as with partners at both Indian and international law firms.
Earlier this year, Pallavi Mehta Wahi, Co-United States and Seattle managing partner and co-chair of the firm’s India practice, and Raja Bose, Singapore disputes and international arbitration partner, were named in IBLJ’s A-List 2022 as two of India’s Top 100 Foreign Lawyers for India-related matters.
