We are pleased to have been named a “Significant Player” for India Work byIndia Business Law Journal, appearing in its 10th annual report which showcases the India-related achievements and activities of law firms around the world. The report draws on analysis of over 600 law firms from every continent that have recorded transactions or cases with an Indian connection over the past year, taking views from in house and external counsel, and private law firms in India.
The report states: “A strong capital markets practice has enabled Squire Patton Boggs to sail effortlessly through to the Significant Players category. In 2015, the firm completed more than 35 rule 144A and regulation S securities offerings and M&A transactions worth a total value of more than US$4 billion and acted as special US securities law counsel to Indian and international banks such as Barclays, HSBC, Hinduja Group, the Zee Group and State Bank of India on Indian IPOs and other offerings. Under the leadership of Biswajit Chatterjee, the firm was an adviser on IPOs by Equitas Holdings, Infibeam, Quess Corp, Hinduja Leyland Finance, Prabhat Dairy, VRL Logistics and Power Mech Projects. It is currently representing Bharat Heavy Electricals, Citigroup Global Markets India and Edelweiss Financial Services on BHEL’s US$1.5 billion offer for sale. One Indian client says Chatterjee offers a ‘very mature and measured approach’ and is ‘available 24/7.’ Parag Raval, the chief administrative officer at Infibeam, says the firm is ‘very professional and responsive.’”
Biswajit Chatterjee, Corporate partner and a member of our India Group, commented: “I am delighted that we have been recognized by India Business Law Journal as a firm committed to its practice in India. This is the fourth consecutive year that we have been named in this report, underlining the strength of reputation we have established for our experience in India-related work.”
