Client feedback 

The team at Clasis Law is very proactive and efficient.”– Corporate and M&A 

Vineet Aneja 

I recommend Mr. Vineet Aneja without any doubt. I would emphasise that he is very proactive. We are a European company that had presence in India and of course we do not have  profound knowledge of the Indian legal system. Mr. Aneja helped us during the process of closing our liaison office in the country. He informed us of all  the steps of the process with a lot of detail. He visualized the difficulties and problems that may have occurred during the process and he provided solutions to avoid them or fix them ahead of time. I would also highlight that he was very quick responding to our questions and preparing all of the documents, enabling us to complete the whole process in a brief period of time.
