A full-service law firm, Dhir & Dhir Associates was founded in 1993 to serve as a single-window service provider in a dynamic commercial environment. The firm pursues a philosophy of symbiotic relationships with clients and works as an integral part of the client’s team. It partners with lawyers across India and has global strategic alliances to provide legal services amongst diverse practice areas and industry verticals.

The Managing Partner of the firm started the practice of insolvency in the early 80s when distress asset advisory was practically unknown in the Indian context.  The firm has been a leading practitioner for the last four decades in all the legal and regulatory structures relating to resolution of corporate insolvency including BIFR, CDR, S4A, SARFAESI, DRT and M&A in the distressed assets.  This experience and expertise has propelled the Firm to become one of the leading law firms practicing in the corporate advisory and representation before NCLT, NCLAT, High Courts and Supreme Court of India relating to matters under the Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code 2016.
