1. About DSK Legal

DSK Legal was set up in 2001 and has since established an excellent reputation for its integrity and value-based proactive, pragmatic and innovative legal advice and its ability to help clients effectively traverse the complicated legal and regulatory regime in India. With offices in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, and Pune, DSK Legal has grown rapidly on the strength of its expertise to a multi-disciplinary team with 58 partners and associate partners, and about 300 fee earners. We are modern, agile, and inclusive in our outlook with a solution-oriented approach. We strongly promote diversity of thought, because we believe it helps us build strong teams with varied approaches and ideas to offer solutions that clients value.

At DSK Legal, we believe in establishing strong and enduring relationships with our clients by ensuring that we are always available to attend to our clients’ needs. It is always our endeavour to understand our clients’ commercial goals. We are transparent in our working and commit ourselves to time-bound and cost-effective advice that protects our client’s interests.

The reputation that we have so strenuously built for ourselves has led to us being appointed by market leading international and domestic businesses on several path breaking deals and critical disputes work. Our advice is sought repeatedly by Governments, and this valuable interaction has in turn helped us establish a significant knowledge base within our firm – a base that we tap into for the benefit of our clients.

Our commitment to our clients and work, attention to detail, transparent approach and formidable expertise in various areas of corporate and commercial law has not only won us recognition and awards from our peers and professional bodies, but has also attracted some of the best talent from leading law schools in India and abroad to work with us. We have strong relations with several international and domestic law firms in most jurisdictions across the world, which helps us provide clients with assistance in cross-border matters, or sometimes just introductions that our clients value.

2. Our Core Values

Commitment | to excellence in the quality of our work and exceeding client expectations | to fairness and integrity in all our dealings | to inspiring our people to achieve their professional aspirations.

Constant emphasis on the clients’ individual needs is one of our core values, which makes us a client-focused rather than a product or service-focused law firm. The lawyers at our Firm have been trained with a multi-specialist approach, and exhibit collegiate attributes and commercial awareness. This helps them go beyond a silo blinkered approach and cater to a broad range of client issues which are often spread across industries and legal topics. At times when markets are dynamic and practices are novel, the versatility of our lawyers enables us to offer our clients calibrated commercial solutions with a degree of creativity and innovation, while keeping the bigger picture in perspective. The resulting astute understanding of the client and its business help us in suggesting a workable solution in alignment with its commercial aspirations and in developing a more profound long-term relationship with them.
