Singularity Legal

India

Analysis

Overview

Four-year-old Singularity Legal is a relatively new player in the market with a unique business model. It is billed as a “border agnostic” Asia and Africa-focused law firm specialising in international dispute resolution. Unlike conventional domestic firms that focus on legal services governed by Indian law, Singularity only handles international cross-border disputes and acts based on the various countries’ governing laws and transnational laws. The boutique law firm has developed a strong track record for handling transnational disputes, unearthing frauds, obtaining injunctive reliefs and assisting in debt recovery. It frequently works with litigation funders. Since its inception, the firm has handled claims of over $3 billion in cross-border conflicts across various sectors including energy and resources, construction and infrastructure, international trade, and sports and entertainment. The firm aims to shift its headquarters to Singapore and provide end-to-end transnational dispute services. Partner Prateek Bagaria is the main contact.
