Trilegal climbs up in several rankings this year, most notably into the ‘Outstanding’ bands for banking and finance, competition, dispute resolution and investment funds. It is quickly becoming a preferred choice for heavyweight clients, an alternative to the famous family firms that inhabit the top echelon of legal services providers. Its TMT practice continues to gain traction as a market leader, and its private equity and investment funds offering is growing from strength to strength. The firm’s four-year-old asset management and fund formation practice has rapidly risen to be a power player, with one peer noting: “Trilegal has collected some of the top funds lawyers in the country. It is definitely a top-tier practice.” The dispute resolution team, led by Shankh Sengupta, has proven its worth with an elite group of litigators acting in high stakes matters for premier clients.
