In India, our collaboration with the Mumbai-based India Law Alliance (ILA) enables us to provide the advice our clients in the UK-Indian corridor need. The depth and breadth of our advice includes representation of clients in the lower courts right up to the Apex Court, and managing inbound Indian investments.

Our work in India

Our lawyers and those in the ILA share experience and skills which benefit the clients of both firms, enabling us to provide comprehensive advice on transactions across both jurisdictions – meaning clients enjoy the same level of service in their Indian business as they do in the UK.

Our offering to clients doing business in India

Counterparty due diligence

This involves investigation into a company you might wish to work with. It covers legal, commercial, and sometimes political, investigation into the entity, and usually some investigation into the individual behind that entity.

Contract acclimatisation

We take a contract that you are comfortable with, for example a supply contract or a distribution contract, and make sure it works in a foreign country. As a minimum, we check that the dispute resolution and execution blocks work, and consider any clauses that might be inapplicable – or perhaps even illegal – to enforce in that country.

Translation and naming

This is often part of contract acclimatisation but is also a standalone service. When it comes to the law, word-for-word language translation simply isn’t good enough. Because we translate with context, we ensure that the translation is sensitive to the specific legal meanings of words, and also that an appropriate language clause is inserted into the contract where necessary.


We make sure your operations are being conducted in accordance with local requirements and highlight any risks or issues you might not have known to ask about.

Hear what our clients say about us

HCR has become our go-to law firm for TV and media work. We recently needed a production arrangement with a multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate. We had issues across the UK and EU; the arrangements are complicated but Nicolas Groffman and Raj Pahuja found ways to simplify the process and then isolate key issues for negotiation. Their technical knowledge and diligence enabled them to discuss practical issues with the television production teams on equal terms, which speeded up the project. They are brilliant.


Go-to law firm for TV and media work

The relationship with us goes back a long way, and the service HCR provides in the more ‘traditional’ areas such as employment and education remains first-rate. But what has been especially pleasing is the way that, as our ambitions and vision have broadened, so too has HCR’s ability to support us on our journey. Of course I’m thinking in particular about our international plans and discussions – it’s no exaggeration to say that we couldn’t have come as far as we have without your tremendous support, expertise and sage advice. Thanks.


Client An Independent School

Navigating the complexities of B2B relationships requires a lawyer who truly understands the intricacies involved. That’s exactly what I found in Nicolas Groffman. His exceptional skills in contract drafting, negotiation, and cross-border legal advice surpassed my expectations. With meticulous attention to detail and effective communication, he’s the go-to lawyer for any business seeking expert legal advice.
