Final arguments set to begin on entry of foreign law firms into India

February 29, 2008 New Delhi: The case challenging the entry of foreign law firms into the country is a step closer to resolution with the Mumbai High Court poised to begin hearing final arguments on it over the next two days. The petition was filed in 1995 by Lawyers Collective, a legal services provider that works in areas of public interest, challenging the practice of three foreign firms, United States’ White and Case Llp. and Chadbourne and Parker Llp. and UK’s Ashurst Morris Crisp Llp. in India after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) granted them licences to open up liason offices in the country.
