Indian lawyers oppose move to allow foreign law firms in India

December 27, 2007 The UK-based Indian lawyers are up in arms against a reported move by the Indian government to allow foreign law firms to practice in the country without insisting on a reciprocal arrangement in Britain. The British Indian Lawyers Association has shot off a letter to the Union Law Minister, Hansraj Bharadwaj, suggesting that foreign firms should be allowed to practice in India or to render legal assistance to multinational companies "only if there is a reciprocal arrangement whereby the Indian lawyers are allowed to practice in the UK."
