Partner Madhu Gadodia said, “Most of our clients are Bollywood production houses, production studios, directors, actors and distributors. We have clients who are involved in every stage of cinema. We also have television producers, television channels, event management companies and brand endorsement companies as our clients. Basically,it’s the whole of media and entertainment umbrella. Most of these clients are located in Andheri. The idea of starting the office in Andheri is to be in the heart of the suburb. There is no law firm of this calibre in the area. It is for the better accessibility for the clients. It will be logistically very convenient for clients and it will be very cost efficient”. Gadodia added, “We are planning to start the office from July 1, 2011. The focus will be on media and entertainment. At the same time we will also be a full service firm with Nariman point office to support us”.
