Indian firm Lakshmikumaran opens its doors in Geneva

September 10, 2014 Indian firm Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan has opened its first international office with a new Geneva base. The Geneva office will service India and other developing countries in WTO disputes.

The office will be led by partner Atul Sharma and principal associate Adarsh Ramanujan, who have relocated to Geneva.

Delhi senior partner S Seetharaman said: “Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan has done more than a few WTO disputes in the past. We would like to do more. The basic idea is to [service] developing countries in WTO disputes and give consultancy to developing countries on various issues like capacity building, or a review of their legal system and whether it is line with WTO commitments or not.”

The office will also provide legal services relating to European trade remedy laws - antidumping, subsidies and safeguards, and will advise European clients on Indian corporate, intellectual property and taxation laws.
