K&L Gates has been recognized as a “Significant Player” for India-related work in 2020 by India Business Law Journal (IBLJ), advancing from the “Firms to Watch” ranking it held for the last three years.
IBLJ’s 2020 rankings cite K&L Gates’ history of representing international clients seeking a footprint in India and ambitious Indian entrepreneurs with a global vision, as well as the firm’s 2019 combination with Straits Law Practice in Singapore, which deepened the firm’s India client base. Work highlights in this year’s rankings include the firm’s representation of SpiceJet in its first transaction with Chorus Aviation Capital, a US$120 million deal involving the sale and leaseback of six aircraft, and of Accelalpha in its recapitalization by Century Park Capital Partners.
Now in its 14th year, IBLJ’s rankings are based on extensive research conducted by seasoned researchers into the type and complexity of India-related work which international law firms have undertaken over the last 12 months. It is also based on feedback from interviews with India-focused corporate counsel around the world, as well as with partners at both Indian and international law firms.
The rankings are featured in IBLJ’s 2020 Report, “A cut above the rest”. To learn more about K&L Gates’ India practice, please visit our website.
