Guangzhou-headquartered Guangda Law Firm has formed a non-exclusive partnership with Delhi-based Singh & Associates, marking the first such alliance between a Chinese and an Indian law firm.
With the aim of tapping into the growing number of Sino-Indian cross border transactions, the two firms have added an Indian law advisory desk to Guangda’s Beijing office, headed by partner Dilip Niranjan, a corporate expert specialising in setting up and structuring international outbound investment from India.
Niranjan’s team is expected to be reinforced by a series of hires, including one more partner and five associates. Harsimran Singh, the principal associate at Singh, will also relocate to Beijing.
The firms are planning to launch another joint desk at Guangda’s office in Shanghai in the near future.
