Protecting the legal interests of businesses functioning in the automotive industry.


A maturing automotive market in India means more choice for customers.
Globalization is prompting the entities operating in the sector to consolidate, upgrade technology, enhance product range, enter new markets and cut costs. Moreover, an emerging trend in partnerships and joint ventures between traditional automotive and technology companies is observed. With advanced technology and sustainability driving this sector, the legislative landscape has transformed to ensure accountability and higher levels of discernible value to customers.

All this has a bearing on a company’s policies, supply chain agreements, IPR protection strategies, financing programs, strategic alliances etc. To succeed in the face of greater competitive intensity and stricter regulatory environment, the entire ecosystem, comprising automotive manufacturers, their suppliers, dealers and service centers need to indulge in strategic planning, regular compliance monitoring and implementing protections.

We have assisted auto majors on corporate & commercial matters, tax, corporate governance, IPR, litigation etc. If you are looking to establish operations in India, we can also advise you on FDI regulations and help you obtain various statutory approvals.


Our service offerings, inter alia, include:
  • Advisory and assistance in legal and compliance-related matters.
  • Advisory on labour laws, trade laws, intellectual property laws, international laws, environmental issues, organizational issues, investment issues, etc.
  • Contract negotiations and drafting considering challenges pertaining to data privacy, security, IP protection, limitation of liability etc.
  • Assistance with respect to regulatory compliance, audit and inspection by authorities.
  • Facilitating investment through assistance with the entire fund cycle, from the establishment of investment vehicles and constant regulatory compliance to the winding-up process.
  • Comprehensive assistance with dispute resolution through litigation or alternative routes.
