Airport

Providing legal support for Airport businesses to take-off.

Building airport infrastructure to sustain the accreting passenger traffic and surge in the global business activities has lately become a priority for the Government.

INFRASTRUCTURE & ENERGY

Dynamic, diverse and sophisticated legal solutions to address esoteric challenges in the Infrastructure domain.

Given that Infrastructure is the key stimulator for the growth of the Indian Economy and is highly capital-intensive in nature, the majority of the infrastructure projects are implemented in India through the PPP mode (Public-Private Partnership). This requires private participants (long-term Investors, consultants, Developers, EPC contractors and other stakeholders, etc.) to collaborate with the respective Governments and with each other in ways that insulate them from various risks. On the other hand, government agencies ensure that the Concession, Development, Operation and Maintenance agreements drawn up are bankable,
implementable and commercially viable.

We assist both government agencies and private sector players in evaluating their developmental/legal risks and ensuring that the underlying documentation is water-tight and addresses the stakeholders. We also advise private developers/stakeholders in preparing their bid responses as well as in creating the documentation necessary to raise capital (whether equity or debt financing). In the event of litigation (including arbitration), our team draws on experts in corporate, commercial, project finance and other domains as necessary to work with our litigation experts to protect our clients’ interests.

RERA

Preserving the legal interests of homebuyers and developers.

The Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 (‘RER Act’) is a breakthrough in the regulation and promotion of the real estate sector and has brought in accountability, transparency, and organization, where the sector was earlier burdened with archaic approaches and partisan legislations. For instance, the statutory requirement of depositing the customer collection in separate RERA account, restriction on the funds collected to be used only for a specific project and making the promoter accountable for the commitments, have instilled confidence in home buyers.

However, this has also resulted in enhanced compliance obligations for developers and the industry is reeling under the implementation challenges of the Act. Further, although the RER Act is a central legislation, each state in India has its own rules and regulations governing the implementation of RER Act.

We advise all stakeholders on a real estate project including, promoters, investors, retail lenders and homebuyers. Having our offices in multiple locations gives us an edge in understanding the rules and regulations applicable to a specific State. Our association with various chambers of commerce, industrial bodies, consumer welfare associations have helped us in understanding the challenges faced by the real estate industry, which allows us to give solution-based advice to our clients.

Renewable Energy

Expert legal advice on the development, implementation, and commercialisation of renewable energy.

Renewable energy projects are generally large scale and are built on huge parcels of land. Therefore, real estate plays a very significant role in the industry as in the initial stages, land suitability assessment, identification and acquisition, compliance with land laws, environmental clearances, due diligence and documentation, are key requirements for a project to take off. Another point of integration among the two sectors is the increasing renewable energy solutions utilized in the real estate sector to meet its power supply.

We work on both the aspects i.e. supporting renewable energy projects with their land related due diligence, documentation and compliances, as well as assisting real estate developers in meeting their energy requirement in a socially responsible and cost effective manner, through the utilization of both on-site and off-site renewable energy solutions.

Industrial Unit, Park, SEZ & IT Park

Helping industrial enclaves traverse the huge stack of regulatory compliances.

To receive preferential treatment and incentive offered by the government, industrial enclaves are required to traverse the huge stack of regulatory conditions and observe higher standards of compliance. The sector has seen significant shortfall and suffers from a range of issues such as multiplicity of applicable policies, restriction on the utilization of land apart from defined purpose, delays in environmental clearances, weak enforcement mechanism, possible leakages and formalization of de-notification process to name a few. There are also state specific land laws applicable to these enclaves which expose them to further
uncertainty.

We handhold entities in setting up industrial enclaves and meet legal concerns in operations by supporting them in entry level strategy planning, due diligence, transaction compliance, documentations etc.

Environment

Legal advice that ensures the management of natural resources while achieving commercial goals.

Environmental degradation today calls for strict implementation of laws to minimize the negative effects of the loss of natural resources. Central and State governments continue to put in place legislations with the specific aim of slowing down environmental damage and reversing it where possible. Often, such regulations are obligated under multilateral agreements. Businesses too are investing resources on identifying ways to reduce their carbon footprints. Extra-governmental bodies such as NGOs and special interest groups are becoming ever more vigilant in matters related to the environment.

We provide expert advice on the diligent steps to be taken from the environmental compliances’ perspective, pre & post-development of the project. Whilst most multi-national companies have strong internal policies on environment diligences, which is derived from their place of origin, there is a gap to bridge based on the land laws of India, which is perfected by our team of experts.

Data Center, Warehousing & Logistics

Skilled at enabling digital commercial environment.
With e-commerce and online shopping taking over a major portion of the retail market, the demand for warehouse and logistics has been up-scale since the last couple of years. The growing demand and high investments being made in this sector, calls for diligent and expert advice to secure the interest of the promoters, investors and occupiers.

Similarly, Data Center is now a fast-evolving sector due to the rapidly growing digitalisation spree. The legal challenges in the establishment and operation of data centres range from dealing with the infrastructure requirements, physical and electronic security, environmental and safety compliances, data protection, etc. The availability of minimal policies makes its vulnerable and requires expert advice to provide a holistic approach.

We cater to the sector specific requirement to ensure that the project remains compliant through the development phase and the leasing life cycle. We have exclusively developed a tracking system to ensure necessary legal compliances are met and periodic reminders are sent to the promoter as a follow up measure.

Modifying the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill to Deal with Rising Privacy Concerns

The European Region was able to circumvent the imposition of data sharing norms by Watsapp due to its updated Data Privacy Laws that successfully provide users with protection from such policies. Our extant laws are glaringly inadequate and the proposed draft, as well as the delay in the passage, of the Personal Data Protection Bill (PDP Bill), is posing a serious threat to our online privacy and security.
