Addleshaw Goddard has moved quickly to secure non-exclusive relationships with two Indian firms following The Lawyer’s story (1 December 2008) revealing that the firm was developing an Indian referral network.
Addleshaws ;is ;now working with Amarchand & Mangaldas & Suresh A Shroff & Co and AZB & Partners. The firm has beaten the target set by managing partner Mark Jones to have a roster in place by summer 2009. The UK firm has already seconded a UK-based lawyer to AZB for a period of four months.
The relationships have been established by senior partner Paul Lee, chief operating officer Peter Smith and partners Stephen Houston and Claire Northcote. The firm has been advised by consultant David Birch, who is also helping Amarchand to internationalise its practice.
It is understood that Addleshaws will also be looking at opportunities with other Indian firms.
