The Department for Constitutional Affairs (DCA) began its visit to India today (26 April) to discuss the liberalisation of its legal market.
Constitutional Affairs Minister Baroness Catherine Ashton will meet the trade and justice ministers in New Delhi and will visit state bar councils in Chandigarh, Bangalore and Chennai.
Ashton commented: "We’re seeking better access to global markets for our lawyers to enable them to provide services to international business and investors in any country where there’s demand for them."
Firms such as Clifford Chance and Linklaters have been gearing up for when regulations prohibiting foreign law firms from practising in India are relaxed.
The DCA will be discussing the developments of international business services with the Indian government and members of the legal profession.
The Lawyer recently reported (12 March) on the DCA's prediction that the Indian market will open up and allow foreign firms to set up in a year’s time.
Ashton said: "If international business is to expand, to everyone's benefit, including India's, businesses must be confident of their ability to source high-quality professional services wherever in the world they seek to operate."
