India

A long time and strong presence in India.

Building on the strength of its offices in Asia, located through its own networking of selected Italian, European and local lawyers, FASANO is one of the rare Italian firms to offer:

Expertise in handling legal issues under Indian law, a capacity to handle cases locally

FASANO presence in India was specifically created to respond to the demands of Italian and European companies seeking to or already operating in India, as well as to Indian companies which have already or which seek to develop business relations in Italy, in Europe or other countries in Asia.

Location, availability, quality: focus on our clients’ needs

FASANO focuses on being strategically positioned to serve its clients through an efficient, available network.

FASANO is managed by experienced lawyers, with an acute sense of corporate issues.

As Indian regulations do not as yet permit the independent establishment of foreign law firms in the country, FASANO has an “India Desk” in Milan, a permanent presence in Mumbai and draws on a network of non exclusive privileged partners operating in the strategic locations of India’s economic development. These partners have been selected for their competence, the quality of their lawyers, their rigour and the excellent reputation they have acquired with their European and American clientele. Their lawyers are graduates from top Indian, US and UK universities. They work, according to the needs of each case, under the direction, supervision and responsibility of a FASANO lawyer with locally acquired experience in matters of Indian law.

A solution adapted to a company’s every need

Today, FASANO, drawing on a network of local specialists positioned in the strategic business centres, is in the position to assist European companies in throughout their operations on the Indian market. The firm can also assist Indian companies in their development in Italy or other Asian countries (China, Nepal, Bangladesh, Buthan and Sri Lanka).

FASANO has a multi-disciplinary approach (distribution, investment, M&A, Intellectual Property, environment) enabling it to offer clients targeted solutions.

Continually at the service of its clients, FASANO also plays an important role in the business community: FASANO teams are heavily involved either in Indian business community and institutions in Italy, such as the Indian Chamber of Commerce in Italy, Legal Panel at Indian General Consulate in Milan, either the Indo-Italian Chamber of Commerce.

FASANO can handle cases in French and English and its partners work in the main Indian languages (i.e. Hindi, Marati, Gujarati, Bengali, Tamoul, Punjabi).

FASANO offers its clients services of an international standard and of a quality expected by European clientele.

Indo-Italian academic and economic relationship is supporting by FASANO through Osservatorio India, a Research Unit established by Libera Università Carlo Cattaneo (LIUC) in Castellanza, Varese.
