Trilegal is one of India’s top tier law firms with offices in Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad. It was set up by four NLSIU graduates with the aim of breaking the glass ceiling of family firms and establishing a firm built solely on the ethos of merit and professionalism. Trilegal has recently become the first Indian law firm to have elected managing partners, furthering their pursuit to create a truly meritocratic law firm.
The firm has been involved in several complex and high-value transactions, and its client roster includes many of the world’s leading corporations, funds, banks and financial institutions. Trilegal advised Vodafone in its multi-million acquisition of a 67% stake in Hutchison Essar Ltd., a leading Indian telecom company. The firm also advised Standard Chartered as lead arranger of a $7.5bn acquisition facility and a $2bn bridge facility for Bharti Airtel’s acquisition of Zain’s African telecom business. The firm is known to provide its clients with seamless, efficient and integrated service across a broad spectrum of practice areas including Corporate M&A, Private Equity and Venture Capital, Energy and Infrastructure, and Banking and Finance. Trilegal has, over the years, become the exemplar of a modern, progressive and equitable new generation of Indian law firms.
In the year 2015, Trilegal and the National Law School of India University joined forces to host the National Law School – Trilegal International Arbitration Moot. For the past two years, this collaboration has been extremely successful and has harbingered the commencement of a new phase in the growth of this moot.
