From early on our attorneys chose to emphasize NRI Property, NRI Finance and Corporate Law, NRI Criminal Law and NRI Family law in their law practice. Our attorneys have acted as NRI lawyers in literally hundreds of cases.

To serve NRI clients, our advocates see each major area of law with different perspective – the NRI perspective. We ask ourselves:

  • is it possible to resolve this issue without client being present in India?
  • is it possible to get quick relief from court or any authority on the pretext that one of the parties is NRI?
  • is it possible to get same relief from different court or authority which is favorable inclined towards NRI?
