India has the third largest armed forces in the world and is one of the largest importers of conventional defence equipment. 

The opening of the defence sector for private sector participation will help foreign original equipment manufacturers  enter into strategic partnerships with Indian companies and leverage the domestic market as well as aim at global markets. Besides helping in building domestic capabilities, this will also bolster exports in the long term.    

The defence industry which deals in complex, very high-value products is vital to the security of our country. The defence industry therefore demands lawyers to be able to work on the most valuable and complex competitive processes, contracts and disputes.

We advise domestic manufacturers, foreign OEM vendors, O&M contractors etc on the defence procurement law, offset policies, regulatory aspects, structuring of transactions, liability issues, joint ventures etc. We deploy deep understanding of defence contracts and will represent you in defence industry matters, with confidence grounded in real industry knowledge.
