Bird & Bird's excellent standing in the Indian market was highlighted when it recently won Best International Law Firm of the Year at the IDEX Legal Awards ceremony held in Mumbai in March 2014.
With these awards IDEX, the organisation that monitors the legal profession in India and publishes various legal directories, aims to acknowledge and celebrate excellence amongst in-house counsels and lawyers across India.
The jury was impressed by Bird & Bird's large base of Indian clients, and the trust they place in the firm's ability to handle crucial matters in India, noting that: "Bird & Bird is a well-known international law firm that has demonstrated high level of interest and involvement in legal matters in India on behalf of its clients, both international and Indian. The jury was extremely impressed with this firm’s large base of Indian clients reflecting the trust the wide variety of the clients repose in this firm for handling their most crucial matters and transactions in a difficult jurisdiction. Based on its submission, Bird & Bird clearly has earned the respect of its clients on the strength of the deep understanding of the Indian market and it is clear that existing and potential clients are drawn to the firm because of such strengths. This is further reflected in the variety of complex transactions that the firm has advised on and has driven here. We also felt that its workshops, training programmes and articles of publication afforded it a distinctive edge in comparison with its competitors in this category."
