The Centre for Business and Commercial Law (CBCL) in collaboration with Trilegal is organizing the 7th NLIU-Trilegal Summit on Corporate and Commercial Laws, 2021 virtually on 19th February 2022.
Trilegal explicitly aims to create "an environment in which analytical thinking and result-oriented research are encouraged and rewarded." Abiding by extrapolating the same in their association with NLIU, it would be fair to say that caveats of broadening one’s horizon in terms of their legal education are an expectation one should not shy away from.
Trilegal was founded in 2000 and has nearly 400 lawyers across four offices in India, entailing its practice in multiple fields. The firm has time and again been awarded multiple recognitions and has a wide market presence.
Trilegal is one of India’s top-tier law firms delving into some of the biggest and most complex transactions across sectors. The firm’s working environment, deep sectoral and transactional background, and supreme quality of lawyers enable it to tap into a vast clientele extending to both, domestic and international corporations. The firm’s Corporate and M&A practices have not only allowed them to be ranked consistently as one of the best in India but have also won them multiple accolades over the years.
