Bar & Bench

The erstwhile Amarchand Mangaldas Suresh A. Shroff has been ranked as India’s only law firm in the Acritas Asia-Pacific Law Firm Brand Index 2015. The firm, which split into two separate entities this year, is sixth on a table of the top 20 law firms rated by UK-based legal market research organisation, Acritas.

The brand index was compiled through responses of 363 senior general counsel in Asia Pacific organizations with annual revenues over 50 million USD. They were asked about their awareness of and favourability towards law firms, their consideration of firms for top-level litigation and major M&A, multi-jurisdictional litigation and deals, as well as their use of firms for high value work.

A further 315 senior in-house counsel from ‘elite’ organizations outside the region were asked which firms they used for their legal needs in any of seven key jurisdictions within Asia Pacific.

Baker & Mckenzie tops the list, followed by King & Wood Mallesons and Herbert Smith Freehills. Other firms in the top ten include Ashurst, Clifford Chance and Allen & Overy.
