Aseem Chawla has merged his firm ASC Legal with Phoenix Legal to head the tax practice at Phoenix.

Chawla’s firm ASC Legal focused on direct and indirect tax advisory and litigation work, private client and cross border regulatory and compliance advisory services.

Chawla, a tax specialist, has nearly two decades of experience. On his decision to merge with Phoenix, Chawla commented

“For all of us, it is a momentous occasion, it is a privilege to be a part of one of the most dynamic and entrepreneurial driven law practices of the country. This would provide a full range of niche legal services to the clientele and further deepens its service capabilities.”

Chawla resigned from Amarchand Mangaldas in 2012, after which he had set up a law firm called MPC Legal along with two other Partners Dipankar Vig and NV Raman. Later, he started his firm, ASC Legal.

Phoenix co-founding partner Manjula Chawla commented,

“This development significantly broadens and deepens our tax practice. Consistent with our philosophy of providing top quality services to our clients, this step is also relevant in the context of the continued efforts of the Government of India to ease the doing of business in India and in particular, the shift to fiscal neutrality through the imminent GST regime.”
