DWF Annual India Reception 2024

10 July 2024
On 20 June DWF hosted its first ever India client reception in our London office, with over 150 registered attendees and over 40 DWF lawyers from 9 of our offices in 5 countries including the UK, France, Poland, Italy and UAE attending.

We would like extend our gratitude to our exceptional panellists Anuj Chande OBE, Dr. Bijna Kotak Dasani MBE, FRSA, Gautam Sehgal and Sushil Patel who spoke so eloquently about the outlook for the Indian economy over the next 5 years, key sectors of growth, foreign direct investment, links with the Indian diaspora together with other topics. Our panellists shared profound insights about the India market leading to a very engaging discussion.

A special mention goes out to the dedicated team of lawyers from 5 of our UK offices who worked tirelessly behind the scenes over a period of 3 months to bring this event to life. Their unwavering commitment, attention to detail, and creative flair were instrumental in making the India Client Reception an unforgettable evening. From the beautiful decorations to the delicious Indian food, their efforts truly showcased the richness and beauty of Indian culture. We are proud of every one of them for what we have achieved together as a team. 

It was a matter of great pride to reflect on what we have achieved with the DWF India Group, now the largest India group of any law firm located outside India with 95 lawyers from 9 countries, 16 practice areas and 9 sector groups. We have built a strong India Group across the global offices of the firm including lawyers who originate from various different states of India, speak 9 different Indian languages, and understand the richness and depth of Indian culture and markets.
