“Luthra and Luthra Law Offices India have been the Indian law firm of choice for the Life Healthcare Group since 2011.
The Life Healthcare Group is a fully diversified healthcare company listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange with a market cap of circa USD 2.8 billion. Given its active presence in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Poland, Italy, Germany and Spain, I have, in my capacity as Group Head of Legal, engaged closely with some of the top law firms in Europe and Africa, such as Allen & Overy, Linklaters and Clifford Chance. Given my experience with Luthra and Luthra Law Offices India, who have represented the Group across multiple M&A transactions, there is no doubt in my mind that Luthra and Luthra Law Offices India offers professional services that are not only world class but also comfortably match and, in many respects, surpass the level of professional services offered by these magic circle firms.
Under the visionary leadership of Mr. Rajiv Luthra, who is able to offer pioneering insights to complex legal problems, Luthra and Luthra Law Offices India remains the obvious first choice of law firm for the Group in the Indian market.
Most recently, Luthra and Luthra Law Offices India, advised the Group in relation to the strategic disposal of its interests in Max Healthcare for an amount of circa USD 280 million, culminating in the successful execution of an SPA. Their team of best of class lawyers were able to, in the face of tough resistance from a seasoned private equity investor and its legal advisors, negotiate an SPA that expertly serves the interests of the Group. These negotiations touched on numerous complex and nuanced legal issues and it is only as a result of the visionary insights provided by the team that we were able to break through a number of deadlock situations and neutralise some real deal breakers in order get this transaction over the line.
Without hesitation, I would recommend Luthra and Luthra Law Offices India to any large corporate as my absolute law firm of choice for business in India as a direct result, not only of its technical astuteness in all matters legal, but equally as result of its visionary approach to business which results in the creation of refined legal solutions to nuanced and complex legal problems.”
