McCarter's India practice has recently undergone an expansion, adding new attorneys with ties to the region. Our attorneys have been counsel to U.S. architectural firms, developers, and construction firms on real estate development projects in India, with regard to ongoing project contracts, and joint ventures with Indian firms in this sector. Having significant experience with outsourcing firms in the BPO, IT development and life sciences sector, the firm has evolved to include manufacturing and other service industry clients as well as energy and clean tech with both private and governmental sources of work. McCarter now represents US companies with facilities in India, and those doing business with Indian firms, and we have a growing portfolio of clients based in India, that now depend on McCarter for guidance both within the US and abroad for mergers and acquisitions, corporate transactions including licensing, and supply agreements, as well as issues such as export controls, government contracts, and executive compensation and immigration.
McCarter's experience in India includes many corporate transactions, including stock and asset purchase agreements, customer and supplier agreements, licensing agreements, distribution and franchise agreements, general contract law advice and negotiation. The firm is also skilled in corporate formation and structuring, securities filings for public companies, financing and corporate finance documents including loan and credit agreements. McCarter's attorneys have welcomed Indian companies to the US, performing company formations, taking into consideration tax and other structuring questions, and providing general corporate law advice. Members of the India Practice Group travel to India frequently, preferring to visit with the firm's extensive contacts face to face.
