Veritas Legal has witnessed a steady expansion of its white-collar crime practice under practice heads Abhijit Joshi and Rahul Dwarkadas. Dispute resolution and investigation engagements are particularly active, notably regarding allegations of funds siphoning, regulatory compliance disputes (including in regards to minimum wage) and breaches of confidential and price-sensitive information. Representation before the CBI and police hearings are given, and a comprehensive forensic and legal audit offering is also provided. Stand-out clients include international auditors and financial services companies.
Veritas Legal‘s practice handles the drafting of wills and trusts, succession planning and tax structuring. Abhijit Joshi has a strong track record of advising business houses and promoter families on wealth and estate planning including setting up and administering trusts. Kunal Doshi often represents HNW individuals in relation to business succession structures, including wills and trust deeds.
Veritas Legal has an expanding roster of private equity investors, including high-profile global players, for which department heads Abhijit Joshi and Nandish Vyas recently assisted with private equity investments in the cosmetics, food and drink and FMCG sectors. The practice also advises company promoters on primary investments and funding rounds across a broad range of sectors including retail cybersecurity and fashion.
Corporate law, M&A transactions and private equity investments are all core practice areas for Veritas Legal, which fields a team of lawyers with sectoral expertise across life sciences, e-commerce and real estate. The team is adept at handling matters which start as corporate transactions and evolve into litigation. Abhijit Joshi, who is regularly engaged in acquisitions, divestments and joint ventures, oversees the department. The service offering was recently strengthened by the arrival of Srabonee Roy from Samvad Partners; Roy’s areas of expertise include M&A, private equity and corporate advisory.
