The Emerging Landscape of Arbitration in India: 2017 and Beyond…

The country’s economic profile has also witnessed a dramatic shift over a long period from rural –based agricultural production to urban economic activities, and from low-value manufacturing to high-value services. Indeed, the economy is on track to maintain its current growth rate for the rest of this year too. Though economic activity is buoyant, the country still has a long way to go. The Modi government must capitalize on the current economic momentum and use it to accelerate its reform agenda.

India Unleashed: A View from In-House

I would like to congratulate Legally India for having established itself as a progressive, galvanizing force for the Indian legal fraternity, against many odds. This publication represents an incremental step in Legally India’s journey and a timely reminder of India’s economic potential. These days, I am more confident (but not complacent) that India will not simply fritter away its demographic dividend as the narrative shifts from that of a tiger caged to a tiger on the tail of a dragon.

Time to be Bullish to Buy Brazilian Businesses?

On April 12, 2017, the Brazilian Central Bank cut the SELIC benchmark interest rate by 1% as inflation for the twelve months ended March 2017 slowed to 4.57% from a high of 10.71% for the twelve month period ended January 2016.
