Good show Trilegal. Clearly picking up Ravindra is paying off well given the number of deals he closes.

sounds right, before this Trilegal was not really considered a corp transactional firm. Mostly projects. At least with Ravindra there and a few other good corp partners, this firm can try rising up.

Trilegal can never compete with the likes of AZB, SCAM or Khaitan. There is no long term thinking and they lack the depth needed to penetrate the market. They will need more partners like Ravindra to be able to make its presence felt in a more significant manner. Currently, I see them involved in very few M&A and PE deals (although there may be some big ones).

agreed, ofcourse they cant compete with the 2 Chand's or AZB KCO, or even a firm like JSA when it comes to corporate transactional work. Also, they are mostly doing PE/funding documentation - investment deals, not really big on mergers or acquisitions.
