Lakshmikumaran hopes to push into Bangalore corporate space from tax, IP with new WTC office

Tax and corporate work: worlds apart or related?
Tax and corporate work: worlds apart or related?
Exclusive: Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan (LKS) moved to a new 15,000 square feet Bangalore office in the World Trade Centre (WTC) from its Anand Rao Circle office on Friday (8 June).

Executive partner Shivadass G, who heads the 30-lawyers strong Bangalore office, said that the firm was facing space constraints in the old 5,000 square feet office and that the new office also boasted better in-house facilities, including audio-and video-conferencing rooms and projectors.

While until now Bangalore had primarily dealt with tax and intellectual property work, the firm was planning to expand to become a corporate practice in Bangalore, said Shivadass.

He said: “Software companies, any of the big multinational companies – they felt that the work done by the team on taxes was so good that they will also like us to expand to other areas as well.

“We want it to be essentially a one stop solution.”

The new fourth floor in Bangalore’s WTC is the firm’s third new office space in the last six months.

On 12 December 2011, the firm had set up an office in Pune, while on 12 March 2012 it launched a second office in Delhi.

The firm has eight offices in seven cities, with 250 lawyers.
