RSG India[edit]

RSG India writes about the firm: "A highly respected and full service law firm which manages to combine its history with a young dynamic culture. Although it is not as widely known as some of its peers, in testament to the firm's credibility, it topped Mergermarket's Indian deals tables for 2009. While the younger generation of Desai's and Diwanji's were recommended to RSG, this is not a traditional family firm."

According to the RSG India rankings for 2011 the firm is the eight best firm in the country. <ref> |RSG India rankings </ref>
