Society of Indian Law Firms (SILF) is the apex body of law firms in India. SILF was established in the year 2000 with the aim of protecting, safeguarding and promoting the interests of law firms in India. The Bar Association of different courts in India represent the individual members of the legal profession in India. Law firms have not been historically represented in an organized and streamlined manner. A dire need was felt to form an association of this kind in view of various aspects of the practice of law that are peculiar to law firms in contra-distinction to the role of individual practicing lawyers. The members of SILF include the top most law firms in India. SILF strives to create an atmosphere that will enable Indian law firms to match the technology, manpower skill and the infrastructure that most of the foreign law firms possess. SILF serves as a forum for exchange of ideas and information as also a medium for interaction with the government, the judiciary and the bureaucracy. In a short period of six years, SILF has achieved many laurels amongst them being internationally recognized by IBA (International Bar Association), the UIA (Union International des Advocates) as well as by LAWASIA.<ref>http://www.silf.org.in/aboutus/index1.asp</ref>
