India Business Law Journal has named Latham & Watkins to its 2012 Top 10 list of leading foreign law firms. The survey “draws on an analysis of over 600 law firms from every continent that have recorded India-related transactions or cases over the past year.” The research includes feedback from corporate counsel and Indian law firms, among other sources.
“Latham & Watkins has sharpened its focus on India, gaining a list of high-profile clients, especially on debt and equity capital market deals,” said India Business Law Journal. The magazine cites Latham’s work on high profile mandates including: advising Vedanta on the company’s US$1.65 billion bond offering; representing the investment banks on a Rule 144A/Regulation S qualified institutional placement of shares by Apollo Hospitals; and a number of resource-related transactions including acting for Science Applications International Corporation on the sale of its oil and gas consulting division to Wipro and advising Sinar Mas Group on the acquisition by GMR Infrastructure Investments of a 30% shareholding in Golden Energy Mines.
