Our extensive knowledge of aviation law combined with strong relationships, deep insights, and a rigorous approach gives our clients a distinct advantage.

Indian Civil Aviation - An Unprecedented Opportunity

Practice Areas


Clients include governments, banks, airlines, funds, leasing companies, engine manufacturers, and multinational corporations across a range of industries.


Aviation in India is ready for take-off.

With the largest population in the world, we have only 760 civilian aircraft, compared to 3500 in China, which has a headcount that is similar to ours.

And you may be aware that we still have important cities that are not yet on the air map.

All of that describes the potential of the aviation sector.

From lessors and banks to aviation sector service providers, potential stakeholders have been doing the rounds… intently assessing the scope of their participation.

They seek reassurance about various factors… The lack of infrastructure, crew, and, of course, equipment. In the larger picture, they seek sound legal expertise even before they decide to commit to this opportunity.

That’s where we come in. Such delegations have become more frequent in the recent past. And they have been seeking meetings with us
