ROLE OF THE GOVERNMENT
Mr. Srivastav feels, the role of the government impacts the sector because they keep changing the legal scenario, government policies, and business policies. Big Firm set up Offices in India and many Law Firms merge with larger Law Firms and the Legal Profession will be diversified. The entire legal scenario is up for a change if the Government decides to open doors for foreign lawyers, in that event, Lawyers cannot advertise, but if they are allowed to, the scenario will be like it is in other Countries, presently work for Lawyers in India is restricted.
Mr. Srivastav further added, “It is all set to change, of course in its own sweet time, but it will. Lawyers will be allowed to carry on all work as International Firms are presently carrying out . The companies in the future will prefer tie-ups with foreign brands. there will be several large Law Firms with Offices all over the World.
The firm is looking towards a positive and bright future, moving in sync with the changing trends of the legal scenario, there are expansion plans on the cards with the next generation taking over the firm and incorporating fresh and innovative ideas into the picture. At present Litigation, Arbitration and IPR has been the prime focus of the Firm, but with India growing and developing each day, the firm is looking to explore the fields of M&A Foreign collaboration, Joint Ventures, Foreign Investment and _____
In India there is no restriction for any Lawyer to take up any Matter, whereas in other Country Lawyers, can only take up Matters in which he specializes and has to specifically declare to the Client that he is or not an expert on the particular subject failure to do so can lead to claims that is why Law Firms require Indemnity Insurance.Presently are not included in the definition of Consumers and the Client canot make claims against the Lawyer for deficiency in services but it is a matter of time that the scenario will change and legal services will also be included in the services and dissatisfied Clients can make claims for deficiency in legal services.
Mr. Srivastav wraps up with. Its pointless to run after the need to understand the Law First. The Knowledge is what will help them to grow, a lot of people couldn’t make it too far in this industry because their passion wasn’t backed with hard work. Hardwork is important, knowledge is important and only then you will achieve what you seek.
