Dear Mr.Bharat Pindoria,

Please be in more details about  how you intend to enter the Indian Legal Scenario, and what would be the role.


Bharat Pindoria (Director)     13 October 2011

Dear Mr Hazra

We do not intend to enter the legal market in India.

The issue is that we have NRI clients that require services of Indian lawyers.   For example, a father living in London wishes to transfer his property in Punjab or Gujarat to his children.  He does not want to come to India for this purpose but requires a lawyer to prepare the documentation and send it to us for execution in London.  Once signed we will send back to the Indian lawyer to complete the formalities.

Similarly they want Indian Wills drafted in respect of their Indian assets which are mainly real property and bank accounts.

On the otherhand, we get many enquiries from Indian wanting to set up offshore bank accounts or companies for legitimate tax avoidance purpose.  We can even help them purchase properties in the UK using the offshore vehicles.

Recently, we act for families (mainly women) who want to divorce their NRI husband because he is cheat or a fraud.  In the UK if one party resides in the country then the Indian spouse can commence divorce proceedings without coming to the UK or attending court in the UK.It takes a couple of months and couple can be divorced discreetly.

We can also help in immigration matters

So there many cross selling of services that can take place between us and reputable lawyers in India.

Kind regards

Dear Mr.Bharat Pindoria,

If my understanding is correct you send the details of the client and the requirement as to the documents to be executed by him at London to be finally effective at India Courts for its final legal enforcement here at India.

Suppose for example  your client requires a Will for his property at India, we prepare the draft will for the execution and return for the further registration, but how would be the fees for services of the Advocate dealing at India be settled.

How would the work be accepted from Indian legal professionals.

Mr Hazra

Thank you for your reply.

Once we agreed the legal fees with our Indian counterpart, we would request the UK client deposits the fees into our UK client bank account. Once we confirmation of cleared funds we would ask the Indian lawyers to proceed.

On completion, we would settle the Indian lawyers invoices from Pindoria Solicitors Indian rupee bank account with Bank of Baroda Ahmadabad.

We would instruct Indian lawyers until and unless we are fully in funds from our client.
