Lawyers competent to handle Intl firms: Bar Assn president
New Delhi, Nov 4 (UNI) Newly-elected president of the Delhi Bar Association K C Mittal said lawyers in India are competent enough to argue cases in the international arena.
With multinational companies coming to India for establishing their business, law firms here are gearing up to face the challenge.
''We are all set to handle the cases of foreign companies,'' he added.
''Right from the inception of the company getting the legal sanction to start and draft their contracts, we look after all their cases, including the Intellectual Property Rights cases,'' Mr Mittal said yesterday.
After being elected the president of the prestigious Delhi Bar Association, Mr Mittal had set a target to acquire three acres of land near the Delhi High Court premises to construct chambers and consultation rooms for women and young lawyers, who do not have space to run their practice.
The newly-elected president said having a space crunch in the capital, they were considering the prospect of having a multi-level parking system outside the High Court.
More than 50 thousand lawyers are practising in the Delhi courts and with litigation increasing every day, more infrastructure was required, Mr Mittal said. ''We aim at building good Bar and bench relations that should be in accordance with spirituality and cordiality,'' he added.
