Appleby has a dedicated India-focused team based out of its Mauritius office, which attracts veteran and fledgling investors alike who are interested in India. The report highlights the office’s understanding of key offshore legal, regulatory and commercial environments, which has earned it roles on a slew of high-profile deals including Bharti Airtel’s perpetual bond issue through its subsidiary Network i2i to raise funds worth up to US$250 million.
In the report, Seher Ali, General Manager of Legal at Bharti Enterprises, praises Malcolm Moller, Group Managing Partner, and Farzanah Nawool, Senior Associate, for being professional, effective and likeable.
“I have worked with their team on several transactions and each time I have been very pleased with their level of communication and responsiveness,” Ali said.
Rajiv Gupta, Partner at Latham & Watkins, said, “Appleby is by far the most popular law firm for Mauritius advice. We see them on almost all our equity and debt deals that require Mauritius law advice.”
Malcolm Moller responded to the recognition, giving credit to the skill and dedication of his colleagues.
“Recognitions like this one are a testament to our expertise and experience with India-related matters, as well as the capabilities and innovation of our teams,” he said.
