BANKING, FINANCE SERVICES & INSURANCE

Our expertise in the banking sector ranges from recovery actions for banks and financial institutions to legal management, restructuring and reorganization of banking assets and NPAs under the ambit and purview of all extant laws of the country including policies pertaining to restructuring of non-performing assets including constitution and formation of JLFs. In the process, we have acquired an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the banking sector, the markets and their legal and regulatory frameworks. The Firm’s proficiency in the insurance sector extends to regular coordination with the sector regulator, IRDA, in matters of licenses and major legal compliances for and on behalf of leading insurance companies. We have also lent assistance to companies in matters of allegations of bid-rigging against large scale insurance entities in tender matters floated by state / central governments pursuant to a pre-defined policy framework and have, in this respect, engaged with the sector regulators in competition law. Apart from lending assistance in formulation and finalization of insurance policies, we have also regularly, time and again, engaged ourselves in defending allegations of inordinate policy terms and conditions in insurance policies and group action third party claims before various legal fora, including before the Apex Court of India. We have closely engaged ourselves in recent issues in the sector, including the ones pertaining to validity of discharge vouchers and the challenges posed pursuant to state government / central government policies in this regard.
