Fox & Mandal, India’s iconic law firm with a 125-year heritage, has announced the expansion of its footprint at NCT Delhi. The firm collaborated with BlackRobe Chambers in New Delhi, an existing full-service law firm headed by Kunal Vajani, as part of this expansion. BlackRobe Chambers will integrate with F&M to facilitate its smooth transition and expand its presence in North India.
The Delhi office is being set up in the firm’s building at Defense Colony as a “multidisciplinary full-service legal practice” that would pride itself on onboarding, nurturing and promoting the best legal talent to meet the needs of clients. The Firm’s New Delhi office will be headed by Kunal Vajani as the Firm’s Of Counsel. Kunal will also continue to run his law practice at BlackRobe Chambers.
“We are extremely excited to start this adventure! We wish to combine the ethics and seriousness of a formidable practice for more than a century and a quarter now, with cutting-edge technology and legal expertise that evolves with the evolution of the commercial landscape. This unique merger would mark the beginning of other such ventures in the days to come.”, said Debanjan Mandal, Partner, F&M.
“I am indeed proud and happy to see the BRC Delhi team integrating F&M. Together, Debanjan and I hope to establish a practice that will not only enhance the overall client service capabilities for F&M, but also open up a new wide range of direct access to BRC Delhi’s counsel to a variety of legal work in various sectors.” – said Kunal Vajani, Of Counsel – F&M & Head of Chambers – BRC. Kunal added: “Debanjan has a progressive view of growing the business and the fact that the business has completely transformed from a family owned and operated entity to a fully professional organization is a testament to this. Today, only 4 of the 18 partners belong to the founding family and our collaboration is based on our commitment to attracting the best talent to serve the client to the best of its ability as a fully professionally managed law firm.“East India’s Largest Law Firm Fox & Mandal Collaborates with Blackrobe Chambers; Expands to National Capital Territory of Delhi
Speaking on uniqueness and distinctiveness, Debanjan added: “Our Firm stands out for its incorporation in 1896 and its continuity for 125 years now. Last month, the firm’s partners successfully completed an internal restructuring exercise following which all of the firm’s intellectual property and brand equity passed into the hands of the current partners. In the coming months, the House will undertake a brand relaunch exercise to celebrate 125 years of heritage.“
With increased strength, F&M now has 18 partners across 3 offices in 2 cities, which include alumni from top law schools in the country.
