In Sanskrit, ‘Samvad’ connotes “discussion, dialogue, debate, engagement”. Samvad underpins the core philosophy of the partnership, comprising a collegiate of partners with a rich mix of domestic and international experience – having worked in top-tier national firms and several international legal and financial centres outside India, including London, New York, Singapore and the Hague.
Samvad coalesced from a merger of regional practices in Bengaluru, Chennai and Mumbai and expanded to a full-service corporate law firm, with offices in New Delhi and Hyderabad. The Firm has grown steadily over the years to more than 100 lawyers and staff.
Our people are our strength. Many of our lawyers are acknowledged leaders in their respective fields. We have an incredibly talented team who have demonstrated success in many ways, both within and outside of the workplace. Samvad endeavours to foster an environment that attracts, nurtures and inspires leaders. Samvad arguably has one of the best ratios of women to men in law firm partnerships, not just in India but globally as well.
We recognize that every path is unique and encourage everyone to set their own course for success.
Our partner Ms. Poornima Hatti moderated a conversation with Ms. Deepika Kinhal and Ms. Shreya Tripathy (lawyers and researchers) in a session titled ‘Balancing the Bench’ of BIC Talks. The podcast discusses the need for judicial diversity and looks at new data in the field.
The Firm regularly tracks developments in law, regulation, and policy that impact doing business in India and produces regular updates.

We also ensure that we showcase our talent through regular publications, both in-house and externally.
