4 03 OUR EMPLOYMENT EXPERIENCE IN INDIA Businesses in India Our clients cover a diverse spread of industries, including science, research and development and technology design. We also advise a number of insurance companies and other financial institutions, as well as e commerce businesses, telecommunications companies, internet companies and transport and related enterprises. We have developed particular expertise over several years of working with Indian corporations and finance houses and local Indian law firms on a co counsel basis. The increasing growth and liberalisation of the Indian economy is creating new opportunities for businesses looking to develop a European presence. We have the enterprise and experience required to enable Indian companies to successfully establish and staff their businesses in the UK. Clients value our service which is tailored to meet their business. Examples of some of our work are set out on page four of this brochure. Businesses in the UK In 2011, the World Bank declared the UK to be the best place in Europe and the G8 in which to do business. Overall, the UK is continuing to maintain its long term position as one of the few globally attractive locations for foreign direct investment. The UK is it a gateway to Europe and has real advantages for businesses as a country which is committed to free trade, offering a range of business solutions. Any business operating in the UK needs to be aware of the employment law and immigration requirements which govern the employment of individuals working in the UK. Workers in the UK have various employment protection rights, some of which are a result of the UKʹs membership of the European Union. We provide comprehensive employment law and immigration services, and advise businesses operating and/or looking to operate in the UK, on how best to limit their exposure to risks and avoid potential pitfalls by working within the UK regulatory regime.
