LEADERSHIP PEDIGREE

S. K. SINGHI

Founder & Managing Partner

In the modern world, there is a greater respect for ‘how’ over the ‘what’.

Clients, associates, employees and other stakeholders are beginning to indicate ‘Don’t just tell us what you will deliver to us, but also tell us how you will do so in a predictable and sustainable manner.’

This is bringing into spotlight a philosophy that is assuming increased importance: Governance.

At our firm, governance stands for two principal realities.

One, we believe in holistic integrity – whether this is through communication transparency with our stakeholders, complete compliance with the laws of the land and more than measuring up to the ethical expectations of all those who engage with us.

Two, we believe in investing a range of experiences and knowledge in our people, widening their perspectives.

We believe that the combination of subject matter expertise and an ethical mindset can transform realities into the positive with speed.

This is how we have enriched stakeholder relationships in the past; this is how we expect to sustain them across the future.

This is our simple blueprint of how we expect to make the world a better place for all those who engage with us.

‘We have been asked many a time: What makes us different?’

There is a singular objective : to provide substantial value to our stakeholders (relief, peace of mind and smoothness of engagement)

Our firm provides a considered and balanced approach. We provide advice based the legal tenability of the case and the practical realities of the world

Our success has been derived through the management of client expectations in a transparent manner by listing probable downsides upfront, eliminating undue optimism on the one side and investing the best effort on the other.
