Since the independence of India and even more intensively following the economic re-forms in the year 1991 there are numerous and distinctive economic relationships be-tween India and Germany. These relate to both, the inter-country level, and increasingly also to private economy. In this area there are strong export relationships as well as in-vestments which in the past years continuously have shown growth rates. The signific-ance of India in the global trade will increase with its growing economic prosperity. In this context it can be expected that the Indo-German economic relationships will strengthen further. Already now for many German enterprises an engagement in the Indian market is of strategic relevance and has highest priority. Reciprocally there is a high interest of In-dian enterprises in the German market. Thereby, in particular regarding law, differences cannot be overlooked since the Indian legal system - based on the colonial times - is built upon common law principles whereas the German legal system does not follow common law.
In light of these developments Raupach has set up the India-Desk with country-specific know-how, experience as well as contacts dedicated to ensure the optimal advice to rele-vant clients and cases. The India-Desk consists of competent lawyers with specific India related expertise at various Raupach locations. The India-Desk works as contact to all legal topics both for Indian enterprises wishing to become active or already are active in Germany and German enterprises regarding their activities in India. Thereby, and upon according request, we appreciate to work together with our colleagues from the Indian Services Group of our cooperation partner Deloitte & Touche (Germany), Deloitte Haskins & Sells (India) as well as in collaboration with renowned law firms in India. Con-sequently in the past we comprehensively advised large and medium scale M & A trans-actions as well as joint ventures in India and Germany in addition to advising various clients on exports and questions of general economic/commercial law.
