The award is based on an analysis of more than 600 law firms worldwide, which were assessed for their India-related work by the Indian trade magazine.
Featuring growth of 7.1 percent in the 2016/2017 budget year, India remains one of the world's fastest growing economies.

Just a few days ago, India introduced the nationwide Goods and Services Tax as part of a tax reform.
