To help our clients compete on a global scale and
prosper from the ever increasing business opportunities existing between Canada
and India, Bennett Jones has established a group of strategic business and
legal advisors who provide a full range of legal services and strategic advice
to Indian organizations interested in expanding into the Canadian market or
investing in Canadian opportunities as well as assisting Canadian clients in
understanding and pursuing the incredible opportunities available in the rapidly
growing Indian market.
