Stephan Swinkels, Executive Director and Member of the Board of L&E Global, noted that, “According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) India is expected to be the world’s fastest growing major economy in 2015 and 2016. India has the 7th largest GDP in the world, has the 3rd largest purchasing power parity (PPP), is in the top 20 global traders according to the World Trade Organization and has a labour force of more than 485 million people. As such, it is vital for L&E Global to have an excellent team in India that can advise multinational corporations on all employment law matters. RDA Legal gives us that team.”
“The demand for effective counsel on employment law matters in India is a constant point of interest for clients,” observed John Sander, Shareholder at Jackson Lewis P.C. and Member of the Board at L&E Global. “Whether clients are seeking to enter the Indian market, expand their existing operations or manage their workforces, having a strong and responsive team of practical employment law specialists at RDA Legal is a major element in ensuring that cross-border clients from the US and elsewhere receive the support and advice they need.”
“L&E Global’s reputation as a top-notch worldwide provider of employment law services is well known here in India and many of our clients are already well aware of L&E Global’s expertise and global reach,” said Avik Biswas, Partner at RDA legal. “The prospect of expanding our international practice and solidifying our position nationally as a leader in employment law in the context of L&E Global is very appealing. We believe that RDA Legal will be a major asset to the L&E Global alliance and we are confident that we will exceed the expectations of clients across the globe.”
