May 6, 2016—The economic benefits of reforming India's legal services market outweigh the costs, Nathan Associates analysts concluded in a report for the British High Commission.
"Most regulations including restrictions on the advertisement of legal services, organizational forms that are permissible, and the practicing of domestic law by foreign lawyers and law firms have been in force in the country for more than 50 years," according to the report, A Balancing Act: Cost-Benefit Analysis of Reforming India’s Legal Services Market.
Nathan analysts surveyed businesses and law firms—consumers and providers of legal services—and conducted secondary research. The study also considered the experience of other developed and developing countries in reforming their legal services sectors: Australia, Brazil, China, Israel, Malaysia, Singapore, and the UK.
