The Pepper Five: On U.S. – India Issues
This is a podcast series where we ask Pepper attorneys five key questions on topics that are top of mind for our clients. In this session, we sit down with Valérie Demont, chair of Pepper’s U.S.-India practice. Ms. Demont and James D. Rosener, chair of Pepper’s International Practice, are preparing for a trip to India in February 2014 that will take them to New Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai.
We discuss what she hopes to accomplish on this trip, including an event series with the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce which will focus on key issues for Indian companies looking to conduct business in the U.S. We also discuss what are some of the key Indian legal and regulatory trends to be mindful of in 2014 and whether India is still a top global destination for foreign investment.
