Theories of law firm globalization in the shadow of colonialism: a cultural and institutional analysis of English and Indian corporate law firms in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries
The final restatement of this chapter should be short. If we ask, "What is the state of foreign law firms in India?," the answer is: there are none because they are banned from India for a variety of political, legal, and professional-cultural reasons. So what is there to say about foreign law firms in India? Perhaps more than may be realized from my opening Despite a ban on practicing in India, foreign law firms have been strategic, if not canny, in their business with India.

My aim in this chapter is to explain empirically and theoretically why we have this nebulous situation.
