SNG specialises in the financial sector and has over 40 banks, including SBI, PNB, BoB, ICICI Bank, Citi, StanC and HSBC as its clients. Managing partner Rajesh Narain Gupta said the firm chose to open an office in Singapore 'Largely because of the concentration of financial services companies there. Moreover, the island nation is home to over 5,000 Indian companies.'  More and more domestic Indian law firms are setting up branches abroad, although laws allowing foreign law firms to practice in India are still in existence.  Source: Business Standard
