Sheppard Mullin's Nota Bene

Oct 17, 2018

India is not showing signs of slowing down any time soon. Despite a historical complex regulatory environment and structural corruption, the country is seeing positive changes brought about by the current government, the technology boom, and the Millennial generation. Together, these could help India further emerge as a key player in the global economy.

Joining us in this episode to discuss these changes is Fatema Merchant. Fatema is an attorney in the Government Contracts, Investigations & International Trade Practice Group of Sheppard Mullin’s Washington, D.C. office. Fatema’s practice focuses on investigations, compliance counseling, and transactional due diligence related to international trade laws.
