Time and again, Indian history shows us that the people of India has wanted to settle outside the country. In today’s times, the trend of settling outside has become so prevalent that one of every 5 families is settled outside. The Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) face a lot of difficulties in terms of legal hurdles and communication gaps. Therefore, now and then NRIs need to consult a legal professional that helps them find solutions to their problems. Some of the legal issues faced by the NRIs are disputes regarding property, Partition in the ancestral property, divorce, child custody, and transfer of property. All these issues are relevant because the NRIs are often unaware of the Indian laws or are new to the legal system of India. There might be other issues as well for those who do not wish to move back to India or those who are moving back.

With the advent of globalization, people began migrating to other countries in huge numbers for better opportunities. Immigration refers to the movement of people from one place to another. This is generally done for long term settlement. A lot of Indians move to other places whereas a lot of people immigrate to India. India is a country with diverse ethnic and religious groups. It offers a variety of attractions from immigrants from other countries. The main challenge for the immigrants is to acquire citizenship of the host country and avail the fundamental rights of that country. Immigration laws address these kinds of issues. The immigrants often are even sometimes faced with an illegal stamp on their immigration. This leads to numerous other problems for them. Sometimes even the legally migrated people are confronted with issues that pose challenges to their migration.
We at Legitab assure you the most efficient service of all time. Our professionals are one of the best in the industry. They assess the case and provide a clear road map through the complexities of the immigration law so that the objectives of the clients are met.

Business Structuring and Restructuring
Business Structuring and Restructuring is also known as corporate restructuring. We at Legitab provide services related to this domain. The corporate restructuring allows companies to cut out business practices while they are hitting their all-time low. Restructuring in such circumstances allows a company to be viable again to perform their functions. It is also to keep in mind that an unsuccessful restructuring can completely push the client out of business and hence, we at Legitab present to the clients the most desired and customized restructuring that will help the company to be functional again. We structure, organize, and prepare for the restructuring process.
Business restructuring generally takes place when a company is going bankrupt or facing other financial losses that will turn the company into nothing. Restructuring is the process of giving back life to the company that is falling apart. A company doesn’t need to be bankrupt for business restructuring to happen. It is a process that helps in the reorganization of debts, financial relations, legal, ownership, operation, and other structures of the company to make it more profitable and meet the company requirements and market needs.
Business restructuring can be of two types, financial restructuring, and operational restructuring. Financial and debt restructuring is a key that the companies begin their process with. Essentially it requires consolidation of funds and adjusting the terms of debts carried out by the company and recapitalizing. This also involves the availability of new loans, private placements, debt rescheduling, and equity for debt swaps. Operational restructuring on the other hand requires changing the management and operational function of the company. It is not enough for the company to get back in the market or survive. Therefore, it is usually the operational restructuring along with the financial and debt restructuring that helps the companies revive. During the process of restructuring, a company may face retention of little claims on already acquired goods, as this is a common term in contracts. This can hurt the entire process with the maximum potential if not dealt with forcefully. We at Legitab help in the proper restructuring of the businesses and ensure full security while doing so.
Non-Governmental Organizations are citizen-based associations that operate independently of the government. The government of India has no role in the operations of these organizations. They are formed to serve one or more social purposes. These NGOs have been classified by the World Bank as either operational or advocacy NGOs. The operational NGOs are concerned with the developmental projects whereas the advocacy NGOs are primarily concerned with promoting a social cause.
We at Legitab help these NGOs in setting up their services or registration of the NGOs. The Indian Non-governmental Organization can be set up under various Indian laws. These NGOs can get themselves registered under the Civil Society Registration Act, 1860. Also, they can get themselves registered under the Public Charitable Trust. The Indian Companies Act also talks about setting up of the charitable trusts and NGOs under section 25 of the Companies Act. These laws are the most basic laws for the functioning of the NGOs and we at Legitab help these NGOs understand these laws and regulations and procedures.
We at Legitab assist these NGOs in the setting up of their NGO for the promotion of the social cause or as their attorneys. There are various laws under which we guide them for a better understanding of the legal system such as the modes, methods, procedural formalities, and the process of documentation. We also help them in getting the big multinational companies to agree to sponsor them for the CSR services. We assist in the negotiation process, convincing process, and finally the documentation process once the companies have agreed to perform CSR with our NGO clients. We also help the NGOs regarding the benchmark required for registration. Our professionals including the legal professionals help the NGOs to meet the requirement or requisite criteria for tax exemptions for noble causes. We also assist in the incorporation of NGOs and compliance related to applicable laws, audits, taxation, and other routine compliances.
Drafting and Vetting
Drafting and vetting of contracts have been one of the most important things in the legal industry. Contracts have always been a crucial aspect of commercial litigation. In this era of commercialization, all businesses need and intend to enter into perfect contracts that people of ordinary prudence can understand and can wilfully comprehend.
The contracts are drafted in a legally sound mind with detailed intricacies to stipulate the parties, to meet the object of such a contract. Drafting and vetting of contracts become important for minimizing the risk resulting from the inconsistent language of the contract. Therefore, a legal compliance officer has to be hired for the process of drafting and vetting of contracts. The time and resources spent during the careful drafting of contracts/agreements can save corporations and businesses from different legal hurdles. We at Legitab are highly experienced in drafting and vetting contracts for clients.
We at Legitab are commercially aware of the hurdles that one might face when not sensibly vetting and drafting contracts. Therefore, we invest a lot of energy, resources, and time into performing drafting and vetting of contracts to avoid legal hurdles. Our highly experienced professionals create contracts according to the will of the parties to protect the client from all angles and all stages of contract execution: pre-drafting, signing, and till the contract is fully executed.
We at Legitab are involved in dealing with several civil litigation cases. We advise companies, government as well as the individual clients concerning their civil litigation matters. We appear in different courts ranging from the Supreme court, High Court, district courts, Consumer Dispute forum (National, State, District), the Central Administrative Tribunal, the Appellate Tribunal for Electricity, Company Law Board, etc. We also handle cases involved in telecommunications disputes, electricity disputes, etc.

Our team has a wide variety of experienced professionals for different types of civil litigation matters. Civil litigation and commercial litigation can be often confused to be the same but they are not. We at Legitab deal with both civil and commercial litigation. The subject matter of the litigation can be as varied as Constitutional law, family law, company laws, service law, banking and finance laws, Agreement or Contract disputes, property suit, recovery, suits, and even Intellectual property suits come within the ambit of Civil Litigation.

Our practice area within civil litigation also extends to the drafting of legal notices, summons and we have also dealt with environment-related cases, motor accident cases, suit for eviction or mesne profits or suits relate to trusts.
The civil litigation matters and the commercial litigation matters sometimes cannot be resolved through courts, therefore the existence of the dispute resolution mechanisms lay a lot of role in determining the outcome of the case. In today’s world where commercial litigation is so complex and time-consuming, clients would always require professionals and result in oriented services. Then sometimes the delay in litigation can be caused due to the pendency of the cases in the courts and the factors connected thereto. Our professionals try our best to make it happen as quickly as possible through alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. We at Legitab not only provide these services but also develop a fiduciary relationship with the client.
We at Legitab believe that the dispute resolution mechanisms are the alternatives to the traditional dispute resolution. These mechanisms comprise negotiations, conciliations, mediations, and arbitrations. These are proved to be more effective and faster than civil or commercial litigation. It is important to note that these resolution mechanisms are not available in case of criminal cases. This is because criminal cases do not come under the purview of civil and commercial litigation. Also, criminal cases involve offenses that are bailable and non-bailable in nature, therefore there is no scope for the alternative dispute resolution. Criminal cases are dealt under the purview of the Indian Penal code and Code of Criminal Procedure only. There can be no alternatives to criminal litigation.
At Legitab we not only provide these services but also have the skills and training required to perform these mechanisms on the behalf of the client. Our professionals and lawyers are equipped with the knowledge and expertise to successfully engage in ADR proceedings while providing you with the guidance, experience, and representation of counsel without the costs of a trial. We not only provide you with assistance in the proceedings but also have a list of trained arbitrators and mediators to resolve disputes between the parties. For more information, you can contact us at the email address given below.
Legitab also provides for criminal litigation services. We encourage our clients not to engage in criminal activities. Going to jail has always been a taboo and will remain the same. The focus of our team in criminal litigation is always to keep our clients out of jail and keeping their criminal records clean. We provide solutions to every criminal act committed but the solutions for each of these acts differ in nature. If the client is facing criminal charges or is undergoing investigation the solutions for them will be totally different because in these situations the potentiality of ending up in jail becomes much higher than the cases where it is just anticipation of landing up in jail. If anybody commits a criminal offense and proved guilty, then the marks of these charges hang on to the criminal for a period of a lifetime. We at Legitab prevent our clients from entering into that category. We as professionals help the clients in protecting their rights as criminal defendants and ensure that you get the best defense out of the case.
