The US remains one of India’s most important business partners, with the US-India corridor abuzz with activity. Strong story telling & compelling content, the proliferation of 4G, popularization of social media and rapid increase in smart phone users in India are some factors which have opened-up plenty of business opportunities for US companies in India. The entry of media giants like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Spotify fortifies the commitment that M&E businesses have made to make the Indian market a constant in their business plans and tap the massive consumer base it offers. The focus of the corporates has moved from only exploring market potential to active deal making, maintaining safer workplace environment and navigating contractual disputes.

Our endeavor is to bring together the business heads and lawyers focusing on the M & E Industry, to discuss, ideate and innovate with us. During the focused agenda of the event, the panelists shall discuss the three facets of handling crisis creatively and effectively in India- an anticipate, prevent and cure approach. The panelists shall share their experience on

  • Anticipate potential contractual pitfalls and IP issues from a litigation lens
  • Solving the conundrums of choice of law, selection of seat and venue of arbitrations & exclusivity of courts
  • Creative solutions & effective handling of contractual disputes with the aid of alternate tools for recovery like insolvency procedures
  • Handling internal and partner investigations in India addressing potential frauds and ethics complaints (including matters flowing from the whistle blower complaints and the “#MeToo” movement)
  • Effectively reducing dispute resolution time frame to 18/24 months using the newly formed commercial courts
  • Mechanisms to ease the enforcement of commercial judgments from non-reciprocating countries like US


The business and dispute resolution ecosystem is evolving and has seen a paradigm shift. Join us as the experts discuss and deliberate on the above and help you avoid and navigate disputes in India creatively and efficiently.
