Gullands Claim Significant Indian Clients2.04.2009
A second visit to India by Blair Gulland and Daxa Broadbank has proved ‘very productive’ for the firm’s newly-formed Indian Business Centre.
The Centre assists Indians resident in the UK as well as those living in India who wish to invest in this country.
“We are looking at ways in which we can forge stronger links with firms in Delhi, some of which are Indian blue chip concerns,” said Blair. “Already we have managed to secure some significant clients, some involving large multi-national companies.”
Daxa, herself of Indian origin and well-connected in the Indian community in this country, is New Business Co-ordinator in the Indian Business Centre. She came to England from East Africa to be educated and worked in London law firms for many years. She came to work at Gullands in 1994 as Blair Gulland’s PA. She is a lifetime member of the Non Resident Indian movement.
Blair has received the rare honour of being appointed a patron of the NRI's UK Chapter at a ceremony in the presence of British High Commissioner, Sir Richard Stagg.
“I would very much like to think that the expertise of our Commercial Department would be able to assist NRIs with their business activities,” said Blair. “This could involve company sales, purchases, joint venture agreements, contracts of employment, acquisitions and sales of freehold and leasehold premises.
“Of course, NRIs would also be interested in issues such as house conveyancing, Wills, Powers of Attorney and tax planning.”
