Eversheds’ Intellectual property advice will be particularly relevance to local companies keen to penetrate India as a key export market.

Cambridge senior partner Ian Mather said: "We are taking action, based on client demand, to open an India desk which draws on the expertise of those of the 2,000 lawyers in Eversheds who have genuine experience or connections with India.

"Amjad Hussain has been recruited to assist with the efforts in this region and nationally.

"He is based in Cambridge because we see this as a key place for business in relation to biotechnology, pharma, IP, education, IT and outsourcing.

"Amjad works in all of these areas and also speaks Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi.

"He has recently returned to the UK from working in Dubai where he did deals in India and Pakistan.

"These included an IPO in Pakistan and the acquisition of financial services business by a UAE entity in Dubai.

"We are also positioning ourselves so that we can service clients investing in India from the UK."

Examples of other work done by people on the India desk include outsourcing and joint venture agreements in a range of sectors including financial services and manufacturing.
