Ashurst has closed its liaison office in New Delhi after the Bombay High Court ruled against the practice of law by foreign firms in India. The office closure follows a December ruling in the long-running Lawyers Collective case, during which Ashurst's license has been annually renewed. The liaison office was initially set up in 1994 to advise clients on the ground. White & Case and Chadbourne & Parke followed suit, before the Lawyers Collective brought a case against all three to ban their presence.
