Our History

Mr. Rohit Kochhar, Chairman & Managing Partner, established the Firm in 1994 during a time when the emergence of corporate law firms in India was still in its nascent stages and the conventional practice of law was mainly confined to the corridors of Indian courts. Mr. Kochhar recognized that economic reforms and liberalization would throw open several new opportunities within the Indian economy and this would in turn transform the landscape of Indian law practice.

With the opening up of the Indian economy in early 1990's, Kochhar & Co. recognized that with a huge influx of MNCs in India, providing top quality legal support was indeed the need of the hour. By setting up the Firm, he bridged the gap existing between the expectations & requirements of MNC clients and level of legal support then available within India. 

Mr. Kochhar ventured out to shape his vision, with only two associates and now, after an interesting and challenging journey of over two decades, he has a family of more than 180 attorneys spread across 10 offices in India and abroad.

Kochhar & Co. now is the preferred service provider among Indian law firms.
