He has been ranked by Asialaw Profiles, Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and Who’s Who Legal as one of India’s top lawyers since 2011.

Avik is recognised for his Employment Law practice and his work in the Ethics and Investigations space across all industry sectors and is considered a subject matter expert in employment contracts, internal investigations, nationwide employment audits, policies and handbooks, whistle-blower investigations, disciplinary inquiries, sexual harassment proceedings, structuring compensation and benefits, conducting Reduction in Force (RIF) exercises and negotiation of senior management recruitments/severances.

Avik is also very well regarded for his strategic advice to legal, compliance, finance and HR functions of multinational corporations in relation to legal risk mitigation and management, governance, anti-bribery and anti-corruption issues and related best practices in Indian markets.

Avik regularly speaks on internally investigations, employment law, anti-bribery and anti-corruption matters at events in India and overseas. In fact, he currently serves as the Regional Representative (Asia) of the Anti-Corruption Committee of the International Bar Association (IBA). 

Prior to joining INDUSLAW, Avik was a Partner at RDA Legal. Avik has also been a senior member of Poovayya & Co and the in-house legal team of Infosys Technologies.

He is an avid sports fan and plays a bit of football and cricket himself. He worships almost everybody who has worn the famous Manchester United jersey or the Indian test cricket team’s whites. Had the law not found him, he would probably have become a sports journalist.
