About Us

A full-service law firm with a legacy of 38 years and pan-India presence

DMD Advocates is a leading full-service law firm in India with a focus on solutions through a unique holistic approach that blends its expertise and decades of experience in core practice areas - litigation & arbitration, taxation, corporate, regulatory, competition, and intellectual property rights. We have a team of more than 100 lawyers, including 26 partners/directors, and a pan-India presence, with principal offices in New Delhi & Mumbai and associate offices in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Cochin, Kolkata, and Bhubaneswar.

From humble beginnings to a global footprint

DMD Advocates was formed when Dutt & Menon, a Delhi-based law firm founded in 1986 by Ms. Anuradha Dutt and Ms. Vijayalakshmi Menon, expanded through a merger with Dunmorr Sett, a Mumbai-based law firm founded in 1992 by Ms. Fereshte Sethna. The firm further expanded by adding Rashi Dhir as a Senior Partner to lead our Corporate and Transactional practice. Under the remarkable leadership of our Senior Partners, the firm has scaled great heights in the legal industry and has carved out a niche for itself not just in India but also internationally.

Our culture comes to life through our values

At DMD Advocates, we foster a culture based on our core values of 'trust' and 'ownership'. We strongly believe in forging trust-based relationships and handholding our clients every step of the way, which many of our clients have validated by developing long-term relationships with us and considering us as their go-to legal advisors for any legal issue, be it simple or complex.

An inclusive workplace to achieve success

We are an equal opportunity firm and have a zero-tolerance policy towards any bias or discrimination. We strongly believe in equality for all regardless of age, gender, race, religion, ethnicity, orientation, economic status, and disability. We value diversity in the workforce and consistently make efforts to create an inclusive and supportive workplace where everyone is valued and treated with respect.
