The Bar Council of India (BCI) has approved foreign lawyers and law firms to practice in India, according to The Indian Express. It has, however, set strict regulations and restrictions, declaring that a foreign lawyer may only engage in non-litigious matters and provide legal advice. In this regard, the statutory body will develop specific practice areas for them in consultation with the Law Ministry.
