Niraj Singh

Niraj Singh has a law degree from Campus Law Centre, University of Delhi. RNS has an experienced dispute resolution team, capable of handling complex domestic and international matters. RNS provides legal services to various domestic and multinational companies in dispute resolution as well as regulatory and compliance issues. RNS is committed to providing dedicated and result-oriented solutions of the highest quality to their clients. The firm always ensures that every client gets personalised attention and 100 per cent involvement of the team. RNS has offices in Delhi, Noida and Gurugram, and associate offices in Bangalore, Chandigarh, Allahabad, Lucknow, Patna, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Jodhpur and other major cities. RNS’ primary focus is to deliver innovative legal solutions while supporting clients and their needs.

Mr Singh believes that clients not only expect quality delivery but also seek due attention and commitment from their external counsel as and when required. It is this realisation that has helped RNS establish itself in the competitive Indian legal market. With his belief in exploring new opportunities, patience, hard work and perseverance, and the nation looking upbeat in terms of ease of doing business, he is sure that RNS will continue to better itself. Having developed very strong ground in terms of core practice areas and domain expertise, the firm is now looking at diversifying into areas that remain untapped. Alongside diversification, the team is also looking at possible technology and innovation-related value addition to further enhance the deliverables to the client.

He also believes that apart from academic excellence, one has to be very careful while making a choice between their skillset and what they are passionate about. Typically, young recruits tend to get distracted by the obvious but it is critical to dive deep and unlearn all the parameters involved. He strongly recommends testing the waters as an external counsel before pursuing the role of an in-house counsel.

Mr. Singh was awarded as lawyer of the year (White Collar Crime) by Legal Era, India Legal Award 2020-21. He was also awarded Litigation Counsel of the Year 2018 (Dispute Resolution) and Lawyer of the Year 2021 by INBA.

“Mr. Singh handles both criminal and civil cases, including corporate fraud, cross-border commercial disputes, extradition cases, white-collar crime and cases relating to recoveries by financial institutions/ NBFC under the SARFAESI Act and DRT Act, Consumer Protection Act, Insurance Act, Medical Negligence and Arbitration. He regularly appears before different High Courts, Tribunals, Commissions and the Supreme Court of India. He regularly defends clients before regulatory authorities, including the ED, SFIO, FI, EOW, IRDA and RBI. He is also advising domestic and international clients on compliance and regulatory issues. His efforts have busted the myth that it is not easy for first-generation lawyers to step up. As he quotes from Charles Dickens’ “Great Expectations”, ‘Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but, I hope, into better shape’.”
