Corporate and M&A, TMT, PE and FinTech: Recognition across practice areas in the Chambers Asia Pacific 2021 guide!


Chamber and Partners, a globally respected guide to legal services, counts Spice Route Legal amongst market leaders in their Asia Pacific Guide for 2021! This year, our work in four separate practice areas has been ranked alongside the best firms in the region – 

  1. Corporate and M&A
  2. Private Equity;
  3. Technology, Media & Telecommunications; and
  4. FinTech.

Further, both founding partners Mathew Chacko and Praveen Raju have been specifically commended as notable and key practitioners in their respective practice areas.

In regards to our Corporate and M&A practice, Chambers recognizes us as a “respected group that is emerging as an established fixture in the market” which “counts an appreciable amount of cross-border work among its portfolio” and is “(s)killed in the formation of new structures and entities alongside…pure transactional work.” 

On our Private Equity practice, Chambers notes that we are a “technology-focused firm with a strong track record in private equity and venture capital transactions, especially involving startups”. Mathew Chacko’s focus on investments in the TMT sector, and his cross border transactional experience finds special mention. 

Our Technology, Media & Telecommunications practice is lauded for its “comprehensive coverage of…sectors, embracing transactional, contentious and regulatory mandates and acting for leading players from…domestic and international market(s).” Mathew Chacko receives praise from clients for his business sense and ability to see commercial issues clearly, as well as for being “knowledgeable…easy to deal with”, and known for “his excitement and forward-looking view”.

Finally, our FinTech sectoral focus is praised by the Chambers FinTech Guide, where we are recognized as having “the specialists and expertise to match up with the best firms in the country”! A client reported that “(Mathew) knew all the right guys in the market, knew how other organisations were working, and helped me close matters with ease.”

As a firm, we maintain that fostering excellence amongst our associates and providing quality advisory to our clients are our guiding principles – so we were exceptionally pleased that clients feel that we are “a stellar team with high availability (who) maintain exceptional levels of partner involvement” and that they further commend our “subject matter knowledge and expertise,” and our “personal touch” and “commitment to the customer”.
