‘It is not who is right, but what is right, that is of importance…’
– Thomas Huxley
The landscape of law firms axiomatically is focused onto Corporate Advisory Service with industry or sector specific specialisation and counsel briefing, in case of litigation. Partners and associates at Vidhi Legal are a amalgam of Corporate Advisory and accomplished litigation lawyers with a cumulative experience of more than FIFTY YEARS in litigation. The underpinning philosophy at Vidhi Legal is to infuse a subscription based approach in providing end-to-end in-house solution both in case of non-litigation portfolio and engagement at all stages of litigation, bringing on the table a cost-effective yet result oriented deliverables. Social sensitivity is amongst the key driver in Vidhi Legal’s professional commitment, and is firmly rooted to the belief that law isn’t a static set of commandments rather is dynamic and is an organic harbinger to the social evolutionary grid of aspirations and value systems touching upon the individuals constituting the social milieu.
We at Vidhi Legal are conscious of Hon’ble Supreme Court’s timeless observance in the judgment of Zahira Shaikh Versus State of Gujarat where the ideals and benchmark of Advocacy to secure justice has been so aptly exhorted :
It was significantly said that law, to be just and fair has to be seen devoid of flaw. It has to keep promise to justice and it cannot stay petrified and sit non-challantly. The law should not be seen to sit by limply, while those who defy it go free and those who seek its protection loose hope (See Jennison v. Backer (1972 (1) All ER 1006). Increasingly, people are believing as observed by SALMON quoted by Diogenes Laertius in “Lives of the Philosophers” laws are like spiders’ webs: if some light or powerless thing falls into them, it is caught, but a bigger one can break through and get away”. Jonathan Swift, in his “Essay on the Faculties of the Mind” said in similar lines: “Laws are like cobwebs, which may catch small flies, but let wasps and hornets break through”.
