The IBLJ editors wrote:

Duane Morris & Selvam's tremendous reputation on capital markets transactions means it competes and often outdoes several top tier law firms on these deals. "The capital markets team at DMS provides a value-for-money proposition while maintaining partner-level attention," says Manan Lahoty, a partner at L&L Partners. Lahoty recommends Jamie Benson "for personal involvement on all his deals". Key clients include Edelweiss Financial Services, JM Financial, ICICI Securities, IIFL Holdings, SBI Capital Markets, Axis Capital, The President of India, Nomura Capital (India) and Bajaj Finance. Benson, who co-chairs the India practice, was at the helm of Indian IPOs by companies such as Affle Holdings, Prince Pipes and Fittings, Seven Islands Shipping, Anmol Industries, Vectus Industries, Flair Writing Industries, and Stove Kraft. The firm also worked on several qualified institutional placements. Outside this space, the firm has broadened its offerings with capabilities in corporate work and dispute resolution. Special counsel Priyank Srivastava has acted for various Indian clients on corporate and finance matters within the oil and gas and financial services sectors, while other members of the India practice have advised on arbitration matters and Singapore litigation matters.
