“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.” George Bernard Shaw. Dear Professionals, I take this opportunity to apprise you about the plans, recent developments and the achievements at R & A. The Vision of R & A is to be an integrated legal and advisory services firm having pan India presence providing real time, quality and value added service to its clients. We know that when vision is combined with venture, it becomes substantive. Thomas Edison rightly opines that in the absence of execution, vision is merely hallucination. As a first step, to fulfilling the vision of R &A’s presence across India, we opened the first branch of R &A in Delhi and Gurgaon in March 2011. There has been a good acceptance of our 15yrs of expertise by the corporate entities in Delhi and Gurgaon and this indeed has given a lot of impetus and boost to our future expansion plans. We at R & A strongly believe in sharing our knowledge gained internally as well as externally. We were the knowledge partners for the Seminar on IPO and Private Equity Conclave conducted by Achromic Point, an event management company in the cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad. The program was very well received and the participants appreciated the content and knowledge imparted by the experts. We also have plans to organize training sessions on specific topics under FEMA, Company Law, SEBI regulations and so on for the corporate executives. Keeping in view the dynamics of the economic and business environment globally, moving forward there will be enhanced opportunities available to expand our horizon. New Company Law, renewed focus on Corporate Governance, Secretarial Standards, high focus on Corporate Social Responsibility, convergence with IFRS, XBRL, Direct Tax Code and Goods and Sales tax etc. are further expected to provide more and more diversified opportunities. This paradigm would certainly be more demanding and require us to look beyond the traditional and conventional services to focus on a larger canvas in a wider perspective. Value addition and clients value maximization shall be the key mantra’s to survive and grow in the market place. Multi-tasking and versatile knowledge would be required to reach the pinnacle. We are in the process of implementation of the system driven applications as today technology and technological advancements has embraced every facet of human endeavour. A new orientation in our thinking, perception and action is a call we have taken so as to bring about maximum efficiency in our services to our esteemed clients.
