Who's Who Legal Corporate Tax: Advisory

Rohan Shah is a practising counsel in the Bombay High Court and Supreme Court. He received his law degree from the Government Law College of Bombay University (now the University of Mumbai). After his LLB, he worked with Crawford Bayley and Co, Advocates and Solicitors in Mumbai (1988-1989). In 2001, Rohan founded Economic Laws Practice (ELP), a leading law firm in India. He was the managing partner of ELP from 2001 to 2016 and then moved on to practise as an independent counsel.

Renowned for his practical knowledge of India’s indirect, domestic, and international taxation codes and policies, Rohan has been appointed to various expert committees formed by the Indian Ministry of Finance and the Indian Ministry of Commerce. He was a member of the Indian commerce minister’s negotiating team at the WTO ministerial conferences in Seattle in November 1999. He was recently appointed as legal expert of the central board of excise and customs subcommittee constituted by the Ministry of Finance in March 2016 to investigate all issues relating to the imposition of excise duty on jewellery.

Rohan has been listed as a leading lawyer in India for his expertise in taxation and technology, media and telecommunications practices by The Legal 500 Asia Pacific and Chambers Asia-Pacific (2009–2016) and as a market leader by Asialaw Profiles (2016).

International Tax Review has consistently recognised his status as a leading tax lawyer in the Indirect Tax Leaders guide, while Tax Directors Handbook also recommended him (2007–2016). He has also been selected among the “100 leading tax lawyers in the world” by Who’s Who Legal: Corporate Tax (2009), and named as a leading lawyer by Who’s Who Legal: Corporate Tax (2010–2017) and Who’s Who Legal: Trade & Customs (2013 to 2017). Rohan has featured in Asian Legal Business’s “hot 100” list in 2010, and was named in the January 2000 edition of India Today as one of the “50 Indians for the next millennium”. He was recognised as the exclusive winner in the corporate tax category in India at the Client Choice Awards (2014 and 2015), and as a leading tax controversy adviser in India by ITR’s Tax Controversy Leaders guide (fourth to seventh editions).

Rohan is a qualified solicitor and is also authorised to practise in England and Wales, as a member of the Law Society.

WWL says: Rohan Shah is celebrated for his comprehensive knowledge of indirect taxes matters, including customs, excise and VAT.
