SAN FRANCISCO – May 1, 2017 – In conjunction with the U.S.-India Business Council, the Bay Area Council, and PwC, global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP will host “Doing Business in India,” a panel discussion and networking event for India Week in the Bay Area. The event will take place on May 9 in Greenberg Traurig’s San Francisco (9:30-11:30 a.m.) and Silicon Valley (4:30-6:30 p.m.) offices.
