He recently joined the firm and will be responsible for the practice development and managing operations.

“We have been actively considering establishing our office in Mumbai for quite some time…the opening of our new branch in the vibrant financial hub of India is a natural progression and would help us further expand our strong client and partner base…”

The firm has plans to beef up its Mumbai team and set up operations in other cities as well in the coming months. It currently has 30 lawyers, including 6 partners.

Orbit Law Services, which was formed in September last year, are also looking to expand with the opening of their new Chennai office. The new office, which began work on June 8, will be headed by Associate Partner Haridas Sriramulu and another Junior Associate. The Chennai team will be strengthened by a Senior Associate and two more Junior Associates. Till such time, they will be backed by the team at Mumbai.

At the beginning of this year, the firm announced the opening of their third office at Vijayawada. The first two are at Delhi and Mumbai. The firm currently has a strength of 35 lawyers, including 2 Senior Partners, 4 Partners and 7 Associate Partners.

Delhi-based Alpha Partners has also set up a new office at Bangalore, with a view to provide legal assistance to startups and investors in the city.
