Platinum Partners co-founder and Senior Partner Nihar Mody has retired from the firm.

Confirming his decision to retire, Mody said,

“I have been practicing law for more than 25 years. I have been wanting to take a career break for a while. I have now taken that break and I will decide what i want to do in the next phase of my career.”

Founded in May 2008 by Nihar Mody and Karam Daulet Singh, Platinum Partners has about 45 lawyers and 8 partners across its offices in Delhi, Bombay and Bangalore.

Nihar is a graduate of Government Law College, Mumbai. He was working with Wadia Ghandy till 2006, after which he joined Freshfields in London. In 2008, he moved back to India to set up Platinum Partners along with Singh.

On Nihar’s decision to move on, Karam Daulet Singh said,

“He has been a co-founder of Platinum along with me since its inception. We value his contribution enormously. He has decided to move on and we wish him the best.

As far as Platinum is concerned, we hope to grow strength to strength. We are looking forward to building this firm even more strongly in the coming years.”

Ankit Majmudar, who had joined the firm in early 2015 from Wadia Ghandy, is now heading the firm’s Mumbai office. The other partners in Mumbai are Gautam Bhat, Piusha Bose and the recently promoted Zubin Masani.

Yashasvi Mohanram is heading the Bangalore office, while Anuj Bhatia and Gaurav Desai are in Delhi along with Karam Daulet Singh.
