Tatva Legal Bangalore Partner Timothy Franklyn has been selected as an Obama Scholar, one of 11 rising leaders from around the world who will study at Columbia University, New York for the 2020-21 academic year. He will take a sabbatical from the firm during this period.

Franklyn is the only Obama Scholar to have been chosen from India.

Before working at Tatva Legal, Franklyn has worked as a corporate finance lawyer at international firms like Allen and Overy, DLA Piper, and Jones Day.

He is also the founder of the National School of Journalism (NSOJ) in Bangalore.

Franklyn completed his LL.B from University Law College, Bangalore, and holds an LL.M degree from the London School of Economics.

Over the course of his career as a lawyer, Franklyn has advised governments, corporations and global investment banks on international corporate finance.

Commenting on the development, Tatva Legal Partners NK Dilip and Manav Nagaraj said,

“We could not be prouder of Timothy and this selection is a testament to his hard work and dedication both within and outside the legal sphere. Timothy will be on a sabbatical from the firm during the period of his studies and while we will miss his presence in the office, we cannot think of a candidate more deserving than him being awarded this very prestigious fellowship”.
