Trilegal Press Statement

Sitesh has extensive experience in handling a variety of corporate commercial disputes, including high stakes arbitrations in diverse industries such as power, infrastructure and banking.

He had joined Trilegal in 2009 from HSA Advocates.

Speaking to Bar & Bench, Sitesh said on his decision to leave the firm,

"It has been a wonderful journey at Trilegal. I started the disputes practice at the firm with three lawyers, and now we are a team of about 50 lawyers. The whole journey has been very satisfying. The firm itself has grown tremendously and I have had the wonderful experience of being part of that outstanding growth.

The choice I had to make was whether to continue contributing to the growth of the firm or focus on advocacy. It is entirely my desire to have a larger court-facing role, which is why I have decided to move out of Trilegal."
