Trilegal has recently moved its existing Delhi office from Kailash Colony to DLF South Court, Saket as part of the firm’s “expansion plans”.
The new office space is large enough to accommodate one hundred and sixty people, up from the current hundred.
Speaking to Bar & Bench, Trilegal Partner Anand Prasad said,
“We were outgrowing our office in Kailash Colony and since we are expanding, we needed a larger office and the present office at Saket meets our requirements.
“We are also certainly on a look out to grow our existing teams. Our prime criterion is whoever we get laterally whether in the partnership or below, he must be a quality professional.”
The new location of Trilegal office will make it easier for the firm to cater to its clients in Gurgaoan, considering the close proximity to Saket.
Trilegal is not the only firm shifting offices.
AZB & Partners’ Mumbai office is also moving from its South Mumbai Express Towers’ office to Lower Parel’s Peninsula Corporate Park. The new office will be called ‘AZB House’, and share space with Amarchand’s Bombay office.
The year 2015 may very well see the opening and expansion of a number of law firms, as the country’s largest law firm Amarchand Mangaldas, is divided between the two Shroff brothers.
After all, it is not office space alone that is heading for a division.
Ever since Amarchand announced the split, the legal industry has been abuzz with rumours of inter-firm poaching and lateral movements. Although the Shroff family and senior management are holding their cards close, there are strong indications of Shardul Shroff looking to build a strong presence in Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai and Cyril Shroff launching a Delhi office with a team of ‘100 lawyers’.
All plans will be revealed on April 1, 2015 when the formalities of the split shall be announced.
