Udit Mendiratta

Disputes lawyer Udit Mendiratta has joined Argus Partners as a partner from Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas & Co (SAM), where he had worked since July 2019.

Mendiratta has more than 10 years of experience handling corporate and commercial disputes, and has advised Indian and multinational clients.

“The disputes practice in Delhi, which has been going from strength to strength under the leadership of [senior partner] R Sudhinder, will be significantly bolstered by his joining,” said Argus’ managing partner, Krishnava Dutt.

Mendiratta began his legal career with Karanjawala & Company, where he primarily practised before Delhi High Court and Supreme Court. In January 2013 he moved to Trilegal, where his practice focused on commercial disputes before the Bombay High Court, as well as institutional and ad hoc arbitrations.

Mendiratta also has experience advising clients under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code.
