Vivek Jha has joined Fox Mandal & Associates as a partner in the corporate practice at the firm’s Delhi office, while Dipti Das and VC Mathews have been promoted to partners.

Das heads the dispute resolution practice in Mumbai and Mathews leads the IPR practice in Delhi.

“It’s an exciting new phase with [the] Indian economy poised for long-term sustained growth, with greater demand for expertise from clients,” said Jha.

“Having worked previously on various facets of corporate transactions, I look forward to strengthening the firm’s offerings in M&A, private equity and venture capital domains and provide quality services with greater domain expertise to our clients.”

Jha brings extensive expertise in advising corporations, investors, and entities across various industries. Having worked with Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas & Co, Desai and Diwanji, Khaitan & Co and Vaish Associates in the past, his broad experience encompasses venture debt fundraisings, offshore fund investments, acquisitions, joint ventures and legal due diligence.

He has advised on investments in healthcare, finance, logistics, and real estate sectors, along with providing strategic guidance on corporate compliance and structuring.

Fox Mandal, being led by Shuva Mandal, is one of the best places to be in. I am elated that I am a part of this big team. Michael Jordan [says], ‘Talent wins games but teamwork and intelligence win championships.’ I look forward to embodying the aforesaid ideology and strengthen the team further to achieve new milestones and keep the FM flag flying high,” said Das on her appointment.

Das has more than two decades of experience and is a seasoned expert in dispute resolution, having represented clients in various courts and tribunals across Maharashtra and beyond.

Her expertise spans arbitration, civil litigation, insolvency, corporate proceedings at the National Company Law Tribunal, and criminal defence matters. Das has successfully advocated for clients before statutory authorities, judicial bodies, courts, forums and commissions.

Mathews, who has more than 15 years of IPR experience, said: “My vision is to be a collaborative force within the team, leveraging my expertise to streamline processes and elevate the firm’s overall efficiency. I’m passionate about delivering exceptional client service.

“In this role, I envision myself fostering strong client relationships. While I bring new ideas, I’m also eager to learn from the established practices at Fox Mandal & Associates LLP. Together, we can build upon the firm’s strengths and create an even more successful future.”

Mathews has worked on the firm’s IP practice in Delhi, with extensive expertise in trademarks, copyrights, and designs. He handles all aspects of intellectual property, from conducting complex clearance searches to overseeing registration and enforcement procedures for organisations.

Mandal, chairman and managing partner, said, “We welcome them to our partnership and believe that they will contribute to the upward trajectory of the firm’s growth.

“The elevation of Dipti Das and VC Mathews is continued evidence of our focus on organic growth as a firm, as we see talent flourish from within and recognition received from the trust reposed by our clients on a consistent basis.”.
