Gupta flies from White & Case


International law firm Bird & Bird announced in April the appointment of partner Nipun Gupta, who joined the firm to launch its India practice group in London.

Gupta was previously with White & Case where she was a partner in the firm’s India practice, specializing in inbound and outbound mergers and acquisitions and disposals – with a particular focus on metals, mining and financial services within emerging markets.

Prior to White & Case, she was the global head of legal at ISPAT International (now Arcelor Mittal), and in 2006 won the Law Day Award from the Indian prime minister in recognition of her contributions in the field of law.
