Amit Karkhanis, the co-founding partner of Kay Legal & Associates, resigned from the firm in April.
Karkhanis left to start his own independent practice, and hands over the reins to co-founder Shivani Shah and managing partner Abhijit Ranjan.
“We started the firm around 11 years ago, and it has been an amazing journey,” said Shah. “We respect Amit’s decision to move forward and wish him the very best.”
Ranjan has been named majority equity holder at Kay Legal. “We would be focusing on litigation and dispute resolution, and continue to grow in the corporate vertical also,” he said.
Kay Legal has offices in Mumbai and Pune, and focuses on corporate advisory, business law, commercial contract drafting and management, banking and finance, mergers and acquisitions, civil, criminal and healthcare laws.
