K Venkat Satyanarayana has joined Algo Legal as a partner in the firm’s Bengaluru office.
Satyanarayana joins from Link Legal India Law Services, where he was an equity partner heading the Bengaluru office and co-heading the Hyderabad Office.
Satyanarayana has more than three decades of experience advising on mergers and amalgamations, private equity, foreign direct investment, and commercial disputes across multiple sectors including highways, energy, healthcare and information technology.
“My decision to move to Algo Legal is primarily twofold,” said Satyanarayana. “First, being the harnessing of technology in legal services, of which I gathered that Algo Legal is a vanguard in this area. Second, the desire of the leadership team to build an impact-based organization relying upon a mixture of the exuberance of youth and experience.”
Satyanarayana has also worked as a legal and tax expert advising government bodies and private firms alike in the environmental and energy sectors.
“Venkat is a great addition to the team,” said Sandeep Kapoor, founder and managing partner of Algo Legal. “His depth of expertise across a multitude of high-growth niche industries, and his strong familiarity and network in South India will help Algo strengthen its base in our home ground.”
Algo Legal was founded in 2019, with its primary office in Bengaluru and other offices in Mumbai and New Delhi.
