Sarthak Advocates & Solicitors has appointed Apoorva Chandra as a partner to head its new Mumbai office, expanding its presence to five cities.
“I look forward to setting up the Mumbai office. I firmly believe that any union should be of a meeting of two minds, and this was exactly the case for Abhishek [Tripathi, founder and partner], Mani [Gupta, partner] and myself,” Chandra told India Business Law Journal.
“I am thankful to both of them for putting their trust in me and for this fantastic opportunity. We are a young and dynamic firm, having great zeal to cater to the needs and requirements of our clients.”
Speaking on his Mumbai team, Chandra said Sarthak was in the process of hiring candidates.
Prior to Chandra’s appointment at Sarthak, he was a partner at King Stubb & Kasiva Advocates & Attorneys for 11 months. He has more than 14 years of experience, including as senior associate at Hariani & Co, principal associate at Gravitas Legal and Lex Chambers, among other positions.
Chandra’s expertise covers general, corporate and commercial advisory, private equity, acquisitions, joint ventures, due diligence, commercial contracts and real estate. He advises clients on complex legal issues ranging from company law and other allied laws, real estate laws, and foreign exchange laws, among others.
