Trilegal recently rolled out a revamped governance structure that saw founding partners Karan Singh and Rahul Matthan make way for an elected two-member management committee (MC) helmed by partners Sridhar Gorthi and Nishant Parikh for a term of three years.
This is the first time the firm has held an election to select MC members, and the first time it has set a term limit for them.
Trilegal also elected a seven-member board for a term of four years to advise the MC for crucial matters. The firm appointed new practice heads for a term of three years, and office heads for the general welfare of each of the firm’s offices.
The change of hands and structural revamp happened during the nationwide lockdown due to COVID-19, when offices were to be kept closed and staff worked from home.
