Veritas Legal has promoted Vineet Nalawalla, who was key in establishing the firm’s real estate practice, to partner.
“Vineet along with partner Kunal Doshi have been the pillars for building our real estate practice,” Veritas Legal managing partner Abhijit Joshi told India Business Law Journal. “Our firm is young, but we are encouraged that clients have trusted us with large and complex real estate transactions, on a standalone basis and also as part of our corporate practice.”
The firm’s real estate practice includes Nalawalla, Doshi and two other members. “[Doshi] spends some amount of time in guiding the team. I will endeavour to grow a team to a size which is optimal to service the increasing needs,” said Nalawalla.
Nalawalla joined the firm in September 2015 and was previously a partner designate at Dhaval Vassonji & Associates. During his career, he has a been part of several complex real estate transactions, which included advising on acquisition of large land parcels in Maharashtra, setting up of townships and advising IPO bound real estate companies on their land bank.
