Khaitan & Co Mumbai office moves North


Khaitan & Co's Mumbai office is moving from the Ballard Estate area to Lower Parel, where it has taken a lease of a large space allowing it to double in size in future.

Mumbai partner Rabindra Jhunjhunwala said: "We are moving to a swanky 32,000 square feet fancy building called One Indiabulls Centre."

Khaitan & Co Mumbai, despite having only been founded in 2001, is by far the firm's largest office with around 100 lawyers. New Delhi is around 40 lawyers strong by comparison.

The new office space will have a capacity of up to 350 total lawyers and support staff, said Jhunjhunwala, adding that the firm would not need the entire space immediately.

On 1 November Khaitan & Co will move to its new office in the Lower Parel region, which is very close to Amarchand Mangaldas' Peninsula Towers office and not far from Trilegal's office in nearby Worli.

The majority of other major Mumbai firms are still based further South around Nariman Point, Fort or Ballard Estate, where Khaitan & Co was formerly located at Meher Chambers on R K Marg.

"We could have gotten space that side of town as well," insisted Jhunjhunwala, "but the idea was to move into one floor – the place we are currently in we have broken up offices and offices across the road [from each other]. Here we will be on one floor, one location, one office."

"It's a statement which we make - the first time you walk in you feel like you're in [London's new business district] Canary Wharf."
