Trilegal moves in with Khaitan & Co to Mumbai's Lower Parel


Trilegal will be the second law firm to move into Lower Parel's One Indiabulls Centre in November, joining Khaitan & Co in the same Mumbai office block. Trilegal is also moving into its long-planned new office in Delhi this month and preparing for its move in Bangalore.

Trilegal Mumbai partner Nishant Parikh said the move was necessary because the firm had outgrown its current office in Worli's Madhuli Road, which is only several kilometres from its new location in Lower Parel.

Parikh said: "It's convenient for everybody, for the lawyers and the clients. And Lower Parel is becoming business hub in itself. It's going to be the next CBD [central business district] – it's right in the centre of the city.

"Whether you are either in South Bombay or North Bombay it is just so accessible."

Trilegal's Mumbai office of a little over 40 lawyers will move to the fourteenth floor of the One Indiabulls Centre place between 12 and 14 November.

The office is understood to be around twice the size of its previous location at roughly 12,000 square feet.

The area is around 15km from the traditional base of most law firms in Nariman Point and Fort at the Southern tip of Mumbai, although Amarchand Mangaldas and Phoenix Legal also have offices in Mumbai's Lower Parel area.

Khaitan & Co will move from South Mumbai to the same One Indiabulls complex on 1 November.

Within one month the firm is also set to complete its move out of its current Mathura Road location in South Delhi.

The current location has been plagued by long traffic jams in the mornings morning as staff attempt to navigate a narrow one-way bypass to the office, which has been created after the start of construction for the Delhi Metro.

Trilegal will move to an office in the Kailash Colony, which lies around 10km North, further towards Delhi's centre.

Trilegal Delhi partner Anand Prasad said that the new space was around 20 to 25 per cent larger than its current office of around 55 lawyers.

In Bangalore, Trilegal is also preparing to move to a larger office around 7km East of its current location in the central Vaishnavi Redwoods complex. The firm is almost 20 lawyers strong in Bangalore.
