Talwar Thakore takes building big enough to double headcount


Linklaters best friend Talwar Thakore & Associates has leased a new office in the Fort area with 70 per cent more floor space, bucking the recent trend of Mumbai firms moving North.

The firm will move to the Kalpataru Heritage building on the arterial Mahatma Gandhi (MG) Road in the first week of January 2010 when the new 8,500 square foot office is hoped to be fully outfitted.

The lease on Talwar Thakore's current 5,000 square foot office on Ballard Estate's Sprott Road expires in February 2010.

The firm is currently located near the Mumbai office of J Sagar Associates (JSA).

Talwar Thakore co-founding partner Shobhan Thakore said: "Obviously we are outgrowing this place and in this building there was no extra space that the landlord could give us."

Talwar Thakore currently has 22 lawyers, with Thakore and Suresh Talwar leading the firm as partners.

Thakore said that the new office space had a lease of three year and made provision for growing to 40 lawyers.

"Coincidentally [the new building] is the office where I spent 30 years of my life from 1969 until 2004," mused Thakore.

Before setting up Talwar Thakore as a best friend firm for Linklaters, Thakore was a senior partner with Bhaishanker Kanga & Girdharlal, which had its office in the Kalpatuaru Heritage building since the 1950s.

Khaitan & Co, Phoenix Legal and Trilegal all moved to central Mumbai in the Lower Parel area in the last two months.
