Amarchand Mangaldas has hired a lateral partner and banking and derivatives specialist from the UK and has promoted three of its partner designates to full partnership.

Bank of America Trustees consultant director Niloufer Lam will join Amarchand's banking and structured finance group in Mumbai from 15 May.

She had previously also worked at KBC Bank, Morgan Stanley and as a senior counsel at Linklaters between 1996 and 2006. She is dual qualified in India and as an English solicitor.

Effective from 1 April, the firm has also promoted Mumbai partner designate Ganesh Prasad, who had joined the firm in 2006 from Trilegal, relocating from Amarchand Bangalore to Mumbai in May of last year.

Ganesh Prasad specialises in M&A and private equity and is also dual qualified in India and England.

In Delhi, corporate and regulatory partner designate Suhaan Mukerji and corporate partner designate Anuj Prasad were also promoted to the partnership with effect from 1 April.

Mukerji had been with the firm since 2002, before which he was an analyst with the World Bank, and Anuj Prasad joined Amarchand in 2006 from Dua Associates.

Mumbai managing partner Cyril Shroff said that in June the firm would announce further promotions to partner designate status and other senior associate positions, as well as potentially revising base salaries.
