Luwang (pictured) joined as the head of Kochhar & Co's oil & gas and infrastructural development practice in Delhi on 6 April.

He told Legally India that the firm had ambitious plan for a robust practice in India's North East, with him spearheading the development there.

Luwang graduated from ILS Pune, starting as a Supreme Court practitioner in 1995. After a brief stint at Fox Mandal he joined Corporate Law Group in 1998 as an associate, rising to senior partner level.

Corporate Law Group confirmed the Luwang's departure but its managing partner Krishna Sarma was unavailable for comment.
