Khaitan & Co takes on Clifford Chance SA: second dual-qualified banking partner

Khaitan & Co has hired its second full-time banking partner, with former Clifford Chance London and Singapore senior associate Devidas Banerji joining in Mumbai.

Banerji (pictured) had started his career at Clifford Chance in 2002, beginning as a trainee, qualifying as an associate in asset finance and moving to join the firm’s Singapore general banking and finance team in 2007.

He had graduated from Symbiosis Pune in 2001 after which he completed an LLM at the University of Cambridge in 2002. He is dual qualified as an advocate and solicitor in West Bengal and England & Wales respectively.

Banerji and Khaitan & Co were unavailable for comment but the firm wrote in a press release said that Banerji’s appointment reinforced the belief to provide “high quality and specialist services” to its clients in banking and finance. Partner Rabindra Jhujhnunwala wrote: “Within a short period of time we have created a formidable banking and finance practice out of the Mumbai office.”

In April the firm hired former White & Case senior associate Shishir Mehta to build up its specialist banking practice in Mumbai as a partner and only last week Legally India reported that Khaitan & Co had introduced a salaried-partnership rung with the hire of Rajat Mukherjee as an associate partner in Delhi from Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom in New York.

The firm’s total partnership is now 43 partners, including one non-equity partner.
