Exclusive: Kolkata's young Argus Partners expands to Mumbai

Argus Partners, which broke away from Amarchand Mangaldas Kolkata last year, has set up a Mumbai office relocating partner Ramya Hariharan to the city full-time while partner Krishnava Dutt will also spend half his time in the financial hub.

The 600 square foot office is based in central Mumbai on the Worli sea-face and will be dealing initially with corporate, banking and projects work, with the firm eventually planning to also move into capital markets.

Hariharan said: “Most of our instructing clients are from Bombay and it being the financial capital of India, which is why we started in Bombay.”

Dutt (pictured) agreed and added that it was a natural corollary to set up there. “There were transactions we were doing that had nothing to do with Kolkata and clients gradually started liking the work and said we’d have to start in Bombay.”

“We have a couple of mandates already in our first month itself,” he added.

The firm is now 20 lawyers in size, said Dutt.

Argus Partners was founded by former Amarchand Mangaldas’ Kolkata partner and head Dutt in September 2009, together with Hariharan.

It rapidly expanded and by December consisted of 13 lawyers and two partners.
