Shipping law start-up lawyer Harsh Pratap joins Clasis

Shipping lawyer Harsh Pratap has joined the Mumbai office of Clasis Law as a partner to head up the shipping & international trade division of the firm.

Pratap advises Indian and international clients on a variety of fields such as shipping matters, including commercial litigation and arbitration, stated a Clasis press release.

Pratap graduated from GLC, Mumbai in 2001 and obtained an LLM in maritime law from the University of Southampton in the UK.

He told Legally India: “After graduating from GLC I worked for a few years and then went to University of Southampton to do a masters in maritime law for one year. I returned and worked for another few years and then joined Clasis Law. Maritime law usually involves a lot of international law, so apart from Indian laws, other laws will usually be involved. It is exciting and I look forward to my work here. Our firm is venturing out into the field of shipping and international trade and I will be heading this division.”

Harsh had previously worked in the capacity of a senior associate with Prashant S Pratap Law Office in Mumbai and briefly set out on his own under the banner HP Law.

Clasis Law had hired former Parekh & Co lawyer Sumeet Lall late last year at the Delhi office and added former Trilegal of counsel Sagar Divekar in Mumbai.

Clasis’ legacy firm ALMT promoted four senior associates to partnership, Legally India reported yesterday.
