Majmudar lures Norton Rose counsel, ex-Amarchand partner Sabeshan back to India projects

Sabeshan: Back at home
Sabeshan: Back at home
Former Amarchand Mangaldas partner and Norton Rose of counsel Prashanth Sabeshan has joined Majmudar & Co as partner in the Bangalore office today.

Sabeshan will be heading Majmudar’s infrastructure and projects practice across India. Before joining he worked as in-house counsel on a South Asian mine and rail infrastructure project from Singapore between July 2010 and November 2011.

“I was looking at a firm which had a fair amount of international referrals and work. They had worked closely with a few international firms and the feedback from those firms was very good,” said Sabeshan.

He started his career at Amarchand after graduating from NLSIU Bangalore in 1997 and left in 2007, after becoming a partner at the firm, to join Freehills in Australia for one year as a senior associate, followed by one year at Norton Rose in Singapore. In 2009 he qualified as a solicitor of England and Wales and said he returned to India for family reasons.

Despite being an Indian firm, explained Sabeshan, Majmudar worked on many international deals as Indian clients were increasingly going global. “There was a lot of synergy in terms of what I had done the last four to five years.”

Sabeshan is experienced in project development, foreign investment, commercial contracts, mining law, environmental compliance, project finance and other issues in infrastructure projects.

He gained significant exposure after working on the Gladstone LNG project, Exxaro project, and a mining joint venture during his time abroad. Those deals involved a bit of everything, ranging from investment and disinvestments, projects and construction, bankruptcy and other issues, he told Legally India.
