UUA managing partner Krishnava Dutt advised Magma with senior associate Adity Chaudhury and associate Aastha. The firm was formed after Argus Partners, which was co-founded by Dutt in Kolkata in 2009, merged with Mumbai solicitors firm Udwadia & Udeshi early this year.

AZB Mumbai partner Shameek Chaudhuri advised GE Capital.

Magma will buy 100 per cent of the equity in GE Money Housing Finance, which has Rs 660 crores of housing finance loan assets and a net worth of Rs 193 crores, as at 31 March 2012.

It will also acquire the entire home equity loans portfolio of GE Money Financial Services, which had loan assets of Rs 940 crores as at 31 May 2012, reported Mint.

But for its office in South India, UU&A would be a Tier 1 firm.

I've heard they have some other massive deals in the pipeline. Krishnava is a superstar, unfortunately he's the only one - tough to be tier one on the back of one superstar.

and should also mention Manmohan Singh, Sonia gandhi, P. Chidambaram, D. Subba Rao, who were instrumental in providing a platform and regulations to enable such deals.
and the paralegals, telephone operator and peons in UUA who supported the counsel

@Kian, so what I cant understand is that when the firm does not want to name certain lawyers as being relevant to a deal, their names are being displayed as part of comments. This is not correct. Obviously all the lawyers named in the comments did not contribute significantly enough to deserve mention hence they were not mentioned. Would request you to refrain from putting up such comments as they are entirely pointless.

Are Argus Kolkata and UUArgus different? Comments seem to suggest the same.
