J Sagar Associates (JSA) has promoted Vishnu Sudarsan and Varghese Thomas to its quasi-equity partner ranks, alongside 16 promotions to salaried partner level.

Sudarsan, specialising in corporate and projects, has become equity partner elect in Gurgaon, while Thomas, who specialises in corporate and banking, was promoted to equity partner elect in Mumbai, growing the size of JSA’s equity and quasi-equity partnership to around 23 after the official retirement of the firm’s founder Jyoti Sagar yesterday.

Equity partners elect enjoy the same privileges as equity partners but can not accede to the equity partnership deed due to the 1956 Companies Act 20-partner limit on partnerships.
