Balwani: Balwani: Khaitan Sud & Partners (KSP) partner Preeti Balwani is joining Rajani, Singhania & Partners in Mumbai on 12 May.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity at KSP and joining Rajani is a natural progression of my career,” commented Balwani.

Balwani will be joining the corporate and private equity team of around five lawyers and three partners.

Balwani had joined KSP a year ago from ALMT Legal, where she was a senior associate.

Erstwhile Mumbai firm Rajani & Partners, which merged with Singhania & Partners last year, has just under 40 fee-earners in Mumbai in addition to 11 partners with Balwani.

Nationally, with offices in Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad, the headcount is around 100 lawyers.

A Rajani partner declined to comment.

Khaitan Sud managing partner Umesh Khaitan commented: “Preeti is joining Rajani with all my best wishes.”

KSP recently dissolved its insurance litigation vertical, Legally India had reported in February.

I have seen lot of documents prepared by the law firm khetan nd sud and honestly speaking these were superbly a waste. They don't know even the basics of law and the language is equally worse.
