Ankit Majmudar, decade-long Wadia Ghandy Bangalore partner, to join Platinum with team; WG closes in city for now [UPDATE-3]


Wadia Ghandy Bangalore partner Ankit Majmudar is set to leave the firm early next year.

Update: According to several sources he will join Platinum Partners in Bangalore. Ashish Ahuja commented: “Wadia Ghandy does respect his decision and has accepted it and wishes him well.”

Update 2: Platinum Mumbai partner Nihar Mody confirmed that Majmudar would launch Platinum’s Bangalore office, which will be the firm’s third office.

Update 3: Ahuja said that Majmudar’s entire team would also move. “We are at present shutting down the [Bangalore] office and will restart at an appropriate time.”

Majmudar declined to comment when contacted.

Majmudar, who joined the firm directly after graduating from NLSIU Bangalore in 2000, became partner there in 2004.

In 2011, he was one of three lawyers to manage the firm’s new Singapore office, having been granted a licence to practice Indian law there and travelling there regularly.

Legally India reported last week that the Singapore office has now been closed, after the commercials did not quite work out.

Wadia Ghandy also recently converted to an eat-what-you-kill style partnership after rejigging its internal management structure.
