ELP promotes Vinayak Burman to partner, 6 to associate partner, 14 associates

Vinayak BurmanVinayak BurmanEconomic Laws Practice (ELP) has promoted private equity and venture capital associate partner Vinayak Burman to its partnership, with six senior associates climbing the rung to associate partner level.

Burman had joined ELP in July 2013 from Amarchand, where he was a principal associate.

The following senior associates were promoted to associate partner, which is ELP’s pre-equity partner stage:

  • Anay Banhatti (Mumbai, tax)
  • Bhavin Gada (Mumbai, corporate & commercial)
  • Faraz Sagar (Mumbai, litigation & dispute resolution)
  • Gopal Mundhra (Mumbai, tax)
  • Monish Panda (Delhi, litigation & dispute resolution)
  • Sumit Rai (Mumbai, litigation & dispute resolution)

Two Mumbai tax practice associate managers were promoted to senior associate level – Divya Jeswant and Darshan Bora.

Finally, 12 associates were promoted to the associate manager level, which was created in 2010 by the firm to mirror the career structure at chartered accountancy firms.

  • Abhileen Chaturvedi (Mumbai, litigation & dispute resolution)
  • Abhishek Jaju (Mumbai, tax)
  • Ankita Bhasin (Delhi, tax)
  • Arjun Khera (Delhi, competition law & policy)
  • Darshi Shah (Mumbai, tax)
  • Gourav Sogani (Mumbai, tax)
  • Kanisha Vora (Mumbai, corporate & commercial)
  • Sanchita Rungta (Mumbai, tax)
  • Somnath Shukla (Delhi, litigation & dispute resolution)
  • Supreme Kothari (Mumbai, tax)
  • Tomu Francis (Mumbai, capital markets)
  • Vinitt Nagla (Mumbai, tax)

Correction: The initially published version of the article erroneously stated that Burman was promoted to equity partnership, however he has been promoted to a pre-equity partner position.
