Phoenix Legal has hired Khaitan Sud & Partners partner Debarshi Dutta with senior associate Riddhi Sancheti, according to authoritative sources.

Dutta joined Phoenix in April as a counsel in the Delhi litigation practice. He had been promoted to Khaitan Sud partnership a year ago.

He specialises in litigation and arbitration and commercial disputes and is a 2006 graduate of Calcutta University, having also practiced at the original side of the Calcutta high court.

Khaitan Sud & Partners did not respond to an email seeking comment.

It is understood that Phoenix has also hired 2009-Nalsar graduate Archisman Chaudhary in its Delhi litigation team. He had previously worked at ALG in Delhi and Poovayya & Co in Bangalore.

The majority of litigation at Phoenix is handled by by Mrinal Ojha and Trinath Tadakamalla, who joined recently.

Mrinal and Trinath aren't litigation-lawyers, per se. They are insurance law specialists, who work on contentious matters that are relevant to the insurance industry. They always have a litigation lawyer like Debarshi on their retainer, who is thorough with original side practice and procedure, on whose shoulders they rely upon for everything that is remotely lit.
