PKA partner Bhumesh Verma joins DGS as first lateral partner hire

PKA Advocates partner Bhumesh Verma joined DGS Associates effective 1 February, joining as the first non-founding partner in the 10-year old Delhi firm, taking its partner count to three. He said that he joined with associate partner Vikas Gaur.

Verma graduated from CLC Delhi in 1994 and was a partner at Khaitan & Co from 2006 until 2009 when he joined PKA Advocates.

“It is purely a professional move. The idea behind reuniting with my old colleagues and longstanding friends is to have a larger client pool to access and service and optimization of our skillsets together,” Verma said in an email. “I will continue servicing my existing clients (relationship in respect whereof) was initiated by my team at PKA ”

DGS Associates is a full service law firm which was founded by Ameeta V Duggal and Niti Sudhakar in 2004, with whom Verma had worked at boutique firm Associated Law Advisors before DGS was founded.

It now has 15 lawyers including the three partners, and also has an office in Assam, said Verma.

Duggal said in the email: “We have been looking to expand our presence for some time and Bhumesh’s experience and expertise bring in a lot of synergies at DGS We are very excited about the way forward and have agreed to scale up further in a phased manner.”
