Trilegal scoops senior (Shardul) Amarchand corp partner Ravindra Bandhakavi [UPDATE-2]


Amarchand Mangaldas Gurgaon-based corporate, private equity and M&A partner Ravindra Bandhakavi is in the final stages of discussions to join Trilegal, potentially with his team, according to four authoritative sources.

However, Trilegal's partnership has not yet agreed to his joining tomorrow in a vote that is set to conclude later today.

Update 14:08: Trilegal’s partnership has voted in favour of Bandhakavi joining its partnership.

Update 14:20: Trilegal has issued a press release, stating:

Trilegal is pleased to welcome Ravindra Bandhakavi as a partner of the firm.  Ravi joins us from Amarchand Mangaldas where he was a partner and practice leader in the corporate department.  He will be based in Trilegal’s Delhi office and is expected to join the firm shortly.

Anand Prasad, member of Trilegal’s Management Committee said, “We are delighted to have Ravi join us.  Trilegal is committed to growing its corporate practice and we believe that Ravi’s reputation and his client base will further strengthen the practice.”

Bandhakavi had joined Amarchand Mumbai in 2000 after graduating from NLSIU Bangalore in 2000, then joined SUN Group / SUN Apollo in 2005, leaving as vice president / general counsel in 2008 to rejoin Amarchand Mumbai in 2009 after a masters in management at London Business School.

He moved to the firm’s Delhi office in 2011 and then relocated to Amarchand’s Gurgaon office when it opened in September of last year.

He was expected to be elevated into the firm’s new Delhi equity partnership started by Shardul Shroff, in the expected break-up between Amarchand Delhi and Mumbai.

Trilegal managing partners declined to comment or did not respond to calls seeking comment.

Bandhakavi declined to comment when contacted.
