Pranjal Bora out after lifetime at LuthraPranjal Bora out after lifetime at Luthra

Luthra & Luthra partner, Pranjal Bora, homegrown at the firm for 15 years, has left the firm, we have learned.

He specialises in corporate, mergers and acquisitions and energy and infrastructure.

Bora had been at Luthra nearly uninterrupted since graduating from NLSIU Bangalore in 2002, taking year out of his Luthra career after making partner in 2010, spending from 2011 and 2012 at the University of Pennsylvania for an LLM.

Bora has not replied to several emails requesting comment since last week.

We have reached out to Luthra management for comment.

Haha, yes, that may have something to do with it.

Also, we usually try to give leavers at lesat one chance to comment before reporting on their move, in case there are any sensitivities, etc, since management at many firms can be very vindictive.

Pranjal specialized in EPC and had a steady repeat clientale in it. The sabbatical for LL.M. saw others poach his clients and final nail in the coffin was the IBC. Many of his clients are now in the ICU. The transactional lawyers understand that their demand and worth in firms is transactional. The management does not have the stamina to wait it out in the lean phase, especially at the partner level, and of one not given to sycophancy.
