Link Legal (DH) Mumbai hires RM Partners lit-corp duo Nikhil Rodrigues, Jyoti Maheshwari as partners

RM Partners Rodrigues, Maheshwari join Link LegalRM Partners Rodrigues, Maheshwari join Link Legal

Link Legal India Law Services has hired the co-founders of RM Partners, Nikhil Rodrigues and Jyoti Maheshwari, as partners in its Mumbai office.

RM Partners had been founded in 2012, with their practices merging with Link Legal on 1 November 2017, specialising in M&A, PE, infrastructure, litigation and real estate.

We had reported that RM Partners had filed a John Doe petition in 2016 to block torrent leaks of Udta Punjab, which resulted in a too-wide list of blocked websites.

Rodrigues had begun his practice in 2003 at DH Law - which had merged with Link Legal in January of this year - and later worked with erstwhile Amarchand Mangaldas, Kochhar & Co and Desai & Diwanji, before starting RM.

He specialises in contentious matters across all business sectors, according to the press release.

Maheshwari works in M&A, private equity and general corporate commercial.

Before setting up RM Partners, she had been working with Kochhar & Co, as well as Khaitan & Co and IL&FS Trust Co.

Co-managing partner Nusrat Hassan commented: “With their addition, we are 11 partners in Mumbai.

“I have known Jyoti and Nikhil for many years now and I am confident their addition will add strength to our Mumbai operations. We welcome them on board and wish them all the very best.”

Pls cover the student strike at PU. If GLC allows students to skip classes and intern why can't PU do it?

3 merger in 4 years. All 100% disasters. Brilliant strategy and approach. Do you have Rahul Gandhi as your adviser or these decisions are from in-house talents?

some comments have been conveniently deleted. Kian is Phalaj Nihanali Version 2. I think some people must have got hurt about these "NPAs" - DH Law and RM Partners.
