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

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.”
