‘Once an NDA-ite, always an NDA-ite’: Nexus VP Legal Harshita Srivastava re-joins Nishith to head VC practice

Nexus VP Legal Harshita Srivastava returns to NDANexus VP Legal Harshita Srivastava returns to NDA

Former Nexus Venture Partners vice president legal Harshita Srivastava has joined Nishith Desai Associates (NDA) in Mumbai to head its venture capital (VC) practice.

A Symbiosis Pune 2009 alumnus, Srivastava is homegrown at NDA, with a break from the firm since July 2015 when she left as senior associate to join Nexus where she was second-in-command after general counsel Arun Madhu.

Madhu joined Nexus as its first GC in 2012 from Phoenix Legal, where he was a principal associate.

Srivastava has led venture capital investment transactions for over 20 companies in India and has assisted in mergers and acquisitions and strategic partnerships, led legal due diligence, negotiations and execution of investment agreements, according to a comment from NDA.

Srivastava commented: “I owe my entire professional self to NDA. Having worked with NDA right from my internship days to my work life of around 6 years, all that I am today as a professional, I learnt from NDA. Besides the aforesaid, what attracts me the most towards NDA is the firm's culture of promoting learning and development at all levels; the culture of self-discipline and the idea of a flat organization.”

NDA founder Nishith Desai commented: “We are excited to have her back. Once an NDA-ite, always an NDA-ite!”

They do not have such designations at the firm, as it is a company and not a partnership. As far as I know, Heads of Practice as equivalent to Partners, Co-Heads are equivalent to Associate Partner, Senior Members of Teams are equivalent to Principal/Senior Associate.

Aur intern toh intern hote hai.

Kian please cover this issue of national importance: a local bar association had passed a resolution asking lawyers not to represent the bus conductor in the Ryan school case. Now the CBI probe has shown that he was framed by the police and the real culprit is another student who murdered the boy. Please ask these bar association people to explain.
