Trilegal has voted to admit into its all-equity partnership counsel Ramakant Rai in its corporate practice and Nayantara Nag in the projects practice, effective 1 October.

Nag is a 2008 Delhi University graduate and focuses primarily on water and waste management, roads, renewable energy (wind and solar), smart cities, oil and gas and affordable housing.

Co-founding partner and head of Trilegal’s projects practice Akshay Jaitly commented about Nag in a press release: “She started her career with the firm and over the course of her career has developed into an excellent lawyer with exceptional work ethic, technical skills and commitment to client service. Nayantara will be a welcome addition to the projects practice where her special focus on public infrastructure projects will add significantly to our overall client service offering.”

Rai, a 2007 NLIU Bhopal graduate, specialises in strategic M&A, corporate commercial work and insolvency, with corporate partner Yogesh Singh commenting: “Ramakant is an outstanding lawyer and a solid addition to our corporate team. He will bolster our presence in the National Capital Region.”

Corporate partner Charandeep Kaur added that Rai had “worked on many of the firm's top transactions” and would be “an asset to the firm as we look to grow our corporate footprint”.

Indeed, over the past few years we had reported on Rai's involvement (with Kaur as the lead partner) on a number of deals, such as for Hitachi Metals, for Tata Power, Canadian company JSS Medical Research as well as the underwriters on the IPO of controversial tablet maker Datawind in Canada.

Rai had joined Trilegal in Delhi 2010 from Juriscorp in Mumbai. Ramakant worked with Juriscorp in Mumbai before he joined Trilegal in 2010 and has been with the firm since. He has worked on a number of transactions across a range of practice areas including telecom, financial services and manufacturing.

The two promotees increase Trilegal's total partnership to 41, after Kannan Rahul having joined in August from J Sagar Associates (JSA) and Nisha Kaur Uberoi in May from AZB & Partners.

As we reported yesterday, Shardul Amarchand has promoted 11 to non-equity partner to reach a total headcount of 102 equity and non-equity partners.
