Khaitan PA Soumyadri Chattopadhyaya joins client Parkway Pantai as 1st lawyer post Fortis-IHH buyout [CORRECTION]

Khaitan’s Soumyadri Chattopadhyaya moves into healthcare sectorKhaitan’s Soumyadri Chattopadhyaya moves into healthcare sector

Khaitan & Co principal associate Soumyadri Chattopadhyaya has joined healthcare provider Parkway Pantai India as legal counsel on Tuesday.

Correction: We have received communication from Parkway that his job title is legal counsel, and not general counsel. He will be seconded to Fortis Healthcare to assist with the integration of the company.

Parkway is a large Asian private healthcare provider with presences in India, China, Brunei, Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia. It is a part of Malaysia-based IHH Healthcare.

Parkway does not have a legal function in India and Chattopadhyaya is the first to join the company in a legal capacity in India. The role has been created following the $1.1bn acquisition of Fortis Healthcare by IHH.

The Fortis acquisition makes Parkway the second-largest healthcare provider in terms of its number of beds, following Apollo.

While at Khaitan, Chattopadhyaya had advised IHH on its acquisition of Ravindranath GE Medical Associates.

He declined to comment when contacted.

A GLC Mumbai 2009 alumnus, Chattopadhyaya began his career at Pestalozzi as a foreign associate and moved on to Majmudar & Partners and AZB & Partners before joining Khaitan as an associate in September 2014.

He was promoted to senior associate in April 2016 and principal associate in April 2018 and was part of the corporate commercial practice at the firm.

At Parkway he will be based in Mumbai at its India operations division and will report to legal head Tan Kee Hwee who is based in Singapore.
