Durgesh Singh joins DMI

Delhi Link Legal India Law Services partner Durgesh Singh has joined DMI Finance as its group chief legal officer.

DMI was founded in 2008, and is a non-banking financial company (NBFC) that does corporate lending, housing finance, consumer finance and asset management, having last year been in the process of raising a Rs 1,000 crore fund in the distressed assets space, according to Mint.

2005 Delhi University graduate Singh, had been an associate partner at Link Legal since 2015 and was promoted to partner in 2017.

He had begun his career at Delhi’s Titus & Co in 2005, moved to Amarchand Mangaldas Mumbai from 2008 to 2010, and then spent five years at Dua Associates before joining Link Legal.

We have reached out to him and Link Legal for comment.

Former Link Legal associate partner Ashutosh Narang has also joined investment and financing NBFC Capital India Finance as head legal, according to LinkedIn and Bar & Bench.

A Symbiosis Pune 2006 graduate, Narang had joined LInk Legal in 2016 after his NUS Singapore LLM and stints at Wadia Ghandy and AZB & Partners.

Narang focuses on advising banks, financial institutions and corporate on structured finance, debt capital markets, debt restructuring, banking, private equity and general corporate advisory including a large variety of debt transactions such as debt capital market issue, syndicated or consortium loans, external commercial borrowings and other offshore borrowings, restructuring of debt including CDRs and SDRs, strategic and private equity investments, according to his LinkedIn profile.

The two are at least the fifth and sixth partners to have left Link Legal in the last three months alone, following associate partner Alok Sonker joining Luthra, Gurgaon partner Raunak and Mumbai partner Nikhil Rodrigues, and Saloni Gupta in Delhi, who joined Apple.

In March, Link Legal associate partner Rajdeep Choudhary had joined HSA Advocates as a partner.

However, in July the firm had re-hired Apurbalal Malli as associate partner in Hyderabad, and in February the firm had promoted Siddharth Srivastava to equity partnership.
