Darshika Singh joins Mitsui India’s legal team

Link Legal India Law Services associate partner Darshika Singh has joined Japanese conglomerate Mitsui & Co’s India subsidiary in-house, in its Delhi legal team in mid-January.

She is understood to be reporting to the general manager of Mitsui’s India legal division, Takaaki Oki, who is heading a small legal team from Delhi. Oki, a 1996 Kyoto University law graduate with a 2005 LLM from Boston University, has been at Mitsui since 2006, in a variety of roles.

Mitsui is one of Japan and the world’s largest so-called keiretsu conglomerates, operating in a variety of sectors and services, including financial services, real estate, shipping, food and beverages, including alcohol, and industrial machinery.

It is a return to the Japanese industrial giant for her, having been on a one-year secondment at Mitsui’s Tokyo office from 2017 until July 2018, while she had been a principal associate at Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas.

The 2007-NLIU Bhopal graduate had joined Link Legal as an associate partner shortly after she returned from Japan, in October 2018.

She had worked at Khaitan & Co from 2009, after an LLM from Cambridge University before moving to Shardul Amarchand precursor Amarchand Mangaldas in 2013.

She had also had a stint with the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy in Delhi in 2012.
