Advani & Co litigation partner Shashank Garg has left the firm to join Delhi litigation firm Suri & Co as partner.

“[Advani’s] Delhi office is small and for some time it has remained at the same size, so it was important for me to get into something that has more growth opportunities. So I got an offer from Suri & Co.

“It has around 30 lawyers and has a name in litigation and dispute resolution in Delhi. [Suri & Co founder Mr Rupinder Suri] has now [in 2009] been designated as a senior [advocate] so we have the firm’s credentials and his own credentials, they have a separate corporate team, the office size is bigger,” commented Garg.

Garg said that at Suri he will be building on the dispute resolution practice with a focus on international commercial arbitration, while his matters at Advani will be handled by the firm’s litigation partner Apar Gupta.

Suri & Co now has four litigation partners.

Garg, Gupta and former Advani partner Animesh Sinha had joined the firm in June 2011 after their independent litigation and corporate advisory practice Accendo Law Partners had merged with the firm. Sinha left Advani two years ago, confirmed Garg.

 Advani managing partner Hiroo Advani has not reachable for comments by Legally India since yesterday.
