ELP managing partner Suhail Nathani commented in the firm’s press release: “We extend a warm welcome to Akshay as he joins our Dispute Resolution team. His extensive and specialized experience and knowledge in the financial and commercial dispute space compliments the immense depth of our litigation and dispute resolution practice. Arbitration is increasingly becoming the preferred choice for clients involved in commercial disputes. ELP has built a robust arbitration team to meet the needs of this rapidly evolving area of practice.”
